Dear musician, netlabelhead, netaudio enthusiast, creative mastermind, visual aesthete and free thinker?
From the 8th to the 11th of October 2009, we are again gathering the international netaudio community for a 4 day festival and conference in Berlin. The event will take place at Maria, a venue which is situated immediately on the former Berlin Death Strip ? which once divided the city and the world into eastern and western hemispheres. These days have long past ? but the 20th anniversary of the tear-down of the wall recalls pictures of helping hands reaching out to pull people from both sides up on the wall. We saw dancing people on top of the then useless scarf of concrete ? and felt the beginning of a new historic chapter, visualized by the reunification of the two German states. In 2009 we will pick up the spirit of those days and invite many hands and minds from all over Europe ? and beyond ? to find out more about the needs and possibilities, challenges and chances of netaudio under the various cultural frameworks in East- and West-European countries.
As a first step you are kindly requested to fill in the Call for Entries-Form. You will be asked to give specific information about yourself, your project and your proposal. If you?re heading for involvement within the musical program we ask you to upload demo-sets (no netlabel releases!) to our soundcloud-dropbox. If you don?t know how to handle Soundcloud ? don?t worry ? it?s very simple! The sets must not be older than six months. Also we ask you for your possibilities to save some money by using personal connections (transport, accommodation etc.). It might also be helpful for a decision.
The call for entries ends at Sunday 31st of May 2009. We than take down the form and finalize the program with the help of your inputs. We will get in contact with you latest by the end of June. We are looking forward to a strong number of queries and hope we can invite you as a participant of Netaudio Festival Berlin 2009! See you all there!
