Founded 1995 in London by Austrian trumpeter and band leader Franz Hautzinger as an ensemble for experimental music, the project developed over the years into a mixed style fusion band. Various musicians like Fennesz, Tony Buck, Otomo Yoshihide, Burkhard Stangl, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Siewert and others were part of this long-time and often changing project.
Strongly influenced by the electronic music genres of the 1990s, the band developed its specific "Regenorchester Sound" - vigorously pulsating, continuously evolving sound structures with electric guitar power and strong brass melodies based on pushing rhythms. 'Relics' was recorded live at the Klangspuren Schwaz festival in 2019. Franz Hautzinger: quarter tone trumpet, Christian Fennesz: guitar, laptop, Otomo Yoshihide: guitar, turntables, electronic devices, Luc Ex: bass, Tony Buck: drums, percussion.
