|New music exchange between Ljubljana and Berlin
// April 11–15, 2006
// Zentrale Randlage, Schoenhauser Allee 169, 10435 Berlin
// U2 - Senefelder Platz
Soundbridge Ljubljana – Berlin creates situations and opportunities for artists from Ljubljana and Berlin to meet, interact, collaborate and establish creative ties. With its two program parts in Berlin (April, Zentrale Randlage) and Ljubljana (May, Metelkova) the projects gives mutual insights into the contemporary music production and the situation for artists and musicians in both cities
Berlin has been one of the most important and influential centres of new music creativity for the past decades. On the other hand, Ljubljana is one of the new smaller centres for an emerging but still under-promoted young generation of creative musicians and ideas – with a historical background of artists like Laibach or Borghesia, which have undoubtedly marked the development of the international music and art scenes. The exchange of information of what is currently going on in both of the local scenes is of a vital importance for Ljubljana and a piece of precious information for Berlin.
Soundbridge is organized by Kataman Production in cooperation with DISK – Initiative Bild & Ton ,Zentrale Randlage e.V., Zangi Music. The Project is supported by the Slovenian Ministry of Culture and Metelkova.
