THE SPACE BETWEEN US Music Convention fand vom 7 -9 Oktober statt.

Marie-Hélène Gutberlet introduces the Music Convention with some of her favorite tracks.
„I would like to thank each of you for your generosity, your shared thoughts and preoccupations that made this meeting so unique and multisided and rich in music and happy moments. Thank you!“

Bongani Madondo
Performance Lecture: Malombo Meets MaMlambo, a Fictional Affair and The IndieGENIUS tale of Rock ‘n Roll as part of the African Healing Systems
„And yes, folks we will keep on talking. Thanks for the music.“

Rangoato Hlasane & Kagiso Mnisi
Sekele – Bitsa Maphodisa: Street-bash as a marker of space for black youth in post-apartheid South Africa.
„An enriching experience it was to have raveled in your midst. It was a soul satisfying occasion that transcended   any kind of norm. I extend all the gratitude in the entire universe for having connected with you all. My hope is that the same universe conspires for all us to meet once more in the future.

The Space Between Us more than proved that sound is the source of all knowledge and love, be it simple or opaque.“ (Kagiso Mnisi)

Garnette Cadogan
Our mongrel music: Narrowing the space between us through sound

flips it from the A side to the B side as he traces the global legacy of musics that might freak you out. This is not a Jazz show. Special guest: Vijay Iyer on his award winning African rhythm inspired compositions for piano.

Stefanie Alisch 
The future is what it is all about“ – Broken Beat in London with a dose of afrofuturism
„Wow, such beautful music, with lovely crackly record noises…“ (Stefanie Alisch)

Dj Zhao
The vitality of African musical heritage and its deep connection to music today and tomorrow
„It was truly great to be in the company of all you fascinating individuals, each with fascinating ideas.
Hopefully next time we can trade more ideas and sounds.“ (Dj Zhao)

Tanka Fonta
Being Music Confluences & the Evolution of Expressions. Is it still African music?
„Words would be really insufficient to capture the incredible spontaneity, the continual improvisations of things from moment to moment, the instantaneous adaptations and swift changes + et cetera that each and every one of us contributed … YES, it indicated hard work, diligence, truthfulness, learning & continual growth and development of each and everyone as a human being and off course as artists, musicians, creators, writers, researchers, educators, poets et cetera et cetera….!
We will keep the embers of that creative flame which was ignited here, aglow…..!
There are many many possibilities open in the air and surely many things will grow out of these…“ (Tanka Fonta)

Charles Mudede
Art of the Soundtrack. How to put images to sound and vice versa.
„My talk is about something I often do: compiling music for film. As my films and work involve African themes or stories, I often turn to black African and black American music (or beats) to capture or deepen the cinematic tone. My contribution to the Spaces Between Us, which includes a digression into the genius of the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, provides a small selection of the black sounds I find for film images.“ (Charles Mudede)
