Bruno Kramm (born 13 October 1967, in Munich) is a German musician, known for programming, playing synthesizers and keyboards, co-fronting and performing backup vocals for the electro-industrial duo Das Ich, alongside Stefan Ackermann. Kramm is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and founder of the German goth club, "Generation Gothic". He is also a record producer for a number of musical projects.

Known for his iconic "devil-horn hair", Kramm sports a dark outfit during performances in Das Ich, often being significantly more "made-up" than vocalist Ackermann. His vocals tend to bring up a deeper and more intense feel that contrast Stefan's fast-paced and shrill, exciting voice.

Bruno Kramm was an active member of the Pirate Party Germany[1] and has been appointed by its board as federal commissioner on copyright issues.[2][3] On the 22nd of April 2016, Bruno Kramm was arrested by the German police for reading a poem written by comedian Jan Boehmermann ridiculing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.[4] In September 2016 Kramm stepped down as party chairman and rejoined Alliance '90/The Greens.[5] He said shortly after he never intended to join the Green Party, he is still a member of Pirate Party and it was all part of a "Hack" to win a court case.
