Anne Laplantine, native Frenchwoman and citizen of Berlin by choice,
belongs to the rare species of musicians who speak a unique musical
language. We even venture to claim that it's a new language in the field
of electronic pop music. Concerning structure and composition, Anne

Over the years, Anne Laplantine has deliberately confused her audience
by recording for different labels under many different guises: As
MICHIKO KUSAKI she had a release on the Vienna-based Angelika

ANNE HAMBURG, for Autopilot under her given name.
Her first album for Ahornfelder is completed and will be released in 2008.
