The sounds of Christian Kann

While 2000 was the year I officially started putting my music out there, I had/have been writing songs, experimenting, improvising, and recording since about 1994. My styles range from lo-fi pop, to weird techno, to mutant ambient…

I have also operated several record labels since 2000 (most notably BSBTA, A Beard of Snails, and Metaphysical Circuits) — which have served as outlets for my own work, as well as for the sounds of hundreds of other creators worldwide.
