Audible Approaches For A Better Place

I usually don’t steal from other blogs, but in this specific case, I would like to point to a very exciting project that Ronni Shendar and I have been working on for the past few months, and that is slowly wrapping up. And why writing it all over again if somebody else already said it all, and even so beautifully?

The video bellow was created by Ronni Shendar, the soundtrack was made by me.

You can find the original post on Ronni’s blog here.


“I created the video above for the HKW Lokal concert series at the Haus der Kulturn der Welt as part of the ÜBER LEBENSKUNST (Art of Living) initiative, in Berlin.

The 4-part concert series brings Berlin’s international music scene to set the climate change to music: From “Apocalypse Culture” to “Audible Approaches for a Better Place”, from Trucker Songs in the age of electric engines to “climate change” between human voice and computer-generated sounds.

Till Rohmann aka Glitterbug not only created the soundtrack for the video, but he and myself also curated the last event “Audible Approaches for a Better Place” – an evening of 10 performances of diverse artists who each created a new dedicated piece for this evening, all sharing one common goal of making a humble contribution to making this world better and more just through audible means.

You can read more about the project and its upcoming release on the c.sides Label in my previous post. Participants include: Mads Brauer and Casper Clausen (of Efterklang), Gold Panda, Khan (Oral), Jasmina Maschina, Christian Löffler, John Farah, Eliad Wagner, Enas Massalha and the joint project of Glitterbug & Enas Massalha, as well as some very special guests.
