This was SUPERBOOTH21 – See you at SUPERBOOTH22

We all had to wait a long time for SUPERBOOTH21, now the event is over and it was a complete success. The circumstances that forced the organizers to completely rethink have made this year’s SUPERBOOTH21 better. The exhibitors have used the last months to develop many exciting novelties. The spacious area, the airier rooms and the resulting much more relaxed atmosphere, gave the exhibitors and visitors more opportunity to engage in conversation and to test and experience the exhibited instruments in a meaningful way.

Many participants reported that the quality of the discussions among each other was once again better than in previous years. This was made possible by the 126 exhibitors present this year, whom the organizers would like to thank once again. Another important element in this year’s concept was the cooperation with the Miller-Zillmer Foundation, to whom the organizers would also like to express their sincere thanks. The Miller-Zillmer Foundation made it possible to bring the wonderful artists Yann Tiersen, hackedepicciotto, JakoJako, Pole and the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble to the stage.

Andre Kaufmann: “Our little adventure trip is over for this year – 4 days with quite a few moments of joy, passion and excitement. We hope everyone had a great time meeting colleagues, friends and making many new contacts. It was a very memorable event, maybe the special circumstances made us even more connected.”

The start was perhaps a bit bumpy, with decent rain from Wednesday afternoon, but this was compensated for in the following days by the mild late summer with some sunshine hours and pleasant temperatures. The bungalow village had a wonderful homely atmosphere, in the evenings the Tresorbühne spread festival and club feeling and the famous Japanese pancakes and vegan gyros were again the right basis for long days and short nights.

The success of the newly designed event prompted Andreas Schneider to announce in his closing words after the last concert on the seaside stage on Saturday evening that he intends to keep this concept for SUPERBOOTH22. So you can look forward to another Superbooth that manages to be exciting and relaxed at the same time. One of the best news remains with regards to the first September edition of Superbooth that SUPERBOOTH22 is only 8 months away!

The preparations for SUPERBOOTH22 are already about to begin. The next edition of Superbooth will then take place at FEZ-Berlin from May 12-14, 2022, this time in conjunction with sooperGRAIL, which is dedicated to the art of guitar building.

For the perfect review of concerts and interviews with guests like Jean-Michel Jarre and T.Raumschmiere, talk concerts with Metasonix, Modor, UDO Audio, Joranalogue, Erica Synths, Meng-Qi and many more, there are plenty of videos on the official Superbooth Vimeo and YouTube accounts, as well as on the Superbooth homepage.

  • SUPERBOOTH22 12. – 14. Mai 2022

Here is one fine example of a Gesprächskonzert:

sooperRadio today 5-7 pm!

Its radio time again! Two weeks after SUPERBOOTH21 it is time for a look back! During the broadcast today the core of the radio and Superbooth team meet for a cheerful wrap-up. There are quite a few anecdotes, highlights and musical moments to be discussed. The two hours will not be enough to cover everything, but we are still looking forward to it!

The sooperRADIO is a still young program from the organizing team of Superbooth and is broadcasted to radios in Berlin and Potsdam by friendly invitation as part of the program of Radio Woltersdorf. If you are not in the broadcast area you can still listen to the show via the stream. Please note that the show will be mostly in German language.

u-he – Wiretap Gesprächskonzert (lecture concert) @SUPERBOOTH21

For this Gesprächskonzert Urs Heckmann, founder of Berlin based company u-he, teamed up with Sebastian Hübert for their performance and presentation at Fuchsbau during SUPERBOOTH21. The former one-man show u-he is now a tightly knit team of employees, active associates and 3rd-party contractors – with ambitious plans.

Famous for very accurate and widely appreciated software synthesizers and effects, u-he showed their first eurorack module at a previous edition of Superbooth – the CVilisation. At SUPERBOOTH21 it was time for another announcement. They took the chance to present their latest development with a Gesprächskonzert, of which you can find the video documentation below. The module is named Wiretap and it played a major role in creating rhythm during their performance.

Wiretap is a double gate extractor for v/oct signals. It will generate a gate when the voltage goes high, when it goes low, when it’s steady, when it moves, when it’s higher than the other one and when it’s lower. And you can set the gate length and get additional envelope outputs.


SchneidersLaden presents SUPERBOOTH21

Joranalogue Gesprächskonzert (lecture concert) @SUPERBOOTH21

The Belgium Eurorack synth maker Joranalogue presented not one, but three new modules at SUPERBOOTH21: Orbit 3, Enhance 2 and Step 8.

During their Gesprächskonzert at Fuchsbau they not only talked about these new modules, but Alter Fritz also performed a live session with a Joranalogue based Eurorack system.

Driven by an unrelenting passion for analogue circuits, Joranalogue Audio Design offers an expanding series of high-quality Eurorack music synthesizer modules. They’re continually introducing new approaches and techniques to the Eurorack platform, making waves in the waters of analogue synthesis. All products are designed and made in Belgium, guided by experiences in both modern hardware engineering and vintage synthesizer servicing.

This year, the Joranalogue crew returns to Berlin to present its latest developments. Join designer Joran van Gremberghe and artist Frits Jacobs (Alter Fritz) for a Gesprächskonzert of these high quality black and silver modules!

UDO Audio – Super 6 Desktop @SUPERBOOTH21

UDO Audio brought the world one of the most interesting poly-synths of the recent years. Very rarely a company achieves such a success with their first ever product – but the Super 6 made it. Now UDO Audio showed the desktop version of this incredible synth. Great looks, ergonomics and the sound of the original Super 6 make this machine a very interesting option for many musicians and studios on the hunt for a capable poly-synth. UDO Audio had their booth at the wonderful Bungalowdorf during SUPERBOOTH21 and took the chance to present their new synthesizer in a Gesprächskonzert (lecture concert) at Fuchbau.

In this video George gives a little insight into the development of the company in general and his view on the past two years, since he presented the Super 6 to the world at SUPERBOOTH19.

Four sooper days of SUPERBOOTH21

We all had to wait a long time for SUPERBOOTH21, now the event is over and was a complete success. The circumstances that forced the organizers to completely rethink the event have developed it for the better. The spacious area, the airier rooms and the resulting much more relaxed atmosphere, gave exhibitors and visitors more opportunity to engage in conversation and to test and experience the exhibited products in a meaningful way. It was heard from many participants that the quality of the discussions was even better than in previous years. So also Andreas Schneider, in his closing words after the last concert on the seaside stage, from Pole, announced on Saturday evening that he wants to stick to this concept for SUPERBOOTH22 in May 2022. So we can all look forward to another Superbooth that manages to be exciting and relaxed at the same time.

Even if the start, with decent rain on Wednesday afternoon, was still a bit bumpy, the many hours of sunshine and the mild weather of the next days fulfilled all expectations. The bungalow village had a wonderful family atmosphere, the Tresor stage spread festival and club feeling in the evenings and the well-known Japanese pancakes and the vegan Gyros provided the right basis for long days and short nights. Looking ahead to the first September edition of Superbooth, one of the best news remains that the next Superbooth is only 8 months away!

For the perfect throwback to concerts and interviews with guests like Jean-Michel Jarre, Tom Oberheim, Ken MacBeth, T.Raumschmiere, lecture concerts with Metasonix, Modor, L-1, Meng-Qi and many more you can find all four SUPERBOOTH21 days with their live-stream here:

DAY 1

DAY 2

DAY 3

DAY 4

A big THANK YOU to all involved, all exhibitors, guests, artists, caterers and the Superbooth team. It was a special event with some highlights not seen before, like the SOOPERradio or the spontaneous jam session by Charles Matuschewski and Gaz Williams on Saturday morning!

This is the Schneidersladen Backstage Tour

For the early birds amongst you, SchneidersBüro‘s first employee Penko will give two more Schneidersladen Backstage Tours on Thursday and Friday morning starting at 10:30 am at the Schneidersladen Showroom.

