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.

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.          

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!

Basic Electricity – With Mark Verbos and Perpetual Ash

February 9 – A Simple Obsession

The 25th edition of basic electricity seems to be a special one: Mark Verbos and Perpetual Ash will be performing. Both beeing experts on the subject of traditional 60s and 70s westcoast synthesis and for transforming it into exciting and expressive new art.

From the Basic Electricity website:

Mark Verbos makes music and modules. After 20 years of producing and performing in some of the most significant venues around the world, the former Buchla tech set up his own synthesizer company, Verbos Electronics. Mark Verbos is known for his unique live sets, which he improvises on the modular system he designed. Perpetual Ash is music made by Ashley M Puente – a performer, improviser, and visual artist – using a Eurorack modular and other electronics. Her music and visual artwork are inspired by the 60’s and 70’s light and space movement that emerged in California.
