"Fred und Luna is a miraculous treasure chest with seemingly unlimited realms of Krautelektro and Elektrokraut music."

"Fred und Lunas universe is full of wonderful possibilities and greets you like an old friend whistling a long forgotten melody."


Space music of an outstanding and extraordinary kind: just as you would expect when two mannequins leave their boutique in Karlsruhe/Germany in their minds eye to go and see places where they havent been before.
Im Weltenraum, how they call their new album, is Fred und Lunas next step in their ever-changing series of elektrokraut/krautelektro music. A charming and fascinating voyage through an endless universe of phantasmagorial soundscapes, repetitive rhythms, catchy melodies and even a side trip to Acid House Land.
After their Glück auf on Optimo Music, where they started with a journey through motorik Krautland, followed by a trip to a both atmospheric and boppy soundgarden on their album Im Klanggarten (Bigamo), an intoxicating journey into deep blue areas on Im Tiefenrausch (Compost Records) and tribal dancefloor spots on Im Tanzrausch (Compost), Fred und Luna are now on the traces of spaces, unknown worlds and unknown time zones, accompanied by Patrick Pulsinger, both a mixmaster and a master of mastering.

Who are Fred und Luna?
"Fred und Luna" are two mannequins living in a fashion boutique in Karlsruhe, Germany. They serve as muse for musician, lector, poet and photo/video maker Rainer Buchmüller.

Inspired by his doll friends and his love for German electronic music of the past decades, Rainer Buchmüller under the alias Fred und Luna produces his self-created genres Elektrokraut and Krautelektro: both a modern combination of repetitive rhythms, beautiful melodies, electronic soundscapes and elements from the Krautrock era.

Under the name of Ariston Baton Rainer Buchmüller also writes and performs sound poems and concrete poetry. On live events and especially on exhibitions Ariston Baton is joining Fred und Luna and Rainer Buchmüllers third identity Vizudaru Nono, who is contributing video and photo projections. Together they form the so called Equipe Nadaphysique. The next exhibition featuring all three named personalities will take place end of October 2018 at Rockomotives Festival, Vendôme/France.