Penko will guide you through the history and self-perception of the Laden and Andreas Schneider as well as through the recent facilities reaching from the personal Synthmuseum of Andreas Schneider, the Altherrensalon with DADA Machines, the repair, logistics, and offices and will finally speak about the plans and perspectives of Schneiderladen.

On the way there, you will meet all the lovely people answering your questions, repairing your synths, and shipping everything to your home.

You will also have a peak in the windows of our friends and neighbors Verbos Electronics and E-RM and learn more about the synergetic energies that keep Schneidersladen, Alex4, and the Superbooth an active and central hub for everyone with an affinity for Synthesizers. And who knows what these insights will inspire you to do. Book your tour and find out.

SUPERBOOTH21 starting tomorrow – this is important to know

We are all very excited about the start of SUPERBOOTH21 – tomorrow it finally starts! Holding a trade fair and festival under the given circumstances requires a little more planning and consideration for each other. To make the event as safe as currently possible, the organizers have developed a consistent hygiene concept – but it also requires responsible interaction with each other.


There will be a Covid-19 test center in front of the FEZ-Berlin where all attendees can get tested for free. Those who can be tested before departure, perhaps in the hotel or on the way, should do so in order to keep waiting times on site to a minimum.
The status check, whether someone is vaccinated, recovered or tested negative, will then be checked at the main entrance. Because this can take longer, this procedure starts at 9 am already. Because the exhibition doesn’t start until 10 am, there will be an opportunity to get a good coffee from Johanna and a chance to listen to the morning improvisation on the seaside stage by Charles Matuschewski.


And then it’s on! From 10am, depending on which ticket you’ve chosen, you can explore the indoor or outdoor exhibitors – there have been some very interesting announcements in advance. Throughout the day there will be concerts and workshops and in the evening the Talks.

HerrSchneider has summarized the ideas for the evening events in the auditorium here:

We will have some main themes and topics during the evening talks, the first one is – Education! This is where the Miller-Zillmer Foundation helps us to realize Gammons daily workshops with a full school class. In return the Foundation has been invited to celebrate their second anniversary during SUPERBOOTH21 with all their founders on Wednesday. Second day, second theme is Europe with Jean-Michel Jarre and guests. The third one is about qualities in different ways, Three-Year-Warranty does not help against electronic waste … looking back into the past, Moog, EMS, looking forward into the future with all the units of nowadays to recycle in 30 years? Gareth Jones on Stage for this. The fourth day there will be Atom TM who has arranged his life around flying forwards backwards to Chile to realize his presence as an artist on stages over in Europe. How to go ahead with this? And there will be virtual Gesprächskonzerte with guys in Belarus, Hawaii, Vietnam, China, India, Amerika and elsehwere… the vision for our tradeshow in the future?

SchneidersLaden Backstage Tour – SUPERBOOTH21

SUPERBOOTH21 starts next week! As every year, there are the many exhibitors, concerts and workshops to experience during the event, but this time also a special event in Berlin Kreuzberg: The SchneidersLaden Backstage Tour!

For the exclusive SchneidersLaden Backstage Tour HerrSchneider asked one of his first employees to lead you through the showrooms, workshop, warehouse and two neighboring production facilities of eurorack and other music hardware. So, here in the middle of Berlin Kreuzberg, not only synthesizers are sold to all over the world, but also produced and repaired. If you’re interested in how this came about and how it’s done nowadays, book a SchneidersLaden tour as part of your SUPERBOOTH21 experience.

The SchneidersLaden team will also be on site in person at SUPERBOOTH21, so the opening hours of SchneidersLaden are limited to 10 am – 1 pm. Pick-ups at Ritterstraße are possible until 4pm.

SUPERBOOTH21 – the program and the special event tickets

Many national and international exhibitors and their innovative synthesizers and effect devices attract thousands of music makers to FEZ-Berlin every year. Equally attractive are the numerous concerts and special events. These include many workshops that invite you to join in, the SchneidersLaden Tour and the comfortable arrival by boat shuttle from Berlin Mitte.

Stage program: This year, SUPERBOOTH21 will feature four stages. In addition to the auditorium and the seaside stage, two new venues will be added: the Finnhütten and the Fuchsbau. In the auditorium, there will be discussion concerts and talks – with Jean-Michel Jarre, Reinhold Heil, Atom TM and T.Raumschmiere among others. Early Wednesday evening, the Miller-Zillmer-Foundation will present itself to invited guests in the auditorium, where it will celebrate its two-year anniversary. This year the Miller-Zillmer-Foundation makes possible the workshop series with Gammon and his Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, as well as – in cooperation with Mute Artists Ltd. – the headlining concerts on the seaside stage every evening: Yann Tiersen, hackedepicciotto, JakoJako and Pole.

The past 18 months have left room for many artists to go into the studio and write new music. SUPERBOOTH21 is one of the first opportunities to bring the results of these processes on stage and so there are some premieres to see. Yann Tiersen (Mute, release date: August 27, 2021) presents his new album “Kerber”. Also from hackedepicciotto (Mute), st.raumen (release date: 30. August 2021) and Pole (Mute) there is something new to hear.

The seaside stage will also feature Maarten Vos, Bloody Mary, Carolina Eyck, Kitmun and Ain TheMachine X SBNH, among others. The stage at the Finnhütten will be hosted by the legendary Tresor. For the 30th anniversary of the Berlin club and label, there will be concerts every night at 8:30 p.m. by e.g. Z.I.P.P.O, Carlota and Artik.

The ever-popular talk concerts will mainly take place at the Fuchsbau. On this new stage, SOMA Laboratory, Verbos Electronics, Haken Audio, Polyend, U-HE, Joranalogue and Bitwig, among others, present their products. In addition, you can also get involved yourself at the Fuchsbau and contribute to the musical background of the event at the Modular Carousel.

Workshops & DIY: The various DIY workshops will take place in the cozy ambience of the DIY tent at the Fuchsbau. Workshops offered are from Befaco, Leaf Audio, Making Sound Machines, Touellskouarn and Shakmat Modular, among others. Due to the severe limitation of places, tickets for the DIY workshops should be booked early. Other workshops include the Tapeloop Workshop on September 18 (for up to 5 participants), the Kreativ Klangsafari in cooperation with the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, and of course Gammon’s Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, who will once again be working on a daily performance with students and performing it at 1:30pm.

Tickets for many workshops can already be booked online and can be found here.

Livestream & virtual talk concerts: Those who are unable to attend SUPERBOOTH21 in person can look forward to the daily livestream. Here, the highlights of the various stages will be shown in a three-hour program. This also includes the virtual talk concerts, which offer exhibitors who cannot come to SUPERBOOTH21 the unique opportunity to present themselves to the audience simultaneously online and on site – live on the screen in the auditorium. Among other things, the talk concerts by and with Noise Engineering and Animal Factory Amplification will be presented here.

Boat shuttle: The boat shuttle departs daily from the old historic harbor in Berlin Mitte in the direction of FEZ-Berlin. The landing stage can be found at Mellowpark. From here there are precise signs to find the right way to FEZ-Berlin. Tickets for the boat shuttle are available now and are very limited. It is advisable to be quick! Here you can get the tickets.

SchneidersLaden Tour: The tour offers a behind-the-scenes look at Germany’s most important synthesizer store – SchneidersLaden. For this tour Andreas Schneider has asked one of his first employees to tell interested customers about the history of SchneidersLaden, SchneidersBuero and Superbooth – and to provide insights into the current showrooms and behind the scenes of SchneidersLaden in Berlin Kreuzberg.

What’s left to say? Stay healthy everyone and get vaccinated so we can spend a wonderful SUPERBOOTH21 together in September!

And: Day tickets for SUPERBOOTH21 are currently still available for all time periods on superbooth.com and can be combined at will with the special event tickets for workshops, boat shuttle and the exclusive tour through SchneidersLaden.

