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:

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 #waterstage 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!

Robin Sukroso with Acpad guitar controller live at Sound Drifters Berlin

Brilliant performance by RobinSukroso who is just working on his new ACPAD guitar midi controller and who was kind enough to try out the first prototype of our mirror stage. We are learning a lot and version 2 of the platform is ready for Ricoloop later on this month.
After that we will encourage cross disciplinary collaborations to push this constantly evolving project even further.

Massive thanks to the whole team including:
I N V R for the 360 gear, India Roper-Evans Photography for filming,
JoodLife for the Kopfis, GreenPack Mobile Energy Solutions for the power, Falk and IPSE for the usage of their pier, Frenchkist for orga and inspiration, Sasha for the boat and the ever so patient Newria family.

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.

Suggestions?

HISTORY - Part III > Learning Curve

To make one thing clear from the outset: SOUND DRIFTERS have not been part of the organisation of the Club Culture Demonstration on the 31st of May. Our focus is on the development of Isolation Island, with the express goal to create a Corona compliant stage for artists in Berlin.
We didn't foresee the outcome of the demonstration and still support the demands of the organisers in regards to cultural events and the treatment of artists. However we very much regret the hurt and offence caused to people who are affected by Covid 19 and the message that the news images sent out.

Back to Isolation Island's history:
Although the stage wasn't used for any official concerts, it was claimed by artists on the 9th of May for impromptu and non publicised performances. Only locals who were already on the water were present. The result seemed promising for official events, but since the 31st it is clear that the issue of crowd control (in a public space that we want to preserve as an uncontrolled free area) is one of the main challenges for any further development of the stage.

We think that our goal is more relevant than ever as current scientific advice indicates that open outdoor areas, if used properly, are the best place to restart human interaction.

HISTORY - part II

A GIFT TO THE CITY OF BERLIN

(excerpts from the open letter that the EINFACH SO collective sent to the city of Berlin, after setting up the ‘Isolation Island’ water stage in the middle of Landwehrkanal, Kreuzberg)

SOUND DRIFTERS are evolving this original concept and we will present new solutions. We too ask you to discuss the issues around cultural performance in the public domain, especially in one of the last remaining free spaces in Berlin: The waterways.

Isolation Island - making of
