Is he punk? Is he techno? Is he a sonic poet? The only thing with can say about Marco Haas with certainty is that this guy has been making sure people have a good time since he started making music in the early 90’s, with his bands, his solo project T.Raumschmiere (the name is a cut-up from the German title of William S. Burroughs short story “The Dream Cops” -“Die Traumschmiere”), and the Shitkatapult label he co-founded and is still co-running. Energy infused dj sets, atmospheric live performances and and a rock n roll attitude are his trademarks, humour is his middle name. Ladies and gents, Mr T.Raumschmiere!

 

PAST

My name is Marco Haas but you might know me as T.Raumschmiere. I was born in Heidelberg and grew up in Heidelberg. When I was a child my idol was not born yet, because it was not born yet. When I was 15, I started playing the guitar. It was then when I realised that I suck in playing the guitar and decided to play the drums. Since then I rock.

One of the best gigs I played was every gig. It was so much fun as always and ever will be.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Helge Schneider. I loved how he made me laugh.

PRESENT

Now I live in Berlin with 4 million other Berliners. In my house you can find me (sometimes) and my refrigerator is usually full with food and drinks. I enjoy walking through the woods and doing interviews a lot. I can spend hours doing nothing. One of my favorite places to visit is my bed, because it’s so cozy.

On weekdays I work and on weekends I usually work. My favorite song at the moment is zwerg. A film I watched lately and really liked was Hotel Transilvania 2. The last series I watched and loved was Sneaky Pete.

I am very inspired by silence. My dream is to stay anti. My worst nightmare is to go pro. I love my wife and my kids and my friends and hate everything/everyone else. I just cannot stop doing interviews. I get totally fucked up, when I don’t drink enough. The next day I need to drink a lot.

Local Suicide reminds me of what/who is local suicide??

FUTURE

Tomorrow I do some interviews. Next month I play some shows. Next year I play more shows. In 10 years I hope I still play shows (and do some interviews of course ;-).

HYPOTHESES

If I wasn’t a boy, I would be a girl. If my life was a Hollywood movie, I would have the main role, because it’s still MY life. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be my wife of course!! What a question ;-).
If I was a car, I would be a monster truck. If I was an animal, I would be a meerkat. If I was a drug I would be love. If I was an invention, I would be lsd. If I was an object, I would be a dildo.

If I could play with anyone it would be everyone. I would like to collaborate with Bill Hicks. If I had only one wish, it would be DO.MORE.INTERVIEWS.. I would never give stupid interviews, because it sucks.

ADVICE

My word of advice to the reader would be to MAKE LAUGH NOT WAR.