Tickets for DIY workshops are only valid in combination with any day ticket for SUPERBOOTH21. All special event tickets are strictly limited and can only be booked in advance of the event.

All tickets are available exclusively via pre-sale on superbooth.com – there will be no box office to ensure a contactless transaction.

Please note that access to the exhibition grounds will only be granted with a daily negative rapid test, complete approved vaccination or convalescent status.

SOOPERgrail: 6-8 of MAY 2022

Whatever the winter brings, life goes on and so exciting and new trade fairs are being planned in Berlin for the coming year: From May 6th to 8th, 2022, the FEZ Berlin will finally and for the first time host SOOPERgrail22, a trade fair and exhibition for European and international guitar builders. SOOPERgrail22 sets an example for traditional craftsmanship and the innovative power of small and smallest manufacturers. All this is presented incombination with a concert program, workshops, product demonstrations and talks at FEZ Berlin and the surrounding park.


The many smaller rooms and individual areas of the exhibition grounds also allow for relaxed testing of the exhibited instruments directly at the stands of the exhibitors and in the natural acoustics between the trees in the outdoor area. A relaxed and communicative atmosphere is created through the selection and placement of the exhibitors – a concept that has proven itself for years at Superbooth Berlin GmbH events.


Already this year SUPERBOOTH21, as a trade fair and festival for electronic musical instruments from 15th – 18th September integrates a guitar area with selected guitar builders from the region. This way the organizers show how both fields can also symbiotically interact.


„We warmly invite exhibitors interested in SOOPERgrail22 to get in contact now to introduce themselves to us. Visitors are also welcome to get an idea of our event concept at SUPERBOOTH21 in September. We are looking forward to good conversations and new faces.“

HerrSchneider


Those who are interested in exhibiting at SOOPERgrail22, please apply now
without obligation for a booth space and a good spot for next year. All others please mark the date or sign up for the newsletter. See you in September!


SUPERBOOTH21: 15. – 18. September 2021
SOOPERgrail22: 6. – 8. May 2022

SUPERBOOTH21 – TICKET SALES BEGIN ON MONDAY

This Monday – The presale for SUPERBOOTH21 starts! On June 14, a first limited contingent of day tickets will go on sale – the validity of the tickets is linked to a negative Covid-19 test, a complete vaccination or a proven recovery at the time of the event.

Tickets for the special events will go on sale starting July 15, including the DIY workshops, Gesprächskonzerte (lecture concerts) and boat shuttle. These tickets are only valid in conjunction with any day ticket. Then in August there will be another limited contingent of day tickets, of course at the same price.

Due to the official requirements, all ticket contingents are of course limited. All one-day tickets allow all-day access to the outdoor areas. In order to be able to guarantee the required distances between visitors, access to the indoor area of the FEZ Berlin will take place in a two-shift system, either in the morning or in the afternoon. There will be fewer booths inside than during past events – a total of about 150 international exhibitors can be expected.

This year, the fairground offers a significantly expanded outdoor area, with additional tents in the forest, the Hüttendorf, the Fuchsbau, installations and new stages at the playground and Finnhütten. This turns a visit to SUPERBOOTH21 into a small adventure tour that not only sets new accents acoustically, but also as a hybrid between trade fair and festival.
The indoor area offers the advantage of largely non-obstructed architecture
for the first time, because the foyer and the corridors remain free of exhibition stands. Visitors to SUPERBOOTH21 will be guided through the wide corridors of FEZ Berlin by a safe one-way system. In combination with the large outdoor area, this enables a safe event under current conditions.

Thursday sooperRADIO #3 with Andreas Schneider

It’s already time for the third episode of sooperRADIO! The radio show of the Superbooth Berlin team goes into its third broadcast on Thursday at 5pm. This time host Andre Kaufmann will talk with Andreas Schneider about everything related to synthesizers and of course about this year’s SUPERBBOTH21! Probably they will talk in German most of the time, keep that in mind, but anyway -> tune in!

You can listen to the show on 88.4 MHz in Berlin, 90.7 MHz in Potsdam or via the Livestream at Pi Radio.

If you have missed the first two episodes, you can find them here.

SUPERBOOTH interviewed

Recently Cornelius Wildner & Erka Shalari reached out to Berlin to interview Andreas Schneider and Andre Kaufmann as heads of Superbooth for “LES NOUVEAUX RICHES” – an art and culture magazine based over in Vienna. Talking about how it all came to live the interview rolls out the historic back ground of the event which is certainly more than just a fair for traders and draws a fine lined picture of the current situation.
Read it all here:

sooperRADIO #2 going live 5pm this Thursday

The Superbooth team is back with a new episode of their sooperRADIO show, after an eight-week wait. It is and remains electronic, with talks about modular systhesizers, a technical look at reverb simulation and two very likable studio guests: JakoJako and Sam Barker, with their very own approaches to making music – which we of course want to listen to again.

Plus two news about the synthesizer fair, with Mareen and André in the studio. They’ll let you know about the latest developments in the planning of this years Superbooth show – September 15-18th.

Via this link you can find the first episode, in case you missed it, or want to listen again – sooperRADIO episode 1.

And here is the direct link to the radio show for Thursday – Radio Woltersdorf.

New date for SUPERBOOTH21

The decision has been made. The new date for the Safety First Edition of SUPERBOOTH21 is set for this summer, from September 15 to 18, 2021.

“Even the greatest optimists must slowly acknowledge that the world will not be ready for larger, international gatherings in nine weeks now. That’s why we’ve decided to move SUPERBOOTH21 to September.”

HerrSchneider

But if in the summer, then with really much outside! The organizers of the trade fair do not want to miss out on the opportunities offered by moving the event to the warm season. Thus, additional places in the outdoor area of the FEZ Berlin were included in the planning of the event.

At the new locations, Fuchsbau, Hüttendorf and the small forest behind the seaside stage, there will be outdoor exhibitors for the first time. All stations are connected by short walks and each offer a varied program of concerts and presentations on smaller stages, so that you don’t have to miss the usual SUPERBOOTH festival feeling.

The open-air concept is intended to harmonize the usual relaxed atmosphere with the necessary safety measures in terms of distance and fresh air. For this purpose, half of the event space will be relocated to the spacious outdoor area. The exhibition areas inside the building will be reduced and thinned out in order to maintain the spatial distance between the participants and to avoid clusters of guests. Like the exhibition space, the guests will also be divided: For four hours each, in two groups of 500 people. This results in a moderate flow of visitors, who can experience the usual diverse selection of exhibitors in the reduced indoor area and then spend the rest of the day in the outdoor area, alternating with the second group.

In total, there are already several dozen confirmations from exhibitors who want to make their way to Berlin in September. Due to expected travel restrictions and existing planning obstacles, larger manufacturing teams directly postponed their participation to 2022. Likewise, it will not be possible for many overseas exhibitors to come to Berlin as early as the end of the summer. These will be offered alternative options for digital participation in the “Safety First Edition”.

Ticket pre-sales will not start before May, as the current development of the health situation will of course continue to be monitored. The actual realization of the event is directly linked to the start of ticket sales in order to avoid costly refund processes.

SOOPERgrail

The first edition of the new fair for the celebration of the art of guitar building will take place next year. Then numerous exhibitors will present instruments from the acoustic and electric range, for testing, experiencing and discussing.

The focus will be on the practical use of the presented instruments, the communicative get-together and the inspiring exchange between users and passionate manufacturers.

sooperRADIO

The first radio show of the Superbooth team from Feb. 11 is archived for listening on the new homepage sooperRADIO.com. Studio guest Thomas Kircher – from SchneidersLaden – explains how to work with a modular synthesizer and Sacha Ketterlin answers questions about his production techniques. Andreas Schneider talks about his motivation to host SUPEBROOBTH21 and SOOPERgrail.

The next sooperRADIO is dated 08. April 2021.

