Soundscapes : Electronic Music in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand
featuring the Teichmann Brothers and Rubber Inc. Performances and Workshops 26 Aug - 13 Sep 2007 Cebu City / Makati City +63 2 8405723-24 goethepr@pldtdsl.net

“Soundscapes: Electronic Music in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand” is a two-year regional music project of the Goethe-Institut with a focus on electronic music. It began last year, when DJ/producer Hans Nieswandt visited nine cities in the region, scouting for talent, uncovering regional trends, meeting with local maestros in electronic music at workshops and playing gigs along the way. Upon his return to Germany, he selected one artist per city to participate in Part II of the project: collaboration with a German artist. For Manila, live PA pioneer Rubber Inc was selected. The duo, made up of Malek Lopez and Noel de Brackinghe, will be attending the C/o Pop Festival in Cologne in August to meet fellow electronic musicians from Germany. More importantly, they will be meeting the Teichmann Brothers, the German artists selected to collaborate with them. The project continues in Manila on August 26-September 13, when the Teichmann Brothers arrive to work on new tracks with Rubber Inc. DJ brothers Andi and Hannes Teichmann, founders of the record label “Festplatten”, have released tracks on internationally acclaimed labels such as Kompakt and L’age d’or. In 2002, they became the youngest recipients of the city of Regensburg’s cultural prize for their long-lasting contributions to and activities for the youth culture of the city. That same year, the two joined up with fellow musicians and performing artists to found an art association called “graz e.v”, which created not only an inspiring work space but also an independent room for regular exhibitions, symposiums, concerts and other cultural events. The Teichmann Brothers.will be in Manila to work on new tracks with local electronica group Rubber Inc. Expect a series of performances and workshops for the duration of their stay.
