What they say…
“German entertainment treasure!”
Carsten Meyer aka Erobique (born July 11, 1972 in Saerbeck, Westphalia) is a German composer, musician and entertainer who has been active for over 30 years both as a solo artist and as a member of various formations.
Erobique became known above all for his solo concerts as a disco musician, which often flowed into impetuous dance parties and, since he has been around for 30 years, he has been able to attract a very heterogeneous & colorful audience from ages 6 to 60, with often two generations of a family attending concerts, and the average number of spectators in 2022 being between 1000 to 2000.
His performances have included concerts for institutions such as the Goethe Institut as well as in non-European countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Ivory Coast, Tunisia, Israel, China (Shanghai). In addition, there have been and still are engagements as a composer and/or theater musician at numerous German and Swiss stages (Schauspielhaus Zurich, Residenztheater Munich, Schauspiel Hannover, Thalia Hamburg, Schauspielhaus Hamburg, Kampnagel Hamburg, Deutsches Theater Berlin and many others), including collaborations with Herbert Fritsch, Stefan Pucher, Studio Braun. In addition there were composition commissions from Haus der Kunst Munich (audio guide for the ‘Gilbert & George’ retrospective), and radio plays by national German radio stations WDR and SWR.
As well as his solo work, Erobique has been active in various formations, such as International Pony (with DJ Koze and Cosmic DJ), the Hamburg Spinners, ex & Erobique, Songs for Joy (yearly project at the Gorki-Theater in Berlin with Jacques and Chris Dietermann), and others.