SUPERBOOTH pandemic fit (video)

Superbooth Berlin was one of the first teams that organized a virtual meeting on the web during the pandemic: The inventors of Berlin based „SUPERBOOTH“ synth show presented a „home edition“ in April 2020 already.

In this video Andre Kaufmann and Andreas Schneider (CEOs of Superbooth Berlin) sat down in SchneidersLaden to comment on their impressions of the latest and by far biggest virtual show – this years NAMM. Hear about their vision for a tradeshow in 2021 and their ideas for Superbooth that is supposed to happen in May.

While the original live stream didn’t get through to the NAMM website for some technical reasons, this is the spontaneous and improvised version of the planned event.

For NAMMs “Believe TV” Superbooth also made a nice video piece of about 30 minutes introducing a part of our community with three artists using modulars Sasha Ketterlin (FR), JakoJako (DE), Gammon (AT).

The full video called “Berlin, Vienna, Paris calling!” is still available on the NAMM site (registration needed) for a little while (before set public on media).

Apart from that our exhibiting friends, brands and partners offered more than ten more videos and movies around their products and visions, that you can find on the virtual stand, still public (for free) here.

SOOPERtalk tonight at NAMM

SOOPERGrail & SUPERBOOTH21

The new year brings us the certainty that nothing is certain. It remains difficult to predict how the pandemic will develop. For this reason, the SOOPERGrail guitar trade fair and exhibition will not celebrate its premiere in April 2021.

Live tonight from 11pm:

As part of a virtual version of the American trade show NAMM tonight, Andre Kaufmann and Andreas Schneider, as organizers of SUPERBOOTH21 and SOOPERGrail, introduce themselves to the mostly American audience and answer questions in the livestream.

Join here.

Under the given circumstances, the planning of the new fair is more complex than that of the established SUPERBOOTH21, and the organizers are also taking into account the cautious booking behavior of guitar builders and partners from the surrounding European countries. Andreas Schneider comments:

“It is with a heavy heart that we postpone our premiere for the World of Guitarists, probably until late summer. SUPERBOOTH21 in May still remains our goal and is in active preparation. If it is possible and justifiable, we will be hosting the event. The booking status for this year, with mainly European exhibitors, is already satisfactory. Any cancellations that are still expected will be quickly filled by new participants. For this, we would already like to expressly thank the established and new exhibitors for their constructive cooperation.”

The robust concept of SUPERBOOTH21, as Safety First Edition at FEZ Berlin, with about 120 exhibitors, three stages and the spacious area around it, was adapted to the changing conditions over months. With this concept and a hoped-for improvement of the permission and the hygiene situation in Germany, the organizers can make a safe realization of SUPERBOOTH21 possible.

The planning includes, in addition to the development of large areas in the outdoor area and booking of new areas in the FEZ, also the semi-virtual integration of presentations of selected areas of the event via livestream. This will also include a daily talk concert by a selected manufacturer from overseas – on a projection screen in front of an audience.

Andreas Schneider pleads for a pragmatic handling of the extraordinary situation and in case of a postponement of both events:

“If a cancellation of the event in May is unavoidable, the Board has decided to take an alternative date for SUPERBOOTH21 in the summer. For this purpose, we will be happy to welcome all the exhibitors already booked, as well as some of the corresponding artists of SOOPERGrail, as our guests at SUPERBOOTH21. This can then be seen as a first step of synergy between these two worlds, for which we are personally enthusiastic.”

Despite all the uncertainty, one thing remains certain: Andreas Schneider and his team will remain busy. With this in mind, they would like to point out another date:

  • SOOPERRadio: For the first time SOOPERRadio will be broadcast on the terrestrial frequency 88.4 in Berlin and Potsdam for 2 hours on 11.2.2021 from 5 pm. Of course, it is the subject SUPERBOOTH21, but also about the music and its instruments. Andre Kaufmann and Mareen Nagel, who is responsible for booking the artists for SUPERBOOTH21, will moderate.

Huettendorf of SUPERBOOTH21 fully booked

Andreas Schneider today announced that the special exhibition area “Huettendorf” for SUPERBOOTH21 is already fully booked. The small enclave in the park around FEZ Berlin will host an interesting community including Doepfer, E-RM, Vermona and more. This makes this part of the exhibition an attractive goal for all visitors of next years synthesizer related spring-time highlight.


HerrSchneider: “So our idea to let you have a smart walk in the park while checking out all news and products for electronic musicians has made a big step further to become concrete.”

The video was already created more than a year ago and – for obvious reasons – is not addressing the hygiene concept and the plan to use the Huettendorf as an exhibition and concert area. Nevertheless, the video gives a brief overview about the area and shows the potential to be a favorite outdoor-place for the guests of SUPERBOOTH21.

SUPERBOOTH21 & SOOPERgrail

SUPERBOOTH21

Here we go again, for real, seriously. From 5th to 8th of May 2021 a fulminant SUPERBOOTH21 will take place again in the FEZ Berlin. The trade fair for electronic musical instruments and music will then again present itself as a real event with a modern concept adapted to the new times, with attending guests and attractive exhibitors, almost as usual – with an additional day of events.  

As a selective international representation of a special industry for creative tools, Superbooth Berlin GmbH will present for the first time in 2021 a second event with similar ambitions.

SOOPERgrail

From April 30th to May 2nd, 2021 the FEZ Berlin will also host SOOPERgrail, an international conference, trade fair and exhibition for guitar builders, luthiers, craftsmen and other innovative manufacturers. For several years now, guitar builders and synthesizer manufacturers from all over Europe have been meeting regularly at their own events in Berlin. Events where people exchange ideas about craftsmanship, discuss remarkable products, present them, or sell them. Long before both events had to be reduced to the virtual world in 2020, the idea of a common, larger platform for musical instruments and their users was already under discussion.

HerrSchneider: “We as organizers (Superbooth Berlin GmbH) are looking forward to the coming year. We see the current situation as a challenge and chance. With the friendly support of the European guitar builders, we now see the unique opportunity to prove that for a successful trade show it has to be about quality not quantity.”  

Exhibitor and visitor numbers for the two events are strictly limited due to the changed circumstances. The well-known high quality of the discussions, meetings, concerts, demonstrations and workshops can only benefit from this. The calmer environment should also improve the situation when testing and exploring the exhibited products. For absent manufacturers, special concepts for digital and interactive integration into the event are in the makings.

Up to 150 exhibitors at SUPERBOOTH21 and 90 at SOOPERgrail meet a maximum of 500 visitors simultaneously in the building. Through a smart swap system, this number is doubled daily, allowing a total number of visitors of 4000 for SUPERBOOTH21 and 1000 for SOOPERgrail.

The hygiene concept for both events is already in the approval process. There are additional event areas in the green, further buildings around the FEZ Berlin and a space concept with tours and one-way routes through the exhibitions located in the buildings. This will ensure the most generous distribution of visitors on the exhibition grounds.  

An additional exhibition day reserved only for the professional visitors of SUPERBOOTH21, as well as the Labour Day as conference afternoon, exclusively for exhibitors and invited guests of SOOPERgrail, support thereby the special character as a unique meeting and experience space for all participants.

What remains to be said

This year, many of the previous exhibitors have helped SUPERBOOTH21 to stay within the realm of possibility, for which the Superbooth Team would like to express their most sincere thanks once again. All in all, SUPERBOOTH21 will be able to present itself internationally again, with a flexible and sustainable concept the organizers can react to changing circumstances.

We are slowly internalizing, individually and as a society, the routines that enable us to find a way to deal with the global pandemic. Concrete hygiene concepts are being tested, we are getting used to the changed way of dealing with each other and we now know better than in May 2020 how to behave in order to enable a safe social interaction. Until spring 2021 we will continue to learn and new insights will be incorporated into the planning of SUPERBOOTH21 and SOOPERgrail – for two safe and unforgettable events.

