20H: TALKs with
ALEC EMPIRE (ATARI TEENAGE RIOT)
OPEN CDR - submit your tunes to hear them during the night
The original CDR Berlin crew says goodbye with two guests on their couch who couldn´t be more diverse. Both have been very influential for many years in two completely different orbits. While Berlins Alec Empire created genre defining Atari Teenage Riot with the corresponding label Digital Hardcore Recordings he also remixed artists such as Björk, Slayer, Einstürzende Neubauten, Primal Scream and many more. Bochums Herbert Grönemeyer is one of germanys most successful musicians who has filled many stadiums and lead charts for decades while also creating soundtracks for and starring in films. Both will share some thoughts on their musical and personal journeys at CDR Berlin on march 5th.
CDR Berlin: Every music producer knows the score: one can tinker away on a track for all eternity but it lacks something vital, and one still doesn't know what. Is the sound right? Does the arrangement work? How will the tune work on the dance floor? What will my buddies think of it? When is the track really complete? These are the questions to be answered at CDR. The aim of the event is not simply to give a straight lecture but to swap experiences in an open discussion with all participants. A subsequent clubnight with previously submitted tracks will continue after the workshops. Bring your tunes on CD or USB stick and you'll get to hear them later over the Prince Charles soundsystem when CDR organiser Dirk Rumpff pulls them together in a DJ set. The respective artists' names will be displayed, if so wished, so as to facilitate immediate feedback.
CDR Berlin shall continue in the future. We will keep you updated when and in which format.
