TEN CITIES 2012 -2014

Ten cities, two continents, three disciplines: The project TEN CITIES teams up about 50 DJs, producers and musicians from Berlin, Bristol, Johannesburg, Cairo, Kiev, Lagos, Lisbon, Luanda, Nairobi and Naples, enabling them to produce music together and exchange their knowledge about the club scenes in their countries. At the same time, a research project will use the perspective of club cultures to explore and investigate the term of the public sphere: 23 researchers will work on essays and studies about those partly unknown music scenes and their sub cultures; ten photographers will capture the same on an artistic level.

TEN CITIES is organized by Goethe-Institut Kenya, Adaptr.Org, C/O Berlin, Centre of Postcolonial Studies at the University of Naples, Italy and a network of partners in ten cities

SOUNDCAMP – UNBOX EDITION

SoundCamp- Unbox Edition will run from 5 – 10 February 2013, and is curated & co-hosted by Border Movement and BLOT! In contrast to SoundCamp in Sri Lanka which took place surrounded by the lush green backwaters of Colombo,  SoundCamp @ UnBox will take place in the urban smog of bubbling south Delhi as part of India’s leading festival for interdisciplinary creative output UnBox Festival.

 

Eight selected SoundCamp participants and four local instrumentalists will work in two ad-hoc studios set up on the festival site. They will compose together and record instrumentalists who’ve been invited by UnBox Festival. The aim is to produce and eventually release an UnBox EP and also to showcase some of the fruits of their labour during a collaborative live performance at the 10th February. The participants will also contribute to UnBox Festival’s GamesLab fellowship by creating a bank of sounds and scores for the video-games being programmed.