Superbooth20 Home Edition – Thank You & More Videos!

The Superbooth20 Home Edition was a great success and the organisers would like to thank everyone for their participation – the artists and brands who contributed videos, the media partners for their creative and informative contributions and of course everyone who followed the event on Thursday or at any other time. All single videos are now available on Vimeo and the official SuperBooth-Movies ( listen / learn / study / enjoy ) are also available from the official Youtube-Channel now.

Here are some official words by HerrSchneider:

Dear Visitors, Guests, Partners and Friends,

The SuperBooth20 Home Edition indeed gave an authentic impression of the missing real event to plenty of new visitors and all of us over the internet, it was a real success. Apart from the uncounted product introductions, technical updates and wonderful performances from all over the world we would like to let you listen to our very last words from two experienced artists and friends to keep these in mind for your next steps back into the wonderful world as it is. 

Resuming plenty of talks and discussions on Sonic State, Hainbach’s all day long YouTube streams and our own movies and interviews we had the impression to have formed the worldwide community a little bit stronger with what we did.

Exactly this was the job we were given in an online interview by Jean-Michel Jarre from France who could not join SuperBooth in time because his good friend Christophe who sadly passed away just a few days ago. 


The second “last word” was brought to us by our friend Daniel Miller for the “Miller Zillmer Stiftung” supporting artists and activities worldwide as a foundation now, also supporting the “modular synthesizer ensemble” reminding us to please support the next generation of upcoming artists with good ideas especially now.

The four blocks of the official SuperBooth-Movies ( listen / learn / study / enjoy ) are also available from our Youtube-Channel now, but if you follow the discussions we had, you will understand that the better way to watch them could be somewhere else. So please find everything including all single clips from Vimeo with texts on our website (https://www.superbooth.com/en/home-edition.html), thank you. 

And now please listen to Daniel Miller and Jean-Michel Jarre here or on www.superbooth.com, spread the words and stay home well, looking forward to welcome you all on board in Berlin again next year,  

With warmest regards,   

Andreas Schneider 

Embedding of individual videos possible on request. Please use the official Superbooth website to get in contact with the Superbooth team.

Modular Caroussel at GH36 Gallery

As part of the SuperBooth20 Home Edition we have found a temporary home for our beloved Modular Karussell at Große Hamburger Strasse 36 in Berlin Mitte at the gallery GH36 operated by Mr. Adam Chalk.

Our vision is to provide a privat space for everyone to explore the karussell and the surrounding instruments, such as the Haken Continuum as a field of experiementation and exploration.

Wether you are based in the modular scene, the intrumental side of music making or DJing does not matter. You can pick up your intrument and feed it through the Modular Karusell or run your vinyl collection through it. Many different scenarios are possible. One can always record their sessions and take them home. A video synthesizer and a beamer are also installed so that the combination of instrumental, electronic and visual becomes possible in one small and cozy place!

It is also possible to play a gig for the street as we have installed a speaker on the outside of the gallery. To set up a privat appointment contact Mr. Adam Chalk via ac@gh36.de. Two people will be allowed in for each session.

There is no general booking fee required while a small donation to the gallery is welcome.

Superbooth20 Home Edition – April 23.

The year 2020 without Superbooth in Berlin? There are many topics that are certainly more important right now. Nevertheless, we don’t want to let the Superbooth days pass by. We invite everyone who wants to be there under our (virtual) roof – on April 23rd, for the Superbooth20 Home Edition.

SUPERBOOTH20 Home Edition

Thursday – April 23rd – 2pm CET – www.superbooth.com

Many of the artists who would have performed at SUPERBOOTH20 play exclusive short concerts and provide insights into their studios. HerrSchneider invites guests to his digital table and some exhibitors show – in self-made videos – what they would otherwise have presented in Berlin. Furthermore, our media partners will tell you about the specials they are planning. After all, there will be many new developments announced from the most diverse areas, which we are all very excited about.

We present the whole event on www.superbooth.com – the videos are released according to a public schedule and are then individually available on our Vimeo and YouTube accounts.

With Superbooth20 Home Edition it is important for us to show that this unique community stands together and presents itself together even in difficult times. Without the help of many exhibitors and partners, this would not have been possible – we would like to thank you once again for your great support.          

Update: SUPERBOOTH20 had to be cancelled – New date: 6.-8. May 2021

Respecting the current situation this years SUPERBOOTH2020 is officially cancelled. The organizers were already able to talk to the venue and to find a new date: May 6th til 8th, 2021 in the wonderful FEZ Berlin again.

Superbooth Berlin expresses its thanks to the exhibiting partners and companies for their trust and for demonstrating solidarity, for offering their financial support now to let Superbooth “survive” this complicated situation. Andreas Schneider states: “Without this we could have run into real problems with this cancellation, thank you again. Also we would like to say thank you to all the Artists, active Partners, Suppliers and the whole staff team for their support already until now. We are very sorry, we had to go this way now. Asap we will get in touch with you to clear up the final settings and start planning 2021 soon.”

HerrSchneider is not resting, he is already planning some workshops online in the days where SUPERBOOTH20 could have happened once the situation will allow that, definitely without any audience.

And there are more news by HerrSchneider: “Starting now SchneidersLaden will be closed for visitors, cause who needs modulars? We will go ahead online, will help you on the phone and will deliver as long as stock lasts and as long as the Paketfritzen will ship it to you, who knows whats next?”

We are already looking forward to 2021 when we can all meet again at the worlds biggest synthesizer event – Superbooth Berlin.

This was the original SUPERBOOTH20 announcement:

SUPERBOOTH20 will show all the latest developments in the fields of electronic musical instruments, synthesizers, audio effects, drum computers, music software and all sorts of bizarre and innovative products from April 23-25. About two hundred exhibitors from all over the world will bring the latest developments for the production of electronic music to Berlin.

Most of the exhibitors of the last few years are also represented at the fair this year, the list ranges from Ableton to Zoom, from small to large and from analog to digital. Visitors can also look forward to seeing new faces. Among the newcomers are Noise Engineering and Supercritical Synthesizers from the modular synthesizer segment, Chase Bliss from the guitar effects segment and Bettermaker from the outboard segment and many more. For the exhibitor area additional space has been rented in the FEZ Berlin. A daily updated list of exhibitors can be found here. There are also new event areas in the outdoor area, especially for not-for-sale electronic musical instruments and installations – curated by Adam Chalk from the Galerie GH36 in Berlin Mitte.

Program

You can already get an impression of the final concert program by looking at the artists who have already been confirmed. Four large stages offer an exciting mixture of the whole range of electronic music until late in the evening. A special experience is provided by the seaside stage, which will be equipped with a 3D sound system from NewAudioTechnology this year. One of the best theremin players in the world – Carolina Eyck – will be demonstrating her skills on it.

  • The first day promises to be a great experience already – with an experimental set by Headless Horseman, followed by the concert of the British EBM band Nitzer Ebb on the seaside stage.  At the end of the day Techno veteran Surgeon will play in the big K1. Also already confirmed is a performance by Emika – she combines her skills as sound designer, classically trained composer and versatile singer and songwriter.
  • On Friday the seaside stage will be very lively with T.Raumschmiere & FuCKetYbUcKetY. Also on the seaside stage Cosmin TRG shows his skills. Besides further concerts of Nguyễn + Transitory and Kamikaze Space Programme Bernard Rasinger shows an extraordinary laser performance – controlled by his modular system.
  • On Saturday, MATTHS will play (slightly) quieter tunes on the seaside stage, before Lady Starlight performs uncompromising techno. Not to be missed is the A/V show of hackedepicciotto with Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten) & Danielle de Picciotto and the concerts of Swarm Intelligence and Kitmun.

This is just a small selection of this year’s concerts at SUPERBOOTH20. On the official homepage new names and times are added constantly, you can find them here.

