PC Nackt


Patrick Christensen aka PC Nackt (*1975) is one of the most versatile artists in the German music scene. As a composer, producer, and performer his work is characterized by the combination of classical influences, popular music and improvised sounds. Together with his partner Chérie, he started the electro-punk band Warren Suicide and founded the studio Chez Chérie, which has since become a hub for artists and projects from all over the world.

As musical director and co-founder of The String Theory, PC Nackt has toured with the ensemble and singer-songwriter José González throughout the world since 2011. The album Sekou Andrews & The String Theory (conducted, co-produced and co-composed by PC Nackt) was nominated for a Grammy (Best Spoken Word Album) in 2020.

PC Nackt has been composing music for international film and theatre productions including the TV-series Breaking Bad and most recently Ralf Schmerberg’s current film project Indarella. His soundtrack for the movie Equals, co-written by Sascha Ring and Dustin O’Halloran, was honoured with the Soundtrack Stars Award at the Venice Film Festival in 2015.

PC Nackt also acts as a producer and writer for amongst others Sascha Ring aka Apparat, Yello's Dieter Meier and Albanian singer Fatime Kosumi aka ANDRRA. Apparat's last album LP5 with a song by PC Nackt has received a nomination for a Grammy Award as Best Dance/Electronic Album. In June 2020, PC Nackt released his first solo album Plunderphonia.

Since 2016, PC Nackt has been collaborating with punk poet and director Schorsch Kamerun on a series of electro operas, which have been performed in various European cities.

The String Theory is an artist collective and production company based in Berlin and Gothenburg that since 2007 explores the outskirts of contemporary classical music and wild pop by means of collaborative workshops, studio recordings and live performances. The String Theory pursues a long term experimental approach, investigating new ways of interdisciplinary collaboration, incorporating visual art, developing new performance concepts and facilitating international artist networking.

Being essentially experimental in nature, The String Theory never stops questioning its own goals and sets out to regularly re-invent the way each separate project is conducted, and to further develop the unique sound of the ensemble.

The celebrated collaboration between José González and The String Theory, conducted by Patrick Christensen aka PC Nackt toured extensively in Europe in 2017, 2018 and in spring 2019 in the US and Canada.

In November 2019, the album Sekou Andrews & The String Theory was nominated for a Grammy Award 2020 (Best Spoken Word Album).

“Led by dynamic conductor PC Nackt, the intrepid orchestra embrace the unorthodox, the contemporary and the traditional, combining electronic background noises with luscious string arrangements and insistent brass. Mixing spectral beauty with gifted musicianship, this isn't just impressive, it's progressive.”
