Setting the Beat of Water

Togetherness and wellbeing? Hansgrohe are bringing it with their own electro-pop EP.  That’s the HIX vibe, right there.

Hansgrohe are a leader of innovation, design and quality within the kitchen and bathroom. They’re also part of the HIX community, exhibiting with us in November and partnering our Wellness Conversation.

To celebrate their 120th birthday, they have launched “WaterTunes”, an electro-pop EP composed by Hamburg based musicians Florian Kruse and Andreas Paulsen. Taking inspiration from the sounds that are filtered out as noise when water passes through a shower or tap, the tracks take their lead from original water sounds from the Hansgrohe spray and sound lab.

Transformed into “WaterTunes”, the album tells the story of how Hansgrohe has been Setting the Beat of Water since 1901. Here’s a bit about the artists; Florian Kruse. The artist from Hamburg has dedicated his life to electronic music. As a music producer, DJ, sound designer, lecturer and label owner he lives out his passion for music. As a DJ he brings his characteristic sound to world-famous clubs and creates in his Hamburg recording studio.

His partner, Andreas Paulsen Starting out as a guitarist, the Hamburg artist now spans his range from jazz piano to hip hop and electronic music. He is a live keyboard player and has worked with artists such as Roger Cicero, Johannes Oerding, Otto Waalkes and Ina Müller. He now focuses on composing film scores.

Anand Gandesha at Hansgrohe perfectly sums up this creative partnership: “[t]his music project is really in line with our values, we live water and make waves in the industry. Our guiding theme revolves around making innovations and in doing so, we set a direction, a pace, a beat – it’s what drives us.”
