Artists — Contriva
[09/06] The exchanging of glances and the interchanging of instruments. That is part of what stays in one's memory of Contriva. At least after having seen them on stage once. These four are friends from schooldays on. Back from the days when a guitar was meant to be a big promise. And when a guitar was meant to be the rails that guide four biographies. Masha Qrella, Max Punktezahl, Rike Schuberty and Hannes Lehmann followed these rails. They would not have reached the places where they are now without Contriva. Similarly, Contriva wouldn't exist any longer, if it weren't an affair of the heart of these four friends.
It all started in Berlin in 1997. One could watch Berlin fashions come and pass over again. Sometimes Contriva was part of it, played concerts in private living..
