"Einstürzende Neubauten" is an ever-changing experimental music band, originally from West Berlin, formed in 1980. The band is often classified as industrial or electronica, though neither really applies well in describing what it is that Einstürzende Neubauten does or sounds like. The band is best described as creating experimental music with their own personal stylistic sensibilities. One of the band's "trademarks" is the use of self-made instruments (usually, but not always, made out of scrap metal and building tools) and noises, in addition to standard musical instruments. Neubauten has always experimented with sounds, originally in noise music and recently in silence (such as with the ''Silence Is Sexy'' album).
