Listen Up! Festival is coming up this weekend. It’s a two day music festival “to change the rules” and I am so excited for this weekend of super talented musicians, super interesting workshop leaders and a panel discussion on the theme of “arty berlin – who is it for?”.
I’ve been working on the festival, which is funded by the Berlin Music Board, since June and this is the home stretch…at this point I am all strung out! I have to do physical activity to relax my mind and body. I have had so little time to do music and approach it like a sweet stolen treasure. So the other day, whilst waiting for the kettle to boil, I played a little synth and recorded this messy sketch below. It was a sweet short burst! Maybe you’ll hear one of the tracks in the flesh and in the fullest when the festival is over.
Until then, it would be wonderful to see some old and new faces at Listen Up! this weekend. I will be there from the start to the end, at the concert in Gretchen on Friday, the workshops and panels on Saturday and the concert in Südblock on Saturday night. And honestly, the line up is the bomb! Check it out here.
