SUPERBOOTH24 Gesprächskonzerte now online!

All fourteen Gesprächskonzerte (lecture concerts) of SUPERBOOTH24 are now online, you can find them all on the official Superbooth Berlin YouTube channel!

During these presentations all manufacturers presented something new or presented new features for existing products. The combination of musical performance and explanation make the Gesprächskonzerte so valuable. Matt Johnson (Jamiroquai) presented the Yamaha Montage M8x with his suberb playing. Trovarsi even presented patch ideas for two manufactures of eurorack modules FLAME Instruments and Sonocurrent. Mark Verbos presented the new Sawtooth Stack at SUPERBOOTH24. The Sawtooth Stack is the first Verbos module that features MIDI and can be used as a stand-alone device. One surprising presentation was held by PLOYTEC. They showed a USB-to-USB device that makes it possible to use old, otherwise obsolete USB-audio devices again! One example for such a product is the XONE 4D. Great!

Check out some of the Gesprächskonzerte here or all of them here!

The Modular Synthesizer Carousel is on tour

The Modular Synthesizer Carousel by Andreas Schneider consists of various modular systems that all follow the same tempo, with their own speakers and the possibility to explore sounds collectively. In addition to its annual appearances at SUPERBOOTH in Berlin, the carousel also travels regularly.

Most recently, it was on display again at the Festival für selbstgebaute Musik (Festival for Self-Built Music). The weather was great and the Berlin audience was very engaged in exploring the carousel and experiencing the electronic sound generators together. Here you can find some selected pictures of the event.

Next weekend (9.-10. September) the carousel will be a bit more rural, in the Uckermark. Here the association Freunde der Uckermark e.V. (Friends of the Uckermark), represented by Dimitri Hegemann among others, is organizing the UM Festival 2023 for contemporary art, music and literature.

The festival offers a lot of creative entertainment for eyes and ears and everything in between in a great environment. In addition to literature, music and talks, you can also explore the nature of the Uckermark on a guided tour. Thus, the UM Festival offers a welcome different experience.

With the vision of the carousel, Andreas Schneider wanted to create a collaborative experience where people of all ages and skill levels are invited to experiment with sounds. Experiencing the electrically generated sounds of the carousel has now been an attraction at a wide variety of events for more than 15 years.

Video: Taking the bus to SUPERBOOTH23

A great bunch of people, good music, a bus, and a goal – SUPERBOOTH23. This movie has it all. Instruo documented their 2023 trip to Berlin with a camera and give great insight into their personal experience of the journey and into their crew. This creative bunch of people is the expanded team at Instruō, from Glasgow, Scotland. Many of them also contributed to the soundtrack of the documentary. You can find a detailed list in the description of the video on YouTube – that’s a very welcome detail.

The documentary also lets you realize that running a company like Instruo and organizing a trip to a trade fair is way more elaborate than you think. A big Thank You to Jason Lim and the whole Instruo crew for taking us with them on their trip to SUPERBOOTH23 – see you next year!

Video: NERKKIRN live @SUPERBOOTH23

Here is another video of the Strandbühne at SUPERBOOTH23 – this time with NERKKIRN!

NERKKIRN is what happens when you pair two very different electronic musicians with a shared passion for warping sonic technology – and set them loose. German-born Nerk, aka Benjamin Weiss, is a techno veteran, a founding member of the legendary Berlin rave act Tok Tok, with releases on Kompakt, Klang, and V-Records. American Peter Kirn comes from a background in classical and experimental music, and is best known as the editor of CDM (createdigitalmusic.com) and co-creator of the MeeBlip synthesizer.

New video: Masha Kashyna – live @SUPERBOOTH22

This is the concert of Masha Kashyna at the pre-opening of SUPERBOOTH22. Masha Kashyna (1991) expresses herself on vibraphone and soprano saxophone, which results in audio-visual performances with her own moving visual language.

Masha, born and raised in Ukraine, has been living in Germany for several years. Her interest in socio-cultural and artistic movements is translated into a cross-genre and trans-medial way of working.

Her audiovisual performance ‘X Imperium’ combining both – criticism of hungry empires AND voices of resistance – was an important contribution to the event organized under the shadow of the war in Ukraine.

Video: Obertonstruktur der Kaulquappe – live @SUPERBOOTH22

Anyone who is on the road with so much hp has some plans! And the Obertonstruktur der Kaulquappe has delivered! A wonderful set, danceable, entertaining and interesting.
Obertonstruktur der Kaulquappe is a modular synthesizer sound project by Matthias Grossmann and Gabriel Ammon.

Like tadpoles the band is in constant musical transformation during their sets. Sometimes spherical, sometimes driving, quivering – invigorating sounds of electronic music that go deep under the skin. The countless cables, knobs and lights support the hypnotic effect of the driving sounds.

