Alexander Veljanov and Ernst Horn formed the avant-garde electronic and atmospheric darkwave ensemble Deine Lakaien in 1985. Horn, an orchestra conductor, and Veljanov, a scholar of theater history, have released numerous collections of their signature experimental renderings of their myriad collective influences (opera, pop, punk, medieval, new wave, folk music) and achieved a well-earned spot in Europe's avant pop hierarchy. Their latest project finds the duo embarking on an orchestral tour with the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt symphony orchestra. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
