Mastering the Berlin Music Scene:

In the heart of Berlin’s vibrant music scene, Separator, under Chris Breinl’s visionary leadership, exemplifies the delicate art of merging creative passion with industry demands. Our band, Separator, has forged a unique path in this bustling musical landscape. Here, we share profound insights to help you navigate this delicate equilibrium.

Crafting Your Unique Sound:

Separator, as a band, consistently challenges conventions by exploring uncharted musical territory. We’ve embraced unconventional instruments, notably featuring the bass guitar as a solo instrument. Crafting a distinctive sound, much like our debut album, “The Static Speaks My Name,” is your key to standing out in the music industry.

Taking Control:

In today’s music world, the DIY approach empowers artists. Separator, like many Berlin musicians, has taken charge of various aspects of our musical journey. From self-promotion to recording, seizing the reins can be challenging but rewarding, offering both artistic freedom and financial control.

Pursuit of Excellence:

Our debut album attests to our unwavering commitment to quality. To make your music marketable, invest in high-quality recording equipment and maintain production values aligned with your creative vision. Striving for excellence ensures your music not only resonates emotionally but also captivates listeners with its professional sheen.

Building Collaborative Relationships:

Separator has cultivated a vast network of photographers, videographers, and producers, forging an artistic alliance that elevates our visual and sonic identity. Networking extends beyond connecting with fellow musicians; it includes collaborating with professionals who breathe life into your artistic vision. The more diverse and dynamic your network, the more opportunities you’ll encounter.

Honoring Your Craft:

Musicians often grapple with the dilemma of offering music for free or charging for it. Separator has found a harmonious balance, respecting the intrinsic value of our art while ensuring accessibility. Providing free content can attract an audience, but we also sell albums and merchandise to honor the craftsmanship behind our work.

The journey to harmonize creativity and business in the music industry is a perpetual one. Nevertheless, it’s a voyage all musicians must embark on to cultivate sustainable careers. By finding this delicate balance, your creative spirit can flourish, and your music can reach a broader audience. In Berlin’s pulsating music scene, Separator is a testament to innovation, a commercial spirit, and unwavering commitment to musical excellence.
