SOUND DRIFTERS FRONT
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.

AN IMMERSIVE MUSIC MEDITATION ON THE SPREE

For their new water stage event Sound Drifters Berlin teamed up with the brilliant pianist Esh Loh to explore alternative ways of experiencing music. On June 28th you are invited to board their moving water stage, lay down and immerse yourself in this soulful piano performance. A spiritual journey through music and sound.
"Music is the most powerful form of magic - experience your inner beauty through it."
Esh Loh

There will be four concert journeys. Each journey is 30 minutes long and needs to be booked in advance because of limited capacity.
The event is free. A cover charge of 10 Euros per ticket applies, but will be refunded if you attend (minus handling fee). Because the raft is moving, late comers will loose their place.

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.
