Peter Rehberg (1968 - 2021)

“I have always found that if you want to make something noisy, you have to make something that is harmonic as well. Dissonance and resonance have to co-exist, for the other to work, I think.”

Peter Rehberg, the musician and record-label head of Editions Mego, who was a globally respected figure in underground music, has died unexpected aged 53.
Our deepeest sympathy to his daughter Natasha, Isabelle Piechazyk, family and friends. Rest in noise.
