ROTATONICS arose from the shared passion for the music of Italian composer Nino Rota.

ROTATONICS are the two Berlin-based musicians Marie-Elsa Drelon and Carsten Wegener.

We love strange instruments and their combinations: Piano and lapsteel, organ and musical saw.

Besides film music we also play chanson, tango and classical music.


What's up...


Our very first Album" The Lost Key" is completed and out in the world. 

It is a cinematic sound novel about a woman right in the middle of her years, a lost key, a big city. 

The more Sylvia walks away from her home to find the
key, the more her old life and identity fade into the sound
of nocturnal street-scenes. She walks on and on, diving deeper into a world, that becomes more and more surreal ... 

With every step the border between her inner and outer worlds, between dreams and reality, between the things she sees with her eyes and things that go on in her head, become increasingly blurred. 

Sylvia’s odyssey is accompanied by Nino Rota’s music for Fellini films including 8 1/2, La Dolce Vita and Amarcord, as arranged and interpreted by Rotatonics. 


The Album_Release_Party is on the 10.11. in Berlin.

Come and join us!
