Last weekend Onebeat met the Viva con Agua stage at the Carnival of Cultures (Karneval der Kulturen) for the second time. We enjoyed an amazing afternoon with some of Berlin’s best sunshine. The day kicked off with Mr. Space Commander, who just showed up and wanted to play in front of the Stage while we where setting up. Some seriously good entertainment.. thanks David, you are crazy, in a wonderful way! Sadly we don’t have any pictures of that, but his website sure is worth a visit.  Check www.spacecommander.tv.

We kicked off with a concert by Lavoisier, went over to a great set by Ma Tias, continuing with experimental electronica lives by Kyson and Wermonster. The rest of the day we had a proper dance with James A. Shaw and Bacalao & Sonne, who already rocked our dance floor on our showcase at Brunnen70 in Wedding 2 weeks before. Great crowd, great music and of course support for our partner, the charitable organization Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli, campaigning for clean drinking water worldwide. Check them out, full support.. wonderful people working for a good cause. All OneBeat artists played for free thus supporting Viva con Agua’s activities. Thanks everyone!

Dear OneBeat Artists, Supporters, Partners and Followers.

2011 was the first year of our young organization and we’d like to thank everyone for their great support and hard work. We’re looking back to lots of good music from our great artists, fun events and we’re thankful for all we have achieved. We’ll be taking it easy in January and do some proper planning of what there is to come. The project is growing slowly but in a healthy rhythm and we already have some exciting news to announce for 2012:

Last friday, the 16th of December, our second “Experimental Session” took place in João Cocteau in Neukölln. With the sessions we start our approach to small events based on experimental music and music performance.

This time we invited our newest member Kyson, to perform live (supported by Geordie Little) and RTZ23 to create visuals to his music. The weather was terrible as a low pressure zone was just passing over Berlin, icy rain was pouring down, so first of all we owe everyone that made to our event in these conditions a big thanks. Despite the bad conditions i think Kyson’s downtempo music kind of fitted perfectly into this ambience, personally sometimes i like to define it as “winter music”. For all those who haven’t heard his work yet, have a listen:

Inside it was warm and cosy, and after starting with a slight delay (typical for Berlin i guess) everything worked the way we thought it would.  The idea behind these experimental sessions is to bring artists together in new ways and to present something different every time. RTZ23 and Kyson collaborated for the very first time and they had only been in touch online, trying to put together a show with one visual theme per song. We wanted to create an audiovisual experience outside of the club context, and to create a stronger focus on the artist performance by presenting this in a space which is not a club nor a bar. We think that this worked really well, people sat down, watched and listened and as far as we know really enjoyed the performance. Big thanks go out to Geordie Little for supported Kyson on the guitar, to Kyson and RTZ23 for the hard work they put into it and of course to Joao Cocteau for the great venue. The date for the next session is not final yet, but expect it to be in early 2012. Hope to see you there next time!
