Danielle de Picciotto & Alexander Hacke

The Glasshouse - Danielle de Picciotto & Alexander Hacke

The Glasshouse is an experimental, silent movie, In which Danielle de Picciotto recounts her last bizarre night in NYC in 1986 which turned into a nightmarish dinner filled with terror, strengthening her resolution to leave the crime and drug riddled city of the eighties and also serving as a metaphor for the growing fear and paranoia in our society.

Danielle de Picciotto & Alexander Hacke have initiated Audio / Visual Productions since 2001. In 2011 Alexander composed a Soundtrack for the silent Glasshouse version and in 2012 they toured with the project, inviting guest musicians to participate:

The Nihilist Spasm Band in London, Ontario. Paul Browse in Berlin, Germany. David Eugene Edwards in Denver, Colorado. Steve Forker in Denver, Colorado. Algis Antanas Kizys in Brooklyn, NY

This DVD Contains the Movie as shown during the performances with a choice of five different audio recordings from Berlin, Denver, London, Kärnten, Austria and NYC.

tour pledge

Crime are finishing the recordings for their new album and will now start preparing their live show for the fall of 2012 and 2013. This show will be a unique experience and a complete rendering of the band’s creative vision.

To bring you this show in its full sensory splendor, they need to raise funds so that this new and possibly one-time-only way of experiencing Crime and the City Solution is possible. They have put together a pledge project offering an impressive array of gift and unique Crime memorabilia, artworks and more. As an extra special offer the first 50 pledgers will be named in the credits of the 35mm surrealist film titled ‘Sadness’ (directed by Simon Bonney and featuring music by the Detroit Crime) which they are offering as a download.
