bohemian drips presents: Speicher II

"Speicher II" is the second edition of a festival for site-specific music which takes place from the 15th to the 17th of June 2018 in the old water reservoirs of Berlin-Pankow. The immense acoustic scenery of the two water reservoirs will be witness to ten concerts across genres which will open up a spectrum of styles oscillating between New Improvisation, Free Jazz, Electroacoustic music, Drone, Noise and Minimal Music. Carefully curated by "bohemian drips", who alongside the artists approach the given space as an independent compositional dimension and as a joint starting point for musical, technical and performative processes, in order to set a common thread between music and architecture. The peculiar acoustic characteristics of the two water reservoirs stand out with their natural reverberation that can reach up to 18 seconds; an unusual scenario which usually doesn't apply to a traditional concert or studio context. Hence, every composition and performance is distinguished by its absolute individuality.
