Musicians 2018

We are ver grateful to have our musicians dream-team back on board: Barnaby and Alex. It is such a pleasure to have these two incredible improvisers supporting our Jams again, being so well tuned in with each other while communicating with the dance in the big space.



Alex Zampini (Berlin)


I’m a Berlin-based freelance artist, and I create music and films on my own or in collaboration with other human beings from different social and cultural ecosystems.

My focus lies on improvisation, especially on the relationship between body, sound and image and as both filmmaker and musician I collaborate with dancers, performance artists, healers and teachers around the world.
I consider art a powerful self-knowledge tool, where I can focus on specific aspects of reality and get into a process. My projects are indeed long term process-oriented experiences.

Contaminated by the combination of elements such as punk, baroque music, real food, airplanes, climate change, Pink Floyd´s Live in Pompeii, entheogens, rainbow gathering, busking, snorkelling, dumpster diving and meeting a number of diverse brilliant souls during the thirty-two years spent in this body, I perform multi-instrumental sound journeys, mainly supported by string instruments, electronics and random weird-sounding toys. My approach to music aims to be multidirectional, nourished by the surroundings, which inspire my music and vice-versa.

Barnaby Branch (UK, Berlin)


Barnaby is kind of the house musician of our festival. Not limiting his musical activities to the assumed highlights like classes and Jams, but often filling surprisingly places and phases with his cello sounds and other instrumemts he gets into his fingers. A dedicated performer, with an admirable independency and abiltity to connect to the surrounding. A few artistic wors from him:

musician, improvisor, dinosaur. 

Arriving backwards into the dance world this musician comes with trumpets that are made of strings,
people upon hearing these trumpeting heavenly sounds cannot help but enter the soft body of dance singing.
