RBMA Session: Moderat

  • Friday 17 17:30 - 18:45

Moderat is the trio of Sascha Ring, also known as Apparat, and Gernot Bronsert + Sebastian Szary of Modeselektor. Although the three have varying musical backgrounds - Ring being the co-founder of Berlin’s Shitkatapult, known for his emotional electronic pop, while Bronsert and Szary mastered a roof-raising form of bass music through their labels Monkeytown and 50Weapons – the three have combined to thrilling effect as Moderat, a project that has grown in tandem with their solo careers, with four LPs and a handful of high-profile club hits skyrocketing the group to worldwide acclaim since their first release in 2003. RBMA-co-founder Torsten Schmidt hosts this lecture at Sonár Reykjavik with the humorous and thoughtful trio, examining their creative and collaborative goals.
