bohemian drips presents: Speicher V
a festival for site-specific music
in the old water reservoirs of Berlin-Pankow
August 20–22 2021

Speicher is a festival for site-specific music in the old water reservoirs of Berlin-Pankow, curated by bohemian drips since 2017. Since its beginning, the visitors could witness over 20 concerts and de-central performances, developed exclusively for the long-lasting reverberation of the tanks: With up to 18 seconds of reverb and eerie echo-effects these pieces were always guided by a similar conceptual approach that includes the space itself as a compositional dimension.
Speicher V will be held unter the idea of a “retrospective”: bohemian drips invited artists who either played at a previous edition or are in close proximity to the label’s activities, to (re)visit the tanks in different constellations or develop entirely new performances, incorporating the crew’s experience within the acoustic scenery of the two reservoirs. The 2021 edition will also be the first to feature label-own works to be presented on the first of the three festival days in August.