Education Program

The Education area offers a varied program that brings several school classes and other interested participants closer to the world of electronic sound production and composition. This area is supported by the Miller-Zillmer Foundation.

Gammons Modular Synthesizer Ensemble introduces students to the topic with a dozen smaller modular systems. Together they develop a composition that the school classes perform daily between 1:30 and 2:00 pm in the auditorium. In addition, Leaf Audio offer a workshop on soldering the Microphonic Soundbox. The team of Selbstgebaute Musik invites for a workshop with the Instrumentenautomatenorchester. And the organizers are also pleased to announce the cooperation with the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, who will offer the workshop Creative Sound Safari.

Boat shuttle

The boat shuttles take the passengers to the FEZ in the morning and back to Berlin Mitte in the evening after the event. But by leaving SUPERBOOTH20 the music doesn’t have to stop yet – for the return trips to Berlin Mitte there are concerts and DJ sets on some of the boat shuttles. In order to experience these exclusive events on the river Spree, it is recommended to book your ticket online in time.

The return trips end near the Jannowitzbrücke. From there it is only a few minutes’ walk to the nearby official SUPERBOOTH20 parties at OHM, Melancholie 2 or C-Base.


SUPERBOOTH20 now has its own online shop: In addition to the intended significant simplification in purchasing additional trade fair services, there are already some of the popular T-shirts and other merchandise available: shop.superbooth.com

Pictures from last year’s event can be found here: SUPERBOOTH19

A large part of the video documentation of our concerts and events from previous years can be found here: Vimeo or Youtube.

Superbooth statement on Corona

Here is the official statement by Superbooth Berlin GmbH about the current situation regarding the Coronavirus:

Due to the current situation in the world regarding the Coronavirus, we were asked to state our point of view about this topic. With SUPERBOOTH20 starting in about 8 weeks from now, we prefer to rely on facts rather than speculations about the future.

Please check Robert Koch Institute in Berlin for further information (German/English):
https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/nCoV.html

Without any carelessness about health or risks, we basically are very careful with the daily news spreading and panic producing sensational reports.

We are observing the development, but can not say how the situation will change in the coming weeks. If we have the impression that we should act in any way, we will do so. By now we can only say, the situation in Berlin is safe and we do not want to be part of any speculations.

As long as there is no official ban by the authorities, we have decided to keep on working on the finalization of this year’s Superbooth.

Relax and make music! See you at SUPERBOOTH20!

This seems to be the way to go – why lapse into actionism now? The the situation will change during the coming weeks. Lets focus on a new and exciting edition of Superbooth Berlin! The program looks even more promising than in the years before! See yout FEZ Berlin from 23.-25. of April!

It remains with the proven mixture of new, up-and-coming and well-known artists. The supporting program of SUPERBOOTH20 will be subject to some innovations, in particular the outdoor area of FEZ Berlin will be more integrated into the event.

The boat shuttle will be rethought, including the timetable, and it will have its own program of events. In addition to concerts, workshops will also be offered during selected boat trips.

The organizers are once again expanding the exhibition space for SUPERBOOTH20 so that the steadily increasing number of exhibitors can find enough space – the application phase has started. The majority of already known manufacturers from previous years are expected again. As always extended and supplemented by interesting, new brands. An expansion of the product range in the outboard sector is also planned.

The first 500 Early Bird tickets will go on sale on Monday 30 September. Prices can be found in the official ticket shop of SUPERBOOTH20.

The boat shuttle will have different times and a lower capacity this year. Because the jetty that we have used in recent years has been sold, there has been planning uncertainty about the boat shuttle to the end. All alternative jetties were unsuitable for the large boats we have used in the last few years. This year we are using much smaller boats – so we have to organize the access to the boats somehow. That’s why “priority boarding” tickets will now regulate access. If you buy a ticket, you will surely get on the boat – people without a ticket can use the rest of the seats.

 

From Mitte to SUPERBOOTH19

Departures: 8:20 am, 11:20 am, 4:20 pm

Find the jetty at “Historischer Hafen“, next to the “Roßstraßenbrücke“ – just a few hundred meters from the jetty we used to use. The shuttles are free but the boats have a limited capacity of 50 persons so we recommend you to buy a ticket for 5 € in our ticket shop. Ticketholders have priority during the boarding.  

 

From SUPERBOOTH19 to Mitte

Departures: 7:20 pm, 9:50 pm and at 0:30 am (including Bier and Würstchen!)

You can find the jetty at Weiskopffstraße 16, 12459 Berlin ( for your way back to town). The shuttles are free but the boats have a limited capacity of 50 persons so we recommend you to buy a ticket for 5 € in our ticket shop for the 7:20 boat. Ticketholders have priority during the boarding.

The price for the DJ-boat for priority boarding at 9:50 pm is 10 €. Thursday with jesusonecstasy Friday with Dr. Motte – Saturday with Alex from WMD.

The price for the DJ-boat for priority boarding at 0:30 pm is 15 €. Thursday with D. MillerFriday with Mark ReederSaturday with t.b.c.

TICKETS will be available through the official online shop. Find them here

E = Entry Level
H = Half High
O = Oben (Top Floor)
W = West Wing

On The Entry Level “E” you can buy tickets, get your festival pass, get general information – and there is exhibition area. The Half High “H” area is mostly exhibition area. On the Top Floor “O” you find the Auditorium, Cinema, K1 and exhibition area. The west wing “W” is mostly exhibition area and is accessible via a small corridor next to the public swimming pool or through the outdoor area where you also find the catering area.

Video: Looking at Raster.Labor – with Frank Bretschneider

Raster.Labor is an installation project by Raster.Media with contributions by Byetone + Mieko Suzuki, Dasha Rush, Frank Bretschneider, Grischa Lichtenberger, and Robert Lippok.

Premiered at the CTM Festival 2019, we took the chance to bring this great project to SchneidersLaden and explore the ideas behind it with one of the creators – Frank Bretschneider. During the planning stage of the installations Frank discussed some different approaches for the central machine of all five installations with us. The beating heart on all five tables was a modular synthesizer, providing control voltages for modules and other sound generating devices that are forming the individual parts of each installation.

In this video Frank Bretschneider goes into detail on how the project evolved from the idea to the technical realization.

The next chance to see the installation is at SUPERBOOTH19, from 9th to 11th of May 219 at FEZ Berlin.

Education at SUPERBOOTH19: Synth Workshops and DIY

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section” _builder_version=”3.19.17″ custom_margin=”35px|30px||30px”][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.19.17″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.19.17″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.19.17″]

During SUPERBOOTH19 there will again be dozens of different workshops in the areas of synthesizers, modular, DIY and more. Besides Gammon’s Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, about which you can learn more here, there are various ways to learn in a wide range of topics – from the basics of technical construction of electronic instruments and DIY to learning modular synthesis.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.19.17″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.19.17″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.19.17″]

Learning Synthesis

One example are the workshops of experienced synthesizer expert Alissa DeRubeis, who is working for 4ms and the Synth Library. During SUPERBOOTH18 she gave workshops for female and non-binary guests to enable this group of participants to have their own beginner experiences. At least during the educational Saturday we will be able to offer this again, please note the program for the slots on the other days and all other workshops.

DIY area

The DIY area is an important part of every Superbooth. Each day of SUPERBOOTH19 several workshops of different manufacturers are planned. In this video Manu von Befaco talks about his experiences with DIY workshops at SUPERBOOTH18. He gives a good overview of the range of workshops – they are suitable for absolute beginners and advanced users. The DIY area will again bring electronics closer to the audience and show how they are assembled to form an instrument.

Alec Empire and Nex show Unplug and disconnect: The musical story of the many victims of modern surveillance – how surveillance technology is used to harm and silence journalists, activists and dissidents. Alec and Nex will present audio and visual representations of the spyware used by governments. To find out more follow the link. Or explore the many DIY workshops that are offered by different manufacturers like Befaco, LeafAudio, Random*Source, Birdkids and more. Some exhibitors are also planning workshops and presentations with their latest products. Keep an eye on the program and announcements during the event.