The music of the “Kaulquappen” found its beginnings in 2012 with self-built acoustic devices and a manageable number of synthesizers. They lost themselves from noise to drone and experimental excursions, eventually finding themselves in technoid beats and basslines. Since the beginning of 2018, the duo has been playing an experimental techno set that wants you to dance.

Video: TOKTOK live at SUPERBOOTH22

Toktok are longtime companions of Andreas Schneider and his ventures – in the past they already played at the celebration of SchneidersBuero‘s 4th anniversary and the first Superbooth trade show party in 2002 – so it was about time for a gig again!

The band was formed in 1994, when the members of the group were still working as organizers in the free party scene, collaborating with the soundsystem Spiral Tribe, among others. In the meantime, they had a series of hits, including their collaboration with singer Soffy O and their single Bang Bang in cooperation with Nena.

Video: Linalab live at SUPERBOOTH22

For Superbooth, Linalab brought in an acoustic drummer to add power to her electric guitar, which is processed by a Eurorack modular system. She also uses an array of desktop synthesizers, electronic drums, samples, melodies and noises. Expect electronic post-rock with a touch of dreamscapes and melancholic electronica.

Linalab not only exists on stage, apart from playing in stages and festivals, she understands music as a research, being one of the pioneers in the practice of Live Coding and a becoming a significant artist in Europe in the use of modular synthesizers.

Linalab composed her first work, Eclíptica, inside a telescope and imitated it´s shape. In Doom, her second EP, she tries to imagine how the end of the world would sound, turning out four small destructions. In her work Still Alive, she realizes that there is no Doomsday, only intermediate days, no  apocalypse, no epic destruction, only infinite rearrangements of particles that originate infinite sonic possibilities. The latest and stunning work, Desire Paths, is a meeting point, a mother ship that takes us to hypnotic worlds from which we do not want to return.

The Minibooth!

In about two months it is time for SUPERBOOTH23! There will be new exhibitors from all over the world who will officially attend for their first time. Of course the Superbooth Berlin team is also looking forward to welcome the many exhibitors, guests and artists that have supported the event throughout the years. The list of exhibitors is growing, now there are more than 160 brands listed already and there are more to come.

But the noteworthy news for today is not the number of exhibitors, but an event called Minibooth. It will take place on the weekend before Superbooth, also in the FEZ-Berlin and is focused on education for kids at the age of 5-14. Superbooth Berlin are not the organizers of this event, but of course they support it and maybe some of you have capacities and ideas to attend or contribute to this event, too. Please find the official introduction, the date and contact below. Participation is free of charge and it will be a great opportunity to introduce the fascination for synthesizers to the next generations in a playful way. If you are interested, please write to Tim & Julius at: minibooth@fez-berlin.de

Check out this message by the Minibooth Orga-Team fo more information:

Invitation to participate in the

Minibooth 2023

on May 6 and 7, 2023 12.00 to 18.00 o’clock at FEZ Berlin

For the first time, FEZ Berlin is organizing the Minibooth. As a warm-up for the Superbooth, it aims to introduce the next generation to the different aspects of electronic music. We are looking for creative minds, enthusiastic contributors and people who are interested in getting involved with an interactive offer for children.

Your offer for the kids can be, for example, a stand, an installation or a workshop. It is important that you enjoy guiding the children of different ages on their first journey into electronic music. On the Minibooth, the kids can playfully learn how electronic sounds are created and how you can make them yourself, manipulate them or combine them with your own voice. They will get to know unusual musical instruments and can learn or make new instruments themselves in workshops. Of course, there will also be concerts and a party for the kids, so everyone can try out the dance floor and shake a leg.

The event will take place on May 6 and 7, 2023 – one week before Superbooth. The target group are children and teens from 5 to 14 years accompanied by their parents.

If you are interested in participating, please send us a short email to minibooth@fez-berlin.de as

soon as possible, ideally until 3rd of March.

We will review your ideas and get back to you by the beginning of March to discuss if and how we can implement them on site.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Your Orga Team of the Minibooth

Video: SUNROOF – live at SUPERBOOTH22

In March 2019, Gareth Jones and Daniel Miller were heading to a György Ligeti concert at the Barbican. Friends and collaborators for almost 40 years, the pair – as they often do when together in the same city – spent a couple of hours beforehand improvising with modular systems. Unusually, this time they decided to record the session and then, over a pre-concert meal before heading into the Barbican, Gareth asked a question that seems logical after years of working together on recording sessions or remixing other artists: “Are we actually going to make a record together before we die?”

The following day Daniel phoned him and suggested they do just that!
The result is Electronic Music Improvisations Volume 1, a collection of eight improvised modular pieces recorded as live in various studio spaces across London in the spring and summer of 2019. This album was released by the Parallel Series, a sublabel of Mute on 21 May 2021.

