Chance Productions was founded by Wolfgang Salomon in the late eighties. The first L.P. produced in 1988 at Chance Studios was called ”Rebellen in Herrgotts Namen” (‚Rebels in the Lord’s name‘ -author Leo Weißmantel) and was a combination of literature and music, which would nowadays be termed an early version of the audio-book.
Over the following years, Chance Productions formed the platform for all Wolfgang Salomon’s CDs and theatre pieces. In 1989 the studio moved to the Theater am Neunerplatz, sharing the first floor and a lot of ideas with former theatre director Thomas Heinemann, who then co-produced nearly all the theatre music CDs.
