Getting ready for our first dance performance on water!
“One Planet - A Billion Worlds“ is a dance/concert performance on a moving water stage in Berlin, It deals with the growing polarisation in society. We exist on one planet but we live in 7.8 billion parallel worlds.

The topic is explored in three short pieces through the clash of styles between a classic/traditional and a modern dancer, who have to find ways to combine their skills. Musically they are accompanied by a pianist (keys/electronics) and a drummer (acoustic/digital) who also have to find their way through traditional and modern/electronic interpretation of the motifs.

2 Spaces in Berlin for Musicians fleeing Ukraine

We have space for two Ukranian refugees.
Whilst it feels wrong to specify 'musicians' under these grave circumstances, there is no fair way to pick from the 10000 Ukranians arriving every day in Berlin. However with musicians we can offer further support to settle them over here through help with funding schemes, a creative outlet etc.

Sound Mirror Concerts: 19 June 2021 in Berlin.

The two free concerts start at 14.00 and again at 17.00 each time from Hobrechtbruecke Landwehr Canal and ending one hour later near Elsensteg, Neukoellner Canal.

The stage is moving at walking speed so that the audience can walk alongside it or pick one specific place on the shore and wait till it passes by. The exact location can be seen here via a live tracker that will be online on the day of the concert.
In case of rain concerts will be delayed and starting times will change. Updates will be found here and on facebook.

Please be aware of Corona regulations. Keep your distance. Thank you. See you there

NEW OPERA HERO - 'Sound Mirror' concert installation Berlin

FREE WATER CONCERT - BERLIN

Our summer season starts with a floating concert installation on the Landwehrkanal next week on 19 June as part of 48 Stunden Neukölln

The project 'Sound Mirror' sends three live musicians on a floating stage installation down the kanal.
Soundscapes recorded en route are integrated into the score reflecting the locations they originated from. The shore becomes both stage and auditorium.

You can view the concert from the shore between Tuerkischer Markt and Kiehlufer. Performances are at 14:00 and 17:00. Exact location with realtime tracking will be on:

https://www.sounddrifters.com

Please observe Corona regulations.

After the unavoidable winter lockdown we are re-emerging with our next water project: Sound Mirror.

This concert installation will be performed live, floating on a route along the Landwehrkanal. The neoclassical / electronic score is based on field recordings and impressions from the exact same journey so that the performance 'mirrors' the atmosphere and surroundings at any given point of the way.
For now we are looking for a creative cellist, violin/viola and soprano (choir/sweet voice) who are interested to experiment and perform with us in June. You should be classically trained but open for other styles and not get seasick 😉 Get in touch!

Rico Loop - live at Sound Drifters Berlin

Here is a taster of Ricoloop 's amazing two hour live set, testing our latest prototype. A beautiful ending to a very eventful summer.

In order to develop Berlin’s waterways for artists and performers, Sound Drifters tried out the following concepts in front of a selected audience:

- noise control with live music via headphones in collaboration with JoodLife
- green power battery sharing network by GreenPack Mobile Energy Solutions
- 360 streaming set up by I N V R
- coronaconform hygiene concept with audience members in 1-3 seater boats.
- opening of the water community to outsiders thanks to Spree:publik
- artist collaboration hub for ongoing projects
- non commercial set up thanks to community support.

Big thanks to the Newria family for their patience, India Roper-Evans Photography Joa Luna and Alberto Sanz for filming, Jan Ebel for water logistics, Martin and the Panther Ray - alles im Floß for the floating headquater, Achilleas Gatsopoulos for the camera gear, Jana Spacelight, Steff Ungerer, NEW OPERA HERO and the sea creatures of Rummelsbucht that enjoyed the concert with us. Biggest thanks to Rico to get inspired and come up with this amazing music.

Ricoloop kindly agreed to get inspiration for one of his fantastic live loop sets from the 2nd prototype of our new water stage.

Sound Drifters are working on a cross disciplinary stage- and collaboration concept that is artist driven, corona conform, neighbourhood and eco friendly and brings culture to the waterways. This experiment will take place this Thursday the 24th, with a selected audience of 25 people in small boats.

We would love to invite 2 creative minds to this circle, who organise events or somehow benefit the wider live music/performance community. Please PM. Enjoy!

So here is the issue: This was 3 Laendereck when the Mermaid Opera performance on Isolation Island took place.

If we assume that people are keeping to the regulations in their own boat, we will still need a distancing system between them, that doesn't lock everyone in.
