ONE WORLD - A BILLION PLANETS

On 20 August Sound Drifters Berlin present:

One Planet - A billion Worlds, a dance installation with live music on the water

The performance takes place on a floating mirror stage that moves as ‘an intervention in the public space’ on the Landwehrkanal in Kreuzberg around Dreiländereck. The audience can move alongside the stage or experience it in the moment of passing.
The artists interpret the growing polarisation in society. We exist on one planet but live in 7.8 billion worlds. The classical/contemporary choreography by Isabelle Harritz and Megumi Eda is accompanied by New Opera Hero (keys/electronics) and Shramm (beats and percussion).

FLOATING PIANO

On July 23rd from 4 p.m. Sound Drifters Berlin will bring a new free piano concert series onto the water. Four Berlin pianists perform their own neoclassical and electronic compositions on a floating stage that moves continuously on the Landwehr Canal in Kreuzberg. It will start at Dreiländereck and will be between there and Böcklerpark. The exact location can be tracked via the interactive map that will show on this page on the day.
The mirror platform by Berlin designer Spacelight reflects the surrounding environment and merges music, nature and the performance.
The audience on the shore experiences this transformative experience in the moment of passing or can walk alongside to enjoy an entire concert.

about
Freedom on water

Sound Drifters Berlin is an artist led group that wants to defend one of the last free spaces in the city: Berlin’s waterways.
In a world that becomes smaller and smaller, where room for art and culture becomes scarce, we believe in a future on the water. Right in the hectic centre of the city, the river and the canals form a different world where new artistic and social experiences become possible. It is this last unclaimed space that we want to reinvent as a safe, free and inclusive place for encounters between artists and audiences.

for musicians by musicians

Sound Drifters events are organised by performers who are willing to invest a small part of their time in fellow creatives, in order to help build a music scene and give it a home on the water. The musical focus is on combinations of traditional/classical instruments and electronic sources and fx - somewhere between ambient electronic, experimental and new classical.

A CULTURAL HARBOUR FOR THE 21st Century

Sound Drifters Berlin was founded in 2020 with the idea to create water stages for local artists in times when indoor events were impossible. The group built different prototypes for concerts that were in line with Corona regulations.
They are currently working on the plans for a sustainable cultural harbour in the East of Berlin. This will not only consist of performance platforms but also floating workshops and laboratories where artists can collaborate on projects that are inspired by and written for the special ambience of Berlin's waterways - a creative hub for cross-disciplinary projects that combine music, visuals, performance and dance with science and storylines.
In line with this Sound Drifters started a music/art residency in the vicinity, to enable the involvement of international contributors.

SOUND MIRROR, a concert installation by New Opera Hero, on a floating water stage designed by Spacelight, is based on soundscapes that were recorded on a boat ride along the Landwehrkanal in Berlin. The resulting score is played live on the same route and with the same timing, reflecting the locations it originated from. The shore becomes both stage and auditorium. The performance was part of the 48h Neukoelln Festival 2021 featuring Davis West on Violin and Gábor Hartyáni on Cello, supported by Kulturamt Neukölln.