SUPERBOOTH19 will take place from 9 to 11 May in the FEZ Berlin.

Education at SUPERBOOTH19: Modular Synthesizer Ensemble

The Modular Synthesizer Ensemble has become an integral part of Superbooth Berlin. After the successful cooperation of the previous years. Gammon with his ensemble of 12 individual modular synthesizers is again part of the program. Organizer Andreas Schneider is looking forward to Gammon’s renewed participation at SUPERBOOTH19: “Gammon’s Modular Synthesizer Ensemble has always been a great fit for us. This year in particular we have a lot to gain from his participation, because our focus this year, and especially on Saturday, is on education. That is also the reason why Gammon is even more frequently represented in the program.”

On Educational Saturday he looks after several groups of pupils and students in shorter workshops with the synthesizers. On Thursday and Friday Gammon and the participating students will meet at 9 am in the foyer of the FEZ to get to know each other and the instruments. For about four hours they work together on a performance with the 12 modular synthesizers of the ensemble. The finale is the live performance at 1:30 p.m. at which the previously worked out and rehearsed performance is presented live. Here is an example of the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble at Ernst Krenek Forum.


The instruments

The synthesizers that Gammon brings with him demonstrate the versatility of modular synthesis. All twelve instruments have a different emphasis on tonal, interactive and rhythmic possibilities. A nice example of this can be seen in the following video. It shows how one of the systems used in the project can deliver complex rhythmic and tonal results with simple means.


Modular Synthesizer Ensemble at SUPERBOOTH18

Last years performance by the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble has been recorded. Enjoy the video to the composition that the children and Gammon put together in a few hours of rehearsal.


SUPERBOOTH19 will take place from 9-11 May at FEZ Berlin. The fair for electronic musical instruments shows products of more than 250 international exhibitors. In addition, the programme of the event offers more than 30 concerts and performances per day, as well as the possibility to attend one or more of the many workshops.

SUPERBOOTH19 – First announcements for the show program

Besides the 250 exhibitors from all over the world, SUPERBOOTH19 offers more than 30 concerts and workshops every day. International artists from all genres of electronic music will be present in the three-day program accompanying the trade fair.

Daniel Miller (Mute Records) will play the full version of his modular live set, Robert Lippok (Raster-Media) will be there, as will Scottish musician and instrument maker Ken Macbeth together with T.Raumschmiere (Shitkatapult). Caterina Barbieri plays a Gesprächskonzert for Frap Tools. Christian Vogel, Barbara Morgenstern, Lucid Grain, CYRK, Kebu, Kypski, Tilted Circle, POND – the keyboard electronics classic of the GDR – and more will be playing on the many stages at SUPERBOOTH19. The winners of Ick mach Welle, a music project that enables people with disabilities to play electronic music, are also represented in the program of SUPERBOOTH19.

Educational Saturday

Saturday at SUPERBOOTH19 will be dedicated to education and thus reflects the tradition of the event space FEZ Berlin. The workshops on Modular Synthesizers and DIY offered especially for pupils and students make Saturday particularly attractive for young people. That applies in particular, because of the special pricing for educational institutions, which can apply for strongly discounted ticket contingents. But also for all other guests there are different educational opportunities in the program on all days of the event.

Although the event offers a daily program until 11 pm, there are still several official aftershow-events to celebrate the rest of the night. The C-Base as a publicly accessible and official venue is complemented by three company events in the OHM-Club – for both locations there is currently a program with a lot of live music in the making. C-Base and OHM can be reached very comfortably with the regular boat shuttle.

Boat-trip to SUPERBOOTH19

The free shuttle service runs several times a day between FEZ and Mitte and ensures a relaxed journey to SUPERBOOTH19 and also back to Mitte. This is a great opportunity to make new contacts, talk shop or enjoy the unusual perspective of Berlin.

Visitors with a trade visitor ticket can enter the fair at 10 am. All other guests can buy full-day tickets, which are valid from 1 pm to midnight and will give you access to the C-Base for the after-show events. If you only want to see the evening program, you can buy tickets from March onwards which allow admission from 6 pm. Children and young people up to the age of 16 can attend the event free of charge.

Tickets for SUPERBOOTH19 are for sale until 08 May

Get your discounted tickets for SUPERBOOTH19 now!

The pre-sale for SUPERBOOTH19 has started. Until the end of December you can get the Early Bird tickets for SUPERBOOTH19 at a special price. The international trade fair for electronic musical instruments expects 250 exhibitors from all over the world. The fact that the annual event is more than just an ordinary trade fair has been proven again and again. From 9-11 May there will be dozens of concerts, workshops and presentations every day in the FEZ Berlin.

Electronic music and Berlin – that fits. SUPERBOOTH19 once again puts electronic sound generation at the center of the world’s largest trade fair of its kind. The trade fair has thus become a real highlight, both in Berlin’s calendar of events and in international perception, which not only excites the exhibiting companies.

For many exhibitors and guests the way to SUPERBOOTH19 leads via the free boat shuttle from Berlin-Mitte. This makes the journey to the FEZ Berlin, which is located a little outside the city, a city tour on the water and very easy. Here is also the first opportunity to have a chat and make contacts.

Organizer Andreas Schneider is delighted about the great response from all sides and the many exhibitor enquiries for SUPERBOOTH19: “Of the exhibitors from this year, 80% have already confirmed their renewed participation. Therefore we are also looking for new exhibition space in the FEZ Berlin to confirm the still open inquiries of new exhibitors and to accommodate the expected 8000 guests”.

There is more news from the organizers: The media coverage at SUPERBOOTH19 is to be democratized. In order to allow the exhibitors an undisturbed set-up and to give the arriving media equal opportunities in their reporting, a general camera ban will apply on the set-up days of the fair. Thus small and large media should have the same chances to discover the news of the fair on the opening day during the trade visitor time. Andreas Schneider says that “small and large media should have the same chances to discover new things here, that’s why we have always had the trade visitor time”. This compensatory approach is also reflected in other aspects of the trade fair – e.g. in the selection and positioning of the exhibitors, through which large and small manufacturers are presented equally side by side.

Kreisferkeer Flaake – live @SUPERBOOTH18

Live electronic music by Kreisferkeer Flaake at SUPERBOOTH18 on May the 4th 2018 – improvised for this evening and for this place.

All Kreisferkeer Flaake performances are improvisations – That’s why the music is different each and every time, oscillating somewhere between Dancefloor, Ambient and Experimental. No tricks, no props, no safety net, instead music and sounds are created on the spot and just for the moment. What you hear is what you get: three humans with their electronic sound machines – and no computers.

Max Loderbauer & Tobias Freund as NSI @SUPERBOOTH18

Max Loderbauer and Tobias Freund have been producing and playing under the name NSI for years. Finally on Superbooth18 they played this great set with not one of their countless modulars on stage, creating wonderful atmospheres for the seated audience. As all other concerts at SUPERBOOTH18 this performance has been documented. Watch the complete concert here:

 

Bernhard Rasinger alias BR Laser live @SUPERBOOTH18

Bernhard Rasinger performs his laser shows as BR Laser – he uses a voltage controlled synthesizer and laser to create incredible audiovisual experiences. Therefor he build a eurorack modular synthesizer with standard modules for audio. By testing and selecting the modules that play best together with the laser he is now capable to perform the incredible performance that you can now see in the video below. This show was performed in the Auditorium at FEZ Berlin during SUPERBOOTH18 in front of 550 guests.

Video: Carolina Eyck @SUPERBOOTH18

The next workshop guest at SchneidersLaden is Carolina Eyck. The famous Theremin player is going to show you how to master this very special instrument. In May 2018 she performed at the sunny Seaside Stage at SUPERBOOTH18. To get into the mood for the workshop at SchneidersLaden (September 6th) and get an idea of Carolinas incredible skills please watch the video below.

