A two way exchange, the Border Movement Residency (BMR) program creates unique opportunities for South Asian producers to engage with the music community in Berlin (BMR Berlin); while also offering Berlin based artists a platform to interact with musicians in South Asia (BMR South Asia).
Stones Throw artist Anika was the first participant in this program with a 6 week residency in Tehran in 2015; 2016 saw experimental producer and classical pianist Nene Hatun spend two months in India while producer and composer Andreas Spechtl interacted with the creative community in Tehran.
BMR South Asia is a collaboration between Goethe-Institut, Musicboard Berlin, Border Movement and Wild City, this year we are ecstatic to announce that Berlin based songwriter Dan Bodan will head to Tehran:
“Visiting Iran has been a dream of mine since taking a course of Iranian cinema over a decade ago. I am thrilled that Border Movements will be helping facilitate my first experience with the country and its people, and count myself very blessed to participate.”
We are also excited to reveal that house, bass and techno producer She’s Drunk will be spending one month in Sri Lanka and one month in India towards the end of the year:
“I truly think that this residency is a great opportunity for me to start working on a project I have had in mind for a long time. I am excited and am looking forward to learn and share knowledge with the people I am going to meet during this residency. I want to let myself being guided by new inspirations and new ways of working on music.”
