Gut Plays Gut – Her History

DJ Gig with Gudrun Gut

Gudrun Gut, musician, DJ, producer, radio presenter and manager of two music labels, is one of the outstanding protagonists of electronic music in Germany. As early as the late 1970s, while studying at the Berlin University of the Arts, Gut became one of the central figures of the alternative music scene in Berlin, from post-punk to techno and indietronics. She founded, in 1979, together with Karin Luner, Bettina Köster, Eva Gössling and Beate Bartel, the band Mania D and, in 1980, co-founded the band Einstürzende Neubauten. Gut gained international recognition in 1981 with the band Malaria!, founded together with Bettina Köster, and their hit Kaltes Klares Wasser. In the 1980s, the project Matador and a great number of radio productions and radio plays followed. In the early 1990s, she worked together with Myra Davis in the context of the mixed-media project Miasma and founded the Ocean Club project, an open collective of musicians and artists associated with the club scene. As part of this project, she published, among others, the album Members of the Ocean Club and, from 1997 to 2012, produced and hosted, together with Thomas Fehlmann, the weekly program Ocean Club Radio on radioeins. In 1997, she founded the label Monika Enterprise. In 2007, she released her first solo album I put a record on. This was followed by a great number of concerts throughout the world, including the USA, Australia, Russia, China, France and Scandinavia. In recent years, she made the albums Baustelle and Rekonstruktion in collaboration with Antye Greie (AGF), another solo album Wild Life and, in collaboration with Hans-Joachim Irmler, the album 500m. As part of the exhibition History is a Warm Gun, Gudrun Gut presents her own musical history with live remixes of selected pieces.
