bohemian drips is a Berlin based artist collective with focus on performing and capturing unique musical happenings in settings with distinctive acoustics. We challenge artists to explore and reinvent their sound: Using the interactions between music, architecture and atmosphere as a framework for creation, we’ve developed our own definition of the production processes behind performances and records.
By curating artists and spaces we provide a platform for a new form of artistic expression, captured live and in binaural audio by using 3D “Kunstkopf” technology. Thus, the listener of our records experiences a new perspective of sonic perception, being directly relocated to the actual recording scenario.
Initiated in 2011 as a playground for its very special idea of music, bohemian drips grew to actual form in late 2014 with the release of “Zuhause im Weltall”. An LP featuring binaural recordings of six Berlin artists, who were invited to compose a piece of music for the acoustics of an 100 meter-long underground tunnel. This marks the starting point of the bohemian drips label and its continued effort to explore, create and provide outstanding sounds.

The Conny Plank Rework Sessions (2012-2013)
After being involved in the curation of the compilation “Who’s That Man – A Tribute To Conny Plank” in 2012 for Grönland Records, “bohemian drips” teamed up with Simon Clement a.k.a. “esclé” from Leipzig to host a concert-tour in five german cities. Each event featured both a live arrangement of the digitalised Conny Plank archive material by one of the rework-artists and a live concert by one of the representatives of the german Krautrock-scene. The result was an unique mixture of modern production approaches and the musical spirit of the 60s and 70s. The visitors were able to experience Conny Planks heritage from two different perspectives in a single event. Electronic musicians like Günther Lause, Kreidler’s Toulouse Low Trax or Uncanny Valley’s Credit 00 interpreted the material in a contemporary context, while Can’s Jaki Liebezeit, Dominik von Senger, Embryo, Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius sent the audiences back into the mystical depths of the Krautrock-era.
