BAUCHKLANG is a five-piece “vocal groove collective” from Austria. With a unique mixture of human beatboxing, mouthpercussions and vocal sounds, they are covering a musical landscape stretching from Electro over Minimal, to Dub and Hip Hop, using only their voices on the way.
Formed in 1995, Bauchklang released their debut album “Jamzero” in 2001. Not only the support from the Austrians (Bauchklang won 2 Amadeus Awards for “Best Album” and the “FM4 Award” in 2002) this album also brought them to the renowned international Festival “Transmusicales de Rennes” in France. Based on this success, the Vocal Groove Project started touring through Europe and Canada. After 4 Years of permanent touring, Bauchklang released their second album “many people” in 2005. Already regulars at the European festival circus, Bauchklang first ventured into Asia in 2009, with the release of their first live album/DVD “Live In Mumbai”, and a five city club tour through India, which also earned them the Indiecision Award for “Best International Live Act”. In 2010, they were Austrias’ musical ambassadors at the Shanghai Expo and won another 2 Austrian Amadeus Awards for “Best Live Act” and “Best Alternative” back home in their country. Also in 2010, Bauchklang brought along their third studio album “Signs”. Guest Artists contributed to the density and international flair of this album: spoken word icon Ursula Rucker from Chicago, poetry “slameur” Rouda and human beatboxer TEZ from Paris.
In 2011 Bauchklang started recording new “club-oriented” tracks and released a limited edition of the Vinyl/EP “Le Mans”.
After the Vinyl/EP “Ray” in 2012, Bauchklang has released a brandnew album “AKUSMATIK” in January 2013, produced by Patrick Pulsinger.