Islaja on the sunny Seaside Stage @SUPERBOOTH18

Islajas hypnotic, beautiful music on the Seaside Stage during SUPERBOOTH18. Islaja is Merja Kokkonen: a composer, performer and recording artist based in Berlin, Germany. Since her debut in 2004, she has released several albums on Finland’s Fonal Recordsan and other labels. The most recent album Tarrantulla came out on Svart Records in December 2017.
She earned quick praise in the international music press for her unique vocal style and daring DIY approach to music composition – which you can hear on this video recording. In addition to her solo work, she also performs with Monika Werkstatt, an all-female collective of international artists founded by Gudrun Gut.

d’Voxx – live concert @SUPERBROOTH18

d’Voxx is a live electronic music project using only modular instruments for live performances, they explore the post-digital landscape working within the constraints of an analogue domain. In May 2018 they played an atmospheric live show at SUPERBOOTH18. d’Voxx reject the notion of preservation for a more transitory paradigm. Seeking to explore the space between live performance and recorded artifact, and through their recordings they document the collaborative progress of the artist, and the new modular instrument.

No laptops, no MIDI and no samplers – just pure voltage control. d’Voxx performed in the legendary Funkhaus studios as part of the ColdWaves project at the Music Tech Fest Berlin and have performed at electronic music events throughout the UK since their founding in April 2016. In addition to the performance of live music sets, d’Voxx also offers seminars and workshops on modular synthesis and electronic music production.

The following video shows the concert that d’Voxx played in K1 Hall at SUPERBOOTH18:

 

Silent film score by Gebrüder Teichmann and Mathis Mayr – THE BLOOD OF A POET @SUPERBOOTH18

The brothers Andi and Hannes Teichmann – Live-Electronic and Processing (NOLAND) and Mathis Mayr – Cello (Ensemble Mosaik) played a live film scoring for the silent film “The blood of a dead poet” at SUPERBOOTH18 – of cause with synthesizers. The avant-garde film is a production from the year 1930 and was directed by Jean Cocteau.

Mathis Mayr, born 1972, has been a member of the Ensemble Mosaik since 2008. He studied cello with Uzi Wiesel in Sydney/Australia and at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich. Other areas of interest include experimental electronic music, historical performance practice and micro-tonal music. Andi and Hannes Teichmann as musicians, DJs, label makers and cultural activists have been an integral part of Berlin’s techno underground since the late 1990s. During this period, they have also experienced Berlin’s transition from a subcultural oasis to a global brand. But they have never been interested in the commercial aspect of club culture: The sons of a multi-instrumentalist influenced the DIY culture of the early scene with their constant search for diversity and the playful desire for improvisation and transformation. In addition to music, as project initiators and organizers with the Goethe Institute, they developed the much-noted Africa Europe projects Berlin – Nairobi BLNRB and the follow-up project TEN CITIES. Their label NOLAND, founded in 2015, bundles this path of the last 10 years from the underground to the interground.

Gammons “Modular Synthesizer Ensemble” project @SUPERBOOTH18

This is the presentation of Gammons Modular Synthesizer Ensemble project. Together with a school class he developed the composition that can be heard and seen in this video. The pupils participated in a workshop that started early in the morning to get an introduction to the instruments and to create a composition for a short performance in front of the SUPERBOOTH18 audience.

With Theremin, classic analog synthesis and electro-acoustical elements the “biggest band at SUPERBOOTH18” played a versatile and innovative performance that hopefully made some students and teachers look beyond their own nose – in terms of how music can be made.

Joke Lanz and Thomas Rehnert @SUPERBOOTH18

The duo combines acoustic drums, analog modular systems, video synthesizers and turntables in an improvisational live performance that includes noise, drone, hardcore and free jazz elements. Their music is characterized by the interweaving of electroacoustic and purely acoustic sounds, the direct interaction of the musicians and the often surprising results. The third protagonist is a self-controlled modular system that provides sound and visual impulses and contexts for the musicians. In particular, the turntablist Lanz’s playing is characterized by his virtuoso and nuacen-rich use of cuts, vinyl switches, scratches, volume and speed modulations. Rehnert’s drumming, on the other hand, combines gestural and textural playing with analog synthesized sound, which is created by a complex network of interconnected modules in which sound, video and control signals are transformed and influenced.

Blotter Trax and Lillevan -> concert @SUPERBOOTH18

What a successful completion of the first SUPERBOOTH18 day!

One of the big highlights of this year’s event was the performance by Blotter Trax (Magda & T.B. Arthur) together with Lillevan who made the visuals for this show. As headliners of the first day of Superbooth this year the artists have successfully made everyone dance – after 12 hours of trade fair show!

The inspiring symbiosis of visuals, sound and especially the hypnotic use of vocal samples by these outstanding artists took the dancing guests to a different world and ultimately transformed the trade fair into a festival for electronic music.

Befaco

Befaco

Manu from Befaco introduced three new modules: Burst, Kickall & Muxlicer.

Burst is a little pingable trigger burst generator –  and can be triggered from any trigger source making them fit to your tempo in a cycling proportion . It also can divide or multiply triggers and  can be linear or in a synced nonlinear mode so that you can have  more  or less trigger over the time range – which gives you a kind of creative random mode including triplets quintuplets and so on – and creates true  polyrhythms in your modular synth. The module should come very soon and will cost 195 €.

Befaco_2

A 6hp analog drumvoice will come later this summer – called Kickall. It will feature two envelopes for decay and pitch and two vca‘s for volume und accent. Furthermore the waveform can be morphed from sine to square for nice wave-shaping effects and sounds really nice and fat. A price is not clear yet. More drum modules will follow .

Befaco_3

Last but not least the multifunctional eight stage Muxlicer which can easily generate complex sequences – and also switch, slice and mangle with your CV / Gate audio sources. An absolute fun tool -acts like a bidirectional analog switch and eight step sequencer. It delivers CV adressing and advanced tempo features like independent clock  divider/multiplier and tap tempo, one shot , VC Gate multiplication and so on –  all of that in just 16 hp without beeing to tiny and its chainable too. It will be out in june for 240€.

Cwejman

Cwejman

In a long hot corridor on the second floor between speaker brands, magazines and music schools, the Cwejman booth was to be found. 6 rows of 84TE analogue gorgeousness causing salivary flow to the so called „Cwejman Junkies“. Resignated, heartbroken looks where exchanged among many well dressed visitors, presumably due to the rarity of all Cwejman items. Especially the Cwejman MBC-3, Wowa´s newest creation, a CV controlable mono multiband compressor gives reason to feel pain if one is not able to achieve ownership in time. Not even a well filled bank account can help easing the heartship on this one……a rare situation in our capitalistic world.

Cwejman_2

 

Wowa excused himself but entrusted Franz and Phil to represent the brand. They patched gloriously and tried to help with updates regarding delivery dates. The updates so far: Modules are available again with grey front panels. The S1 mk3 will most likely arrive some day but needs an official announcement.

Cwejman_3

The MBC-3 is a super amazing 3 band compressor with insane patching potential. To learn more about it, please take a look at Wowa´s presentation one month ago at Schneidersladen. Wowa is in great shape, very motivated to develop new great modules and is very relaxed.

 

 

 

Black Corporation

Black Corporation

Next to the well known CS80 clone „Deckard´s Dream“, the Black Corporation had their newest synth Tier on display. The RSF Polykobol clone „Kijimi“. Stuffed with 8 voices, 2 CEM3340 based VCOs per voice and SSM2040 filter clones. Loopable envelopes, which have 4 different zoom levels meet 2 LFOs. All in all great stuff that sets itself apart from some low priced clones that flood the market by  diving deep into the material, using good custom components and implementing additional cool features.

Deckardsdream_2

The manufacturer was happy that a solution for a lost banner was found quickly by the main men René and Jan.
