Carsten Brocker
keyboards & machines

Hi, I’m Carsten. Growing up in the 80’s I became crazy about the sound of analogue synthesizers. I studied jazz-piano and worked as a keyboarder and sounddesigner for various projects and bands like Polarkreis 18 or jahcoozi. As I was listening to Alphaville already as a child it feels amazing to join the band as a keyboarder now.
