HALLE K was founded 1984, in the empty factory hall "K" in Bürglen, close to the "lake of Konstanz", in Switzerland.

Musicians and artists
from Zürich (CH) to Düsseldorf (D), developed the idea "performances for all senses".
We work as a team on projects with a varying cast of musicians and artists to act with multimedia-projections and sound in live-performances.
HALLE K performs Noise Music to Pop Sound, Experimental Sound from sampler to harmonium and music with conventional and self constructed instruments. Video-, film- and dia projections, overhead projector, light, perfume and pyrotechnic are part of the actions with musicians and performers.
