𝗔𝗠𝗣𝗟𝗜𝗙𝗬 𝗖𝗔𝗟𝗘𝗜𝗗𝗢𝗦𝗖𝗢𝗣𝗘 is a series of four open air showcase concerts presenting musicians who participated in the Amplify Berlin creative development program in 2020 and 2021. Each event features two live performances from the past artists in residence. Presented in co-operation with CURA with support of DRAUSSENSTADT, Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
𝗔𝗠𝗣𝗟𝗜𝗙𝗬 𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 is a residency program initiated by ACUD Macht Neu, designed to support emerging Berlin-based musicians through mentorships with more established ones in order to facilitate creative development through guidance, a focused work environment and access to resources.
At CURA we curate and enable curation, inviting other collectives and labels for music, art performances, film screenings and more. Together we can develop visions for a progressive urban society that is open, inclusive and sustainable.
Cura is Latin and means healing. This is about healing and revitalizing the city and the cityscape. A space that was purely functional is redefined:The 1800m2 parking lot becomes a highly frequented, cultural, charismatic space.
This is a collaboration between collectives SEV Berlin, ROH Art and Vinylwohnzimmer.
“Curate. Connect. Include.”
Mona Yim is a music producer, singer-songwriter, DJ and violinist. Born and raised in the south of germany she has Singaporean-Chinese and German roots and is currently based in Berlin. While spending a lot of time in the clubs of London, Berlin and Paris she discovered her love for electronic dance music and started to DJ and play live-sets. Mona Yims musical style can be described as House and Techno with UK rave influences. Inspired by artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Haruki Murakami and David Lynch she explores topics such as female empowerment, the exploration of her own identity and mental health and creates stories with a slightly surrealistic touch.
Lamb Kebab is best known for their visceral vocal and rap performances. Their productions employ chaotic breakbeat patterns, elements of Bass and Booty with a twist of sadism through a playful arrangement of sample-based pattern making. drawing inspiration from Giallo horror soundtracks and Dolly Parton, Lamb employs their lyrics as an exploration of amoral landscapes with topics ranging from abuse to teddy bears and sex work. Although relatively new to producing Lamb has cut out a niche for herself through collaborations with XVII, Imaabs, Reelle, Leo Luchini and AC with corresponding releases.
lil witch global - is a polish artist and music producer, whose creative practice embraces humor and drama. Coming from a background as a music video director, they are known for playing with the tropes of pop culture. Through the lens of living in the east and west, and across two centuries and political systems, they channel the absurdities of modern lifestyles with ironic and explicit lyrics.
The Amplify Berlin audience might know them as one half of R&D. This experimental rap/spoken word duo - created with writer Maru Mushtrieva - participated in the program with Black Cracker as their mentor. lil witch's DJ sets serve an eclectic music blend, shifting from ethereal trance and silly dance sounds to operatic gabber.
