About André Gonçalves alias ADDAC @SUPERBOOTH17 (SB17)
SUPERBOOTH is about meeting the makers, getting insights into the work of manufacturers and learning more about new products than their technical specifications. This Gesprächskonzert is a good example for many brands in eurorack, as many manufacturers have an artistic backround – get to know the mind behind ADDAC and find out what André Gonçalves was doing before inventing tons of intersting modules.
Jürgen Michaelis @SchneidersBuero (SB17)
Jürgen Michaelis is building the famous Jomox drum machines for almost twenty years. In this video he and Herr Schneider are talking about the history of his company and show a little bit of what the Alpha Base is capable of.

Ondomo – a unique musical instrument – Gesprächskonzert (SB17)
The Ondomo is a very well made remake of the Hondes Martenot as invented in France roundabout 1930. In this video the instrument is introduced by a japanese “ondomist” playing examples and perfomring some nice atmospheric impressions on this monophonic instrument. It is showing very good what kind of an impact a simple melody can have when played on a real instrument.
This is also a very good example on how to set up a so called “Gesprächskonzert” on the SUPERBOOTH to generate even more interest towards your products and visions.
Eventide and C-Base (SB17)
One of the three big global players for reverberations, the company Eventide introduced a eurorack modular solution and a good delay FX on SUPERBOOTH17 with a so called Gesprächskonzert. The introducing moderation of this video gives you an insight of the C-Base Berlin, that was an additional stage for artists like Robert Lowe and Dieter Doepfer this year, and will be again with SUPERBOOTH18 as Superbooths official aftershow venue.
Steve H & Buchla (SB17)
On Superbooth17 there were three concerts with Buchla Synthesizers and here we will show you the one by Steve H from Los Angeles who is an experienced musician and trainer for software (!) musical instruments btw. Introducing this Patrick Detampel is giving us a short insight to the prototypes of a System 100 clone series to be coming in very shortly by Catalyst Audio. Don Buchla was “the other” old boy of Synthesizers creating “systems in progress” that was not made to be used with keyboards or to play melodies on.
Mark Verbos & Matt Didemus live (SB17)
Mark Verbos and Matt Didemus played a performance on SUPERBOOTH17 here. Both living in Berlin now visited Herr Schneider in his office for a chat where they recorded this interview. At the end of it you will see the performance Mark and Matt played live, before this we show you the brilliant Gesprächskonzert by Mark Verbos introducing his modular products to our great audience on Superbooth and to you. Please forgive us some cuts that we had to make towards dropouts and technical issues while recording.
Ken MacBeths FucKeTyBucKetY (SB17)
FuckeTybUcKetY MKIIII was giving a weird performance in the concerthall on this years Superbooth. The Band around Ken Macbeth playing two of his outstanding Elements Synthesizers was known as a rumour from the internet so far, having released some very few noisy recordings.
Klangforschung by Stroeme live (SB17)
STROEME playing live on just two Doepfer A-100 systems recorded on Superbooth 2017 is the first release of a full concert from the Berlin based trade show for electronic music and instruments called SUPERBOOTH. More than 50 performances and product presentations will be introduced and explained on this channel introducing the 2018 show.
Joker Nies & Joerg Sunderkoetter (SB17)
One of the uncounted real synth concerts and a really smart performance on SUPERBOOTH17 was the product presentation alias Gespraechskonzert for KORG in the Cinema. Jörg Sunderkötter – known as Sound&Recording’s earlier chief editor, here on the keyboards – and his studio partner Joker Nies – also an expert for circuit bending – had some problems to find on stage but then … turn it loud and see yourselves.
Mario Hammer (SB17)
The first real performance – officially the AKAI-Gespraechskonzert – on SUPERBOOTH17 was the introduction by >Mario Hammer and the lonely robot< for his latest record release called >je L’ai calisseé la<. He played another gig the same afternoon on the seaside stage, but unfortunately it was not recorded. So please buy the record in a competent store to calm down or for your next aftershow event?
Modular Kids – Workshops (SB17)
In order to make it easier for pupils, children and other adolescents to gain access to knowledge from the application of modular systems, the freelance artist Gammon from Vienna has developed a workshop for SUPERBOOTH17 for up to 18 participants. Here he comments on the results in a personal discussion with the event’s initiator.
