Joining the second edition of Kaltern Pop Festival, stargaze is happy to present a new collaboration with Robert Gwisdek alias Käptn Peng. Together with him and his drummer Pete, we gonna find out how to merge philosophical texts, spoken words, self-made percussion and classical instruments. Things will be a bit quieter for us at this year’s festival, as we will mainly focus on the new project, but who knows, you might catch us on other stages as well….

Michelberger Music Happening

October 1-2nd, 2016 at Funkhaus Nalepastraße, Berlin

“…So it’s basically ‘creator’s jail’…..but on a volunteer, not arrested, basis, and in the Michelberger.  But still, they’re all kind of under ‘haus-arrest.’   And: forced to play.   Not a bad idea!  I’m liking this a lot.  I’ve written a screenplay like this in the States where they book you into a hotel and don’t let you out until you’re done.  Great room service, tho.  Not as good as Alan, but still good. Kidding.  Not about the screenplay.  That actually happened.”

stargaze is happy to announce a new musical happening in Berlin, taking place at the beautiful Funkhaus Nalepastraße where we’ve spent many hours already recording, rehearsing and working on several projects. We’ve been asked to invite some of our favorite artists and happy to see the likes of This Is The Kit, Käptn Peng and Polica amongst our friends Bryce Dessner, Aaron Dessner of The National, Shara Worden, Sam Amidon and especially curious about new faces like Vincent Moon, Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), Ragnar Kjartansson, Holly Blakey, Lisa Hannigan and many many more.

Dear everyone, thanks so much for your support, kind words, shared pictures and enthusiasm, celebrating David Bowie and his manifold music with us.

For all peeps in the UK, you can re-watch the concert via the BBC Online-stream, available until August 29th. You can also listen to the recordings only. For people in the rest of the world, it’s unfortunately a bit difficult for now. You can listen to the recordings, but not watch the whole concert. The YouTube- Channel of the Proms offers some videos:

Ashes to Ashes, Station to Station, Always Crashing In The Same Car, Starman and Heroes.

And thanks to the Telegraph for the review!
