Border Movement Lounge Opening in Colombo
Over the past few years, the Goethe Institut has supported underground electronic music by facilitating parties, shows, workshops and artist residencies both in Germany as well as the Subcontinent. The Institut has also organized larger projects to promote cross-cultural collaboration between artists in the regions and an umbrella for these activities is the web platform you are on right now. Acting as a communicator and cultural catalyst we have co-initiated and organised projects and events, such as SoundCamp South Asia or Pettah Interchange, in Sri Lanka, India and neigbouring countrie
Our vision for BML is to create a vivid platform in real life for both established and upcoming artists to gather, perform and experiment whilst giving Colombo-ites the opportunity to hear fresher sounds from the local scene.
Every two months this relaxed space with a quality sound system, a laid-back atmosphere and a colourful ourtyard will open its doors to the public. With a hand-picked selection of artists showcasing their work each night, the lounge looks to foster a more open-minded and interactive culture of electronic music performance, and a new form of appreciation of the genre from the local music community.
Forthcoming BML evenings will showcase other artistic aspects of electronic music culture such as video installations, films or live visuals.
By inviting a variety of both established and lesser known artists, we hope to break down barriers and explore the array of possibilties that are present in the fast evolving world of electronic music today..
