Since 2011 Acid Pauli lives in Berlin, where he became a part of the collective The Feathered Sun.
In numerous collaborations with artists such as Björk or the Philharmonic Orchestra of Würzburg Gretschmann always explores new ways to express himself.

After his debut album „Mst“ released on Clown & Sunset in 2012 his second album “BLD” was released on his in-house record label Ouïe in early 2017. Martin founded this record label together with Nico Stojan and handled the first release themselves.
