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

Musicians and artists

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.