Daniel has been a regular guest and performing artist at SUPERBOOTH since years and we were very happy to have him with Gareth perform on our Beach Stage – who also didn’t have his first appearance on our stages, but performed at the very first SUPERBOOTH in Berlin as “Spiritual Friendship” – his project with Nick Hook!

Today it’s that time again, SooperRadio is going on the air! From 5-7 pm it’s all about electronic music and musical instruments with a Superbooth perspective.

Aditya Nandwana from Animal Factory Amplification gives us a detailed presentation of some of his modules.

In 2018, he was able to win Alexander Hacke for a lecture-concert to introduce the Godeater effect device. Here is the video about it:


A few weeks ago Aditya also visited SchneidersLaden, where he presented his newest (and the older) modules in a workshop. The video is still in the works. But here you can find a video of an earlier workshop of Animal Factory Amplification at SchneidersLaden:

Video: Veith Von Tsotzhousn & Anton Filatov & VanTa – live @SUPERBOOTH22

For their SUPERBOOTH22 performance Veith Von Tsotzhousn and Anton Filatov invited video artist VanTa for some visual expansion of their sound. Veith Von Tsotzhousn has always been on the lookout for ways out of predictability. His music translates complexities into soundscapes by means of polyrhythms and polyphonies as a liberation from western corsets; field recordings, as well as recordings created in collaboration with classical musicians, constitute its foundation. Anton Filatov is an experimental Saxophonist and modular artist bringing additional ways of expression to the stage.

The three artists invite you to set sail on a musical journey through the mist into an unknown territory. Here, ambience is not an end in itself, but rather a genre of unpredictability; dark and impenetrable yet plentifully warm and witty.

Video: CLYSTRE – live @SUPERBOOTH22

Clystre is the alias of German musician Carsten Rochow, a former indie rock multi-instrumentalist turned synthesist/sound designer. He is playing a complex system of Eurorack Modular Synthesizer and a Buchla Music Easel. Drawing from an admiration of both east and west coast styles, Clystre combines elements of Music Concrète, Minimalism, Krautrock, Berliner Schule, Synth-Pop, IDM, Drone, Noise, Ambient and others to craft his unique sound. This ambitious approach to synth/modular music could easily yield a cacophony, but with Clystre, the approach feels intuitive, thoughtful, playful and highly gratifying. The process of creating music, sculpting sound, and shaping progressions with modular systems is not only a journey, but a relationship between man and machine.

Clystre has released a song called Arpichelago on Youtube to promote his collection of recordings and compositions. Arpichelago is driven by an elaborate arpeggio created with a Buchla Music Easel.

The live audio reactive 3d Visuals are made by MiDeRic – 499reality for all concerts in the Circus Tent. -> http://www.mideric.com/

Video: Schneider TM & “SPARK” – live @SUPERBOOTH22

Schneider TM played an improvised live set with the fascinating prototype of the electro-acoustic experimental guitar “SPARK” at this years SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail. This special guitar was developed together with the luthiers Kora Jünger and Frank Deimel from Deimel Guitarworks.

In addition to conventional magnetic and piezo pickups, some of which are installed in different positions in the body such as the headstock etc. for expanded sound possibilities, the guitar also has playable reverb springs, one of which is attached to the tremolo construction and can be tensioned. The different sound sources can be combined via a global selector switch and sent to an integrated electronic LesLee, which oscillates back and forth between the signals and is connected to CV In & Out sockets for integrating e.g. modular synthesizers via control voltage. The “SPARK” can not only be played acoustically, electrically and electronically, but as an electro-acoustic sound object it also offers possibilities for playing techniques that are not typical for guitars.

Schneider TM is the internationally reknown multidimensional music project of Dirk Dresselhaus which oscillates extensively between adventurous electronic pop-music and experimental, sometimes improvised freeform music, while occasionally bringing these and other opposing elements together.

ALBINOBROTHERS – live @SUPERBOOTH22 & SOOPERgrail

After three albums Tobias Werner has finished his Albinoblues-triology. For this reason he goes on tour with that material for the first time. The duo of drums (Ronny Wunderwald) and guitar (Tobias Werner) is on the road as ALBINOBROTHERS.

With much less electricity than the other concerts of the event, the two artists bring proper blues to the stage here and thus expand the already wide range of musical styles that could be experienced live at SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail.

Dave Smith & Marcus Ryle & Tom Oberheim – Talk @SUPERBOOTH22

It’s the real thing – Tom Oberheim said about the new Oberheim Synthesizer on the Superbooth stage – and this also is true about the three fine guests Dave Smith & Marcus Ryle & Tom Oberheim. Three people truly dedicated to synth design.

In this talk, the three look back at the beginnings of their work, the invention of MIDI, working with the first polyphonic patches in the 1970s, the legendary “page 2” of the OB-8 and bringing the sound of then to the present.

