Bohemian Drips presents: Speicher
On July 15th and 16th of 2017 bohemian drips will host six concerts in the two adjoining water reservoirs of Prenzlauer Berg, both of which feature singular architectural and acoustic characteristics.
Artists from different backgrounds were invited to develop performances in interaction with the spaces. The musical range spans free improvisation on electronics and objects, avant-jazz, minimal composition, drone and bruitism. There are three concerts per day, alternating between the two reservoirs.

Founded in 2011, "bohemian drips" is a Berlin based collective and vinyl label. After several productions and releases (i.a. in said reservoirs) that focus on capturing and staging music performances in settings with distinctive acoustics, „Speicher“ marks the first „bohemian drips“ event framed by the space itself as a compositional dimension: The „small“ reservoir features a reverb time up to 6 seconds, while the larger tank challenges the musicians and the audience with up to 18 seconds of reverb and unique echo-effects.
