S.K.E.T. (D)


(official homepage) a rhythm-noise project from Rostock / East- Germany that began in 1994.

We’ve worked on different projects in a range of musical styles, including EBM, Electro, Noise, Ska and Neo-Classical.

The City of Rostock was a member of the old Hanseatic League.

Formerly it had three dockyards, one of which was in the middle of the city.

This dockyard lay directly on the Warnow river. We grew up on the other side of the Warnow. Every day the air was filled with loud noises, as the dockyard workers derusted enormous steel plates. The sound of this industrial work has always had a strong influence on us. With the fall of the GDR in 1989 the dockyard was closed and the noise of dockland industry was replaced by an uncanny silence.

The cathartic effect of music on negative emotions provides us with our motivation to play.When the air is filled with the noise of industrial sounds we feel at home and we feel safe.
