Electronic Music

The Goethe-Institut Cairo offers three female electronic musicians from Germany the opportunity to spend six weeks in the residency space “Weiße Villa” in the neighbourhood of Dokki in Cairo, Egypt. The residency provides a unique possibility to exchange with the Egyptian electronic music scene, participate in collective jam sessions and to perform in Cairo.

Born In Flamez

Born In Flamez

Shirking notions of identity, Born in Flamez subverts gender and genre with a panoply of influences somewhere in the nether regions between deconstructed club, grime, and classical music. The project has released tracks on Infinite Machine, Monkeytown, Planet Mu and UnReal and collaborated with the likes of Modeselektor, WWWings, Muxxxe, Robot Koch and Ziur. They have produced with LA based noise trio HEALTH, tour with Tenessee based rap artist BBYMUTHA and co-curate CTM festival. They have collaborated with visual artists, choreographers, dancers and neuro-scientists. Their most recent projects include a digital performance piece for European Center of the Arts, Hellerau, soundtracking parts of a deconstruction of Wagners “Ring des Nibelungen” for Schauspielhaus Zürich and leading an orchestra for Volksbuehne Berlin.

They have received grants From Kulturstiftung Des Bundes, Goethe Institut, Institut Francais, Hauptstadtkulturfonds, Musicboard Berlin, Initiative Musik and Sächsische Kulturförderung.