We were very fortunate to be able to host this talk just a few weeks before Dave Smith passed away. His presence not only gave the event an even greater international profile, but also and more importantly enriched it on a personal, human level. His open, friendly and joyous way of dealing with the people around him will be missed: Thank you so much, Dave, for taking the time to talk with us – Rest in Peace and Happiness.

Andreas Schneider also shared some of his memories about Dave and his visit:

Dear Dave, (dear Family and Friends of Dave),

It was a big pleasure for me and all of us to welcome You, Dave Smith on board again for SUPERBOOTH Berlin in 2022 just two weeks ago. Your personal presence gave it another visible and easy to understand international meaning as it did with your visit in 2016 already, thank you very much! The highlight for me personally and the final little dot of an I was the very relaxed last hour of your participation, sitting in front of the very outstanding booth of our friend Ritchie Hawtin together with my wife and me. We had another sake with Rich directly before he went on stage to perform for you and us and all the SOOPERguests around us, we  had a wonderful conversation about what we did and had there. Finally you decided to leave your probably very last international show in the best moment of it, I personally brought you tot he cab, still this was very emotional, but funny and nice at the same time. I saw you leaving and smelled that this was another of those moments that will never come back.

Leaving the venue, you also shared your very personal problems and the reason of your walking stick with me and – I could imagine and I hope – you left the party when it was at its best, as you did it on SuperBooth. I hope this was your way and the right one. Wishing you all the best wherever your good soul will be now. Thank you for sharing some time with us and for doing what you did.

Rest in Peace and Happiness.

Video: Beirut Synthesizer Center – Talk with Peter Kirn @SUPERBOOTH22

Founded in 2021 by Bana Haffar, Elyse Tabet, Ziad Moukarzel and Hany Manja, the Beirut Synthesizer Center is a collaborative educational project and community-based center for self-directed learning focused on the study of electronic sound generation.

In this conversation with Peter Kirn, the guests from Lebanon share the ideas and motivations behind the Beirut Synthesizer Center project.

In cooperation with Superbooth Berlin GmbH and Morphine Records, they also presented the work of the center during various events in Berlin in May 2022, including a concert at SUPERBOOTH22.

The project is supported by contract funds from the German Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut.

Summer, Sun and Synthesizers – next SUPERBOOTH23 announced

This is the offical Press Release by Superbooth Berlin:

SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail welcomed around 6000 trade visitors, day guests and over 170 international exhibitors at FEZ-Berlin. In the year of the 20th anniversary of the Superbooth, for the first time innovative guitar builders were represented in larger numbers and with their own exhibition space under the name SOOPERgrail.

The expanded concept of the largest trade event for electronic musical instruments in Europe has proven successful, and Superbooth Berlin GmbH has overcome the worst obstacles resulting from the Corona crisis. This clears the way for next year’s planning – the date is set:

SUPERBOOTH23 and SOOPERgrail #2 at FEZ-Berlin: May 11-13, 2023.

– with even more innovative instruments and music, concerts, workshops, presentations — indoors and outdoors –

“For the anniversary version of Superbooth, as it turned out after all obstacles and difficulties, we can really only be grateful to everyone and congratulate everyone who was able to be there. The delicate little flower called #SOOPERgrail also made a successful start and the international events – above all the presentation with Hainbach for the Goethe Institute Tokyo and the participation of Tom Oberheim and Dave Smith with their new instrument – were important factors of culture and economy alike. We are already excited to see what will develop from this next year!”

Andreas Schneider

The various areas of the anniversary edition each convinced with their very own atmosphere, which always meandered between music festival, nerd get-together and a group trip with friends. The basis for relaxed encounters, lively exchange and a good mood was provided by the extended event area in the park, the large number of exhibitors and the summery weather.

Live:

The stage program represents an enormous variety of musical variation. Early electronic instruments such as the Trautonium were on display. Hainbach presented how electronic music was made by artists like Stockhausen in the 1960s, and many concerts featured modular synthesizers, which can be seen as modern successors to the featured instruments. From the stages you could hear great live electronic music from ambient to techno, a lot of experimental and innovative works. Surprisingly for many guests, there was a performance by Richie Hawtin on the last day of the event.

The Modular Synthesizer Ensemble gave the mostly young participants their first stage experience with a composition they had previously developed together in a workshop lasting several hours.

Within the framework of SOOPERgrail, there were many outstanding concerts and workshops, with individual instruments presented. In addition to traditional crafts, the artists and exhibitors also showed possibilities that enable expanded artistic expression. With the presented technologies, external devices can be controlled and microtonal music can be played.

The main stage for diverse guitar music was located in the circus tent. There was, among other things, a blues concert by DobBroMan with spontaneous support from Thorsten Quaeschning of Tangerine Dream, the performance of Nagen und Kotzmann, who blurred the line between drone, ambient and free jazz, and Linalab, who brought along a drummer for her electronic post-rock and processed the sound of her electric guitar with a synthesizer.

