Using both video and audio, this performance will lead audiences through all stages of Czukay's work, starting with a homage to Karlheinz Stockhausen, a live remix of Canaxis, previously unheard CAN material and his own back catalogue.
Holger Czukay founded the legendary group CAN, responsible for all recordings and editings. Later towards the end of CAN Holger changed from a bass player to a “multi–media” wizard integrating ethnic sources live and incorporating them into CAN’s music. He left the band in 1977. This was the beginning of his solo career.
He had several collaborations e.g. with David Sylvian, Jah Wobble, The Edge, Eurythmics, Brian Eno and Kraftwerk producer Conny Plank. At the beginning of the nineties the new electronic movement inspired him to perform live together with young electronic musicians e.g. Air Liquid. He went on tour through the States with Dr. Walker (Air Liquid) and U-She in19997. Holger Czukay made numerous solo performances in Russia, USA, Japan, Israel, and Europe. In 1997 Holger began to develop his own Internet platform where he completed several audio and video collaborations.
During the years 2004 until 2008 Ursa Major redesigned the former cinema and Can studio which became Holger Czukay’s private dream environment: The Inner Space Studio.
