Christian Ludwig "Chrislo" Haas (16 November 1956 – 23 October 2004) was a German Neue Deutsche Welle musician best known as a member of Liaisons Dangereuses and a founding member of Minus Delta t, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft and Der Plan. He was also a member of Crime & the City Solution.
Haas was born in Aichach and moved to Berlin. He heavily influenced the German music scene of the 1980s through his work on the synthesizer (Korg MS-20) with bands such as Minus Delta t, D.A.F., CHBB/Liaisons Dangereuses and Crime & the City Solution. He is regarded as one of the founding fathers of techno and modern electronic dance music. His former D.A.F bandmate Gabi Delgado said in 2015 that "Chrislo Haas influenced me more than Robert, in his extreme, über-punk way. Chrislo was a natural-born provocateur, which I liked."
Haas died in late October 2004 at the age of 47 years in Berlin from circulatory collapse due to excessive alcohol consumption.