Documentation:

The lecture-concerts (Gesprächskonzerte) recorded during the event are now available on Superbooth Berlin’s YouTube and Vimeo channels, and the recordings of the other concerts will be released in the coming weeks.

Lecture-concerts are a combination of concert and presentation, where new instruments are introduced in a concrete musical context. This year, legendary synthesizer manufacturer Oberheim made a comeback and presented a new instrument in this format that, like its predecessors, seems to have the potential to become a classic.

We would like to expressly thank all exhibitors, artists, media representatives, trade visitors and last but not least the numerous private visitors for their great support and the wonderful three days and are already looking forward to SUPERBOOTH23 and SOOPERgrail next year.

Save the date now: SUPERBOOTH23 and SOOPERgrail from May 11 to 13, 2023 at FEZ-Berlin!

A brief look back at SUPERBOOTH22 & SOOPERgrail

“What a ride! A BIG Thank You to everyone who came to SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail – all the exciting exhibitors, wonderful artists, guests, friends and family! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.”

The verdict by the official Superbooth Instagram channel

SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail are over for this year. The 20th anniversary edition headed even more into the direction of being a music festival where you can explore all the tools, instruments and effects that are used to make the music that you hear just a few meters away on one of the several stages that could be found all over the event.

The Superbooth events seem to be the perfect examples of how products for creative people should be presented. As a trade show, Superbooth helps bring the showcased instruments closer to potential users and lays the foundation for things to develop further. As a social event Superbooth is a place to build and maintain friendships with people that you wouldn’t meet in your daily life, it brings people from different backgrounds together to share visions and develop new ideas.

The stage program stood for all that, it was characterized by an enormous variety of musical explorations, from early electronic instruments like the Trautonium and Hainbachs presentation of how electronic music was made by artists like Stockhausen in the 1960’s, to experimental modular synthesizer and guitar shows that try to push boundaries, superb live techno, children with their first ever stage experience together with the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, an unexpected appearance of Richie Hawtin, playing open-air on the last day. The event truely celebrated the variety of musical visions, ideas, concepts and approaches.

The different areas of the anniversary edition all had their own atmosphere, but were always meandering between music festival, nerd meetup and a youth group trip with your friends.

Another event by HerrSchneider that will leave many people with long-lasting memories of community, friendship, and last but not least, lots of musical inspiration.

Oh and…yeah new synths and so. We’ll leave this topic to others for now. Why don’t you check out Bobeats video of his personal highlights of the show. And have a look at Sonicstate who – as always – have covered lots of exhibitors and their inventions. And surely there is more to find in the wide space of the interwebs we have seen a lot of familiar faces from the best YouTube channels for electronic musical instruments.

Video: Carolina Eyck – live Theremin concert @SUPERBOOTH21

The Carolina Eyck concert from SUPERBOOTH21 has just been released! Carolina Eyck’s concerts are always special, because she is one of the few who have mastered the extraordinary instrument called theremin. With her voice and one of the most difficult electronic instruments to master, she reaches unexpected sonic territories.

Carolina Eyck is a German-Sorbian musician and composer, largely recognized as the world’s leading theremin virtuoso. Eyck developed her own precise eight-finger-position playing technique by the age of 16 and published the first extensive theremin method book The Art of Playing the Theremin. Her method is now used by thereminists around the world and has revolutionized how the instrument is played. She has performed all around the world, collaborated with contemporary artists from a variety of genres, and has performed or recorded with rock legend Steve Vai, singer-songwriter Gotye, DJ Jeff Mills, guitarist Jim Moginie, Tangerine Dream, multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, and vocalist Theo Bleckmann, among others.

Video: Kitmun live @SUPERBOOTH21

On the opening day of SUPERBOOTH21, Kitmun delivered an excellent live set of handmade electronic music with their impressive modular synthesizers under difficult conditions in the rain.

Rising out of the Berlin modular scene, Kitmun has been patching and twiddling their way into the eardrums of audiences recently. With performances at the Oscillate parties, Sacred Ground Festival, and now Superbooth – the duo consisting of Stephane Lefrancois and Carlota Marques has been spreading their infectious sound further and further into the ether.

The embodiment of DIY synth culture, they have intricately tuned their systems for maximum aural and visual expression. Their sound ranges from ambient and afrobeat to jungle and techno, always with a strong focus on synthesis. They have also hosted workshops at the world-renowned SchneidersLaden, where they detail their methods and approach. With this passion to share and communicate methodology, they exemplify a true underground ethos and show that the means are just as important as the ends.

Thank you Kitmun for yet another wonderful live-modular set!

Video: Jessica Kert live at SUPERBOOTH21

Berlin-based electronic musician and techno producer Jessica Kert especially enjoys playing improvised live sets with modular synthesizers. A while ago she discovered the Buchla200e system for herself during the lockdown. At her day job at SchneidersLaden, the noble device was always available after work and so a deeper understanding of the instrument developed over many hours of experimentation.

