We're getting excited about the forthcoming Superbooth in Berlin (May 12th-14th) at the Fez venue. It is in fact the 20th anniversary of the Superbooth which started as a joint modular booth at Music Messe in 2002 (we were there!)
As well as the 150+ exhibitors covering a wide range of electronic music disciplines, there are also several stages for daily performances including the excellent Seaside Stage which has the monster sound system for true appreciation of what modular can sound like.
Opening the performances on the Seaside Stage this year Daniel Miller and Gareth Jones are performing as Sunroof, as well as Atom as headliner. In the early evening, singer-songwriter Lisa Morgenstern will also play here, including a Rhodes Mk8. The latest model of the classic electric piano will also be on display in the space of the trade show.
Friday: Wayne Tailor, Mark Verbos, Julia Bondar and classic „Berlin School" by Kontroll-Raum to close the day in the foyer. In the auditorium at 8 p.m., Hainbach, together with the Gebrüder Teichmann, will
explain electronic music techniques of the past using the example of current cultural
transformation between Germany and Japan on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary
of the Goethe-Institut Tokyo.
Saturday: On the Sea-Side Stage St.Raumen alias T.Raumschmiere and St. John Mantle perform, in the Auditorium Peter Pichler shows the Mixturtrautonium during a workshop and plays a concert in the evening. The finale is provided by Martin Stürtzer on the keyboards in the foyer and the Dutch Maarten Vos with the Korean artist JS Park playing an incomparable techno set in the bungalow village.
