unrest 62|22 two days program linking Tokyo and Berlin on occasion of the 60th anniversary of Goethe-Institut Tokyo.
Together with Makoto Oshiro the Teichmanns have conceptualized a music program for the 60th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut Tokyo, which bridged the gap between historical works from the 60s and today and, via identical acoustic projection spaces, short-circuits Berlin and Tokyo for a moment.
With pieces by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Yasunao Tone and live music by Mieko Suzuki (live electronics), Makoto Oshiro (soundart), Naoko Kikuchi (Koto), Gebrüder Teichmann (live sampling), YPY (Electronics), Tatsuhisa Yamamoto (drums, percussion & objects), ju sei (Songs & etc.), Tomoya Matsuura, okachiho.
As a prelude, Hainbach gave a performative lecture on technology and techniques of early electronic music at Superbooth 2022, which is still available here.
RELISTEN TO MY REMAKING OF MY RESOUND, Berlin 2021Gebrüder Teichmann, Sandeep Bagwhati + Ensemble Extrakte
How does music transform when it crosses listening traditions? Starting from an album by Ensemble Extrakte, 4 successive live concerts and their sound and video recordings gradually interweave. Following Bhagwati's instructions, the musicians comment on, accompany, imitate the preceding concert, before they themselves become the inspiration for the following one - as acoustic memories in the headphones of their colleagues, and as fragments and samples in the sound of the Teichmann Brothers. Here one can listen spellbound and see how new music emerges: designed but unpredictable, guided yet involuntary, rich in tension - and in unexpected beauty. In between, the historian of science Hans-Jörg Rheinberger will reflect on such "iterative listening as artistic research".

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.