After some time, the point was reached to bring what she had learned to the stage, which we are very happy about. Enjoy the full documentation of her concert below:

Stammgast Pyrolator @SUPERBOOTH22

Stammgast is what they say in German (regular guest) – Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator has been a guest at SUPERBOOTH19 in 2019 with Der Plan and an unforgettable concert in the Auditorium, last year he creatively turned the outdoor area between FEZ-Berlin and Bungalowdorf into a stage as Pyrolator and this year SUPERBOOTH22 welcomes him again – we’ll see where and when, but it is promised that he will be there!

On the first day on the SUPERBOOTH21 Pyrolator played a “mobile modular”. Starting with the desire not to miss out on live performances during the lockdown, he put together a small setup in a 90HP skiff that could be powered by a power bank. Together with a small battery-powered sound system, it could be quickly set up and used anywhere in the park. As we all know – 90HP won’t take you far, so the system grew to be 4x84HP and it is still mobile.

You don’t get the chance to see a concert of Neue Deutsche Welle pioneers Der Plan that often. So it was even nicer to experience them at SUPERBOOTH19 in the Auditorium.

Der Plan was formed in 1979 in Dusseldorf and therefore strongly influenced by Kraftwerk as well as the DIY attitude of Punk. After founding member Kai Horn left the project early on, Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator stepped in and made Der Plan’s music more approachable. Moritz R, Kurt Dahlke alias Pyrolator and Frank Fenstermacher formed Der Plan to be an experimental music group that created a minimalistic but catchy sound, which got them national attention. It is seen as one of the early and most influential pieces of Neue Deutsche Welle.

Be there when Pyrolator performs at SUPERBOOTH22! Secure your tickets HERE.

Video: Sacha Ketterlin – live @SUPERBOOTH21

With his energetic and emotional ambient set Sacha Ketterlin found the perfect sound to start the stage program for that day. For many years Sacha Ketterlin has been working on the perfect configuration of his modular synthesizer, which relies heavily on the sound of MacBeth modules. The modular system is complemented by a Micromac D, also from Macbeth, and the Easel Command from Buchla. Enjoy the recording of Sacha Ketterlins concert at SUPERBOOTH21.

Born in Switzerland and raised in France, he has been living in Berlin since 2008. Classically trained in piano, he is now known for his absorptive, richly textured electronic sounds created with modular synthesizers.

Strongly influenced by techno and Berlin rave culture, he went on to dive deeply in the electronic music scene, organizing techno parties and Ambisonic events with a focus on live performance. After spending more than ten years searching for emotionally poignant sounds with his modular synthesizer, he released his debut vinyl Ocean of Sound in 2019 on his own imprint Higher Resonance.

New spaces: beSOOPER at the Badesee

“We have revised our space concept for beSOOPER and discovered the Badesee (Bathing Lake), now there is even more air and space for sound and visions of new music.”

SUPERBOOTH Berlin

Parts of FEZ-Berlin are in the potential access of the city as emergency accommodation for refugees from Ukraine – which is of course appropriate and important. Against this background, it has been decided to develop further areas in the park grounds, to do without the use of the West Wing and to divide the Seebühne (Sea-side Stage) between two new locations. All artists announced for the Seebühne will be presented on the beach stage at the Badesee (Bathing Lake) and the new stage in the circus tent.

beSOOPER will thus be even bigger, with even more space and activities both outdoors and indoors: more than 150 booths with all kinds of electronic musical instruments and guitars of all known and unknown types, about twenty performances, concerts, presentations and workshops per day, including some late-night activities in the Bungalowdorf (Bungalow Village).

The daily cultural program will start at the latest with the workshop presentation of the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble at 1:30 pm and will continue outdoors at full intensity and volume until at least 10 pm.

Most of the booths and activities for guitar enthusiasts are concentrated on the upper floor of FEZ-Berlin, while the SOOPERgrail concerts will take place in the circus tent. Many of the countless synthesizer and modular manufacturers can be found and experienced in the now expanded tent village – as already very successfully realized in 2021.

The well-known and popular catering partners for food and drinks can be found at all outdoor locations.

In the foyer of the FEZ-Berlin there is the general info desk again, as well as the familiar ticket entrance for all visitors and artists, exhibitors and press partners. Guests arriving by public transport via the S-Bahn station Wuhlheide can get their wristband already at the bungalow village, upon presentation of their digital or printed ticket.

SUPERBOOTH22 // 12.-14. May 22:

  • One-day Ticket                 35 EUR, discounted 25 EUR (THU, FRI, SAT)
  • Three-day Ticket              90 EUR, discounted 70 EUR (THU, FRI & SAT)

New video: POLE – live @SUPERBOOTH21

One of the concert highlights of SUPERBOOTH21 was Pole on the Seaside Stage. Only few artists have shaped the sound of of modern experimental dub music as much as Pole, aka Stefan Betke. His work has always been deeply organic and inspired by walks in the forest and the intricate sonic environments of cities alike, his sound shifts and swerves through different mindscapes engrossing the listener in a warm and familiar place.

