imp[or]trait #1: Mazen Kerbaj and the Irtijal Festival of Experimtenal Music in Lebanon

Mazen Kerbaj, Mathias Maschat

Talk in English language

Guest: Mazen Kerbaj
Moderation: Mathias Maschat

imp[or]trait is a new series of the Denkraum Improvisation, in which artists, scenes or initiatives related to improvisation are being portrayed. The first guest is the Lebanese trumpet player, visual artist and organizer Mazen Kerbaj, who lives in Berlin since 2015 and is part of the Berlin and Beirut as well as the international scene of improvised music. Mazen Kerbaj is also one of the pioneer voices of experimental music in the Arab world and a co-founder of the Irtijal International Festival of Experimental Music in Lebanon.

Mathias Maschat talks with Mazen Kerbaj about his work and the festival, which in 2020 is in its 20th year of existence. Also, Mazen Kerbaj is going to play short pieces of unprepared solo trumpet, in case this is possible again.

The event is offered as a live stream on our youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuoMNoRHJPiFqdAysZeEF0Q/featured

In addition, ten visitors are admitted to the event in the exploratorium. The general distance and hygiene regulations apply.
Registration is therefore essential to avoid overcrowding in the room. In order to track possible infection chains or for information, all visitors must also provide their contact details (name, address, telephone number) when registering. These are kept for four weeks and then deleted. The first ten reservations get the seats. Please register by Thursday, June 25th, 4 p.m. by email to: mm@exploratorium-berlin.de

We ask that you come with a mask. This can be removed at the seat during the event.
