Katharr · Artist Feature
Katharr is a band project by Tom Zimmer and Severin Rauch. Their unique sound is strongly influenced by their talent to improvise with elements from different musical genres. The combination of African-influenced drum patterns with heavily processed guitar tones (produced by Tom on his "Dohle") results in an energetic and psychedelic rock sound that drives the audience to the dance floor.
The video for their song "KlimBim" captures this spirit, enriched with stunning visuals by Dominik Schatz.

The key to Katharr's unique sound is the fact that Tom plays his "Dohle" in all of their songs. The "Dohle" is a stringed instrument designed and handmade by On Guitars based on Tom's idea.
Originally, the main idea was to make an instrument optimized to be played with a bow, but Tom discovered so many other musical expressions with this instrument that I never thought of when I designed it.
Watching Severin play the drums is always very inspiring to me. His effortless style drives the songs at every moment, giving them an organic energy and forward motion.
Adding all sorts of percussive instruments to a minimalist rock drum kit, he creates a beautiful landscape of ever-changing and exciting textures.