During this concert, he seemed to span a net, from early works to brand new ones. “Every Pole record connects to recordings that I’ve made before,” Betke says. This development now continues with his new album Tanzboden released once again in conjunction with Mute.

Thank you to the Miller-Zillmer Foundation that made this concert possible.

BeSOOPER – The SUPERBOOTH22 & SOOPERgrail Program

Under the common motto – BeSOOPER – SUPERBOOTH22 and the new SOOPERgrail bring together several thousand instrument makers, music and culture creators from all over the world in Berlin. For 3 days they will explain and discuss the future of music and music making at FEZ-Berlin. The event will create a meeting space that invites the exchange of
visions, ideas, sounds and stories.

The concert and cultural program starts every day around noon with Berlin students playing 12 modular synthesizers in the auditorium, it ends with a „Berliner Schule“ session in the foyer or a „Techno“ live set in the bungalow village before midnight. In between, there are up to twenty events and concerts daily at five venues in the spacious park area and FEZ-Berlin.
During the three days of SUPERBOOTH22 and the two days of SOOPERgrail, the at least 150 exhibitors of musical instruments are placed at three locations on the spacious grounds, also to make the sonic aesthetics of the products really tangible. The ticket system is simply structured, all tickets are valid for the whole day and all events of the fair.

Day 1

On the first day of the event, Mute Records founder Daniel Miller and Depeche Mode producer Gareth Jones will be performing on the Sea-Side Stage as Sunroof, as well as AtomTM 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.

In the auditorium, the Finnish keyboardist KEBU proofs that you can still make live electronic music with classical electronic keyboard instruments, some of which are decades old, even today. A talk with Peter Kirn and international guests is still in preparation for the evening.

Day 2

Friday the thirteenth is the first day of the guitar fair SOOPERgrail: Here it is also about visions that go far beyond ordinary remakes of American evergreens from Gibson to Fender. On the Guitar Stage at the Cinema, Matthias Grob tells his story from the development of the first guitar looper and its commercialization to today‘s hype, of which he as the „inventor“ unfortunately no longer benefits much. He shows his classic and builds a bridge to other colleagues with similar experiences.

For the upcoming generation, the daily Tapeloop workshops are a good introduction to this topic. Other guitarists as well as innovative exhibitors, also with guitars in the area between electronics and stringed instruments, make the fair a full-day program for interested and curious people.

The full program also runs on the other stages on 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.

Day 3

On Saturday, the workshops are often booked up the fastest, many musicians come with their children to enjoy the concerts and events and to learn something: In the guitar section, Sukandar Kartadinata explains his instrument with adjustable frets – the liberation from the twelve-tone scale. Schneider TM, among others, will be playing on the Guitar Stage. 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.

All details regarding other concerts, (DIY) workshops, performances and events can be found on Superbooth.com and Soopergrail.com in the coming days.

And the Superbooth Berlin Team is announcing the following statement concerning the war in Ukraine:

“The war of aggression on Ukraine leaves us speechless. We sympathize and stand in solidarity with the suffering and struggling people in Ukraine and with the refugees who are being forced to leave their homes.
Our donation goes to CADUS e.V. which helps war refugees in Ukraine and worldwide. We would like to thank all those who do the same, if possible!”

Video: Maarten Vos – live at SUPERBOOTH21

The Dutch artist Maarten Vos played an incomparable set on the Seaside-Stage at SUPERBOOTH21. With the otherworldly Haken Continuum, a Buchla synthesizer and a Eurorack Modular System he took the audience a sonic journey.

Known as much for his outlier, exploratory approach to the cello as his work with modular synthesizers, he’s constantly exploring the boundaries of what can be done with certain instruments. His work is influenced by numerous collaborations with artists like Julianna Barwick, Stimming, Colin Benders and by excursions into other art forms, where he composed music for various disciplines, collaborated with fashion designers, visual artists and scored music for film.

Video: Ain TheMachine perfoming live @SUPERBOOTH21

The Berlin-based musician, composer and music producer Ain The Machine makes live electronic music in a slightly different way – entertaining, engaging and danceable, first and foremost. During his concert he simply uses his body, his voice and random objects to create basslines, pads and melodies.

For his SUPERBOOTH21 performance he even included the audience into his compositions by inviting them to use a microphone in front of the stage.



Because his particular technique is so worth seeing and hearing, he has already presented his vision at 4 TEDx Talks in different countries. His journey as a musician, composer and music producer has earned him a nomination for a Latin Grammy. But he’s also been playing out on Berlin stages, for example at Sisyphos, Rummels Bucht and of course at SUPERBOOTH21 on the Seaside Stage.

