Valentin Baumgartner likes imperfection, ponys, osmose and diffusion and photosynthese (maybe just a little bit). 
Valentin works as a musician, improviser, composer, lyricist and painter for many many different bands and in a lot of different genres.
From gypsy music via hardcore punk to chansons, free improvisation, noise and reggae/dub. 
Have a look at "Extrafish" and "In Love Your Mother". 
You can find them and most of his other bands below.
After beeing Kronprinz of the Canarian Islands he also composed the music for some Theater Jetzt-productions and Musikfestspiel "WasserLand".
He`s currently composing for an interdisciplinary project called PlaySchubert ("re"composing Winterreise).