BE SOOPER – SUPERBOOTH22 & SOOPERgrail tickets now available!

BE SOOPER – electric get to gathering: 12.-14. May at FEZ-Berlin

The international trade fair for electronic musical instruments will take place in spring again; the presale for SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail tickets starts today! Get them here.

After the Corona troubles, SUPERBOOTH22 shows itself clearly developed for the anniversary event. At the trade fair with festival character there will be deep insights into the professional world of electronic music and its instruments, their application and development, as well as workshops for students and young people.

Over three full days SUPERBOOTH22 presents itself in a new scale and with a special atmosphere. The area surrounding the FEZ-Berlin offers outdoor exhibition tents, bungalows, concert and presentation stages in the spacious park area. So far, 150 exhibitors showcase electronic music instruments and everything else needed for handmade and electronic music in the main building and around it. For the first time, there will also be SOOPERgrail as an independent trade fair dedicated to the art of guitar building.

The founder HerrSchneider on this:

„Last September’s SUPERBOOTH21 was described by all participants as the best yet, despite a lower number of visitors. We want to reflect on this again for our anniversary and would like to surpass it. The possible expansion to a trade fair for other (musical) instruments at the Berlin location holds great potential: Techno and electronic music continue to be our basis, but the respectful mixing with the craft of other professions opens many new doors.“

Some manufacturers have already demonstrated last year how the creative exploration of the border areas between guitars and complex electronic applications can open up new horizons. The guitar fair SOOPERgrail has its own stage for concerts and presentations inside, offers its guests access to the shared lake stage along with a catering area on the lawn and free access to other events in the park area. Guests of SUPERBOOTH22 are also and explicitly welcome at SOOPERgrail. Of course, only the SUPERBOOTH22 ticket is valid for the so far much larger exhibition area of SUPERBOOTH22.

The presale for SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail starts online today. Due to the pandemic, the ticket contingents remain limited for the time being, all tickets are valid for the respective trade fair areas and event days without restrictions from 10 am to 7 pm as well as for the evening program. For simplification, any type of special and trade visitor tickets have been omitted.

Bloody Mary live at SUPERBOOTH21

Enjoy this energetic live concert of Bloody Mary at SUPERBOOTH21! With a 707 and the sound of a 303 – you can’t go wrong. This wonderful set made clear, why she was making her live-debut in the infamous basement of Tresor Berlin. We were lucky enough to have Bloody Mary on our Seaside Stage on her birthday!

Bloody Mary encompasses all aspects of an established electronic musician: she’s a vinyl DJ, she’s a producer, she performs live, and she’s been running the label Dame-Music since 2010. The French-born, Berlin-based artist likes to be kept busy. When she’s not caught up running between airport gates, she’s usually locked away in her hardware-heavy studio, continuously mastering her art as a producer. She has released countless records on Dame-Music over the past 10 years and on many other labels since.


SchneidersLaden presents SUPERBOOTH22

Schneider TM & TB Arthur – live @SUPERBOOTH21

Dirk and Jay didn’t have their first appearance on a Superbooth stage, but this concert was the first one they performed on Deimel Firestar LesLee® Synchronizer guitars. These handmade guitars were being premiered in public for the first time at SUPERBOOTH21. The newly developed custom guitars made by Deimel Guitarworks allow for connectivity and interactivity via CV in/out on modular synths.

The LesLee guitar makes it possible to either send or receive a waveform or sending out a CV signal. It is even possible to do sync recording by using a CV to Midi generator, or to be in sync with video signals for performing artists – something that hasn’t been used in this performance, but opens up even more possibilities.

Schneider TM & TB Arthur brought modular synthesizers and guitar pedal effect boxes along with the aforementioned Deimel guitars to create sounds in unusual ways and explore new sonic territories.

Enjoy their unique performance merging two worlds of electronic sound that can also be seen as a preview to what the upcoming SOOPERgrail guitar show will be about.

See you at SUPERBOOTH22 and SOOPERgrail!

SchneidersLaden presents SUPERBOOTH22

Yann Tiersen – live @SUPERBOOTH21

A melody says more than a thousand words – and the melodies coming from the fingers of Yann Tiersen even more so. He is a true virtuoso and master of his craft, who was also able to fascinate the audience at SUPERBOOTH21 with his energetic sound collages – a perfect end to the first day of the event.

Yann collaborates with the label Mute Records, on which he has been developing his experiments since 2010. His latest album Kerber was released just before SUPERBOOTH21 and shows how Yann uses piano sketches as a source of inspiration for electronic module synthesis. The combination of these two worlds makes the album a unique creative achievement, where the electronic instruments are overlaid and driven by the acoustic elements. With this album in mind and the fact that he has been a regular guest at SchneidersLaden for quite some time, Yann was the perfect musician for a concert at Superbooth.

The Yann Tiersen concert was presented by the Miller-Zillmer Foundation.
