A Boutique Music Festival
Q3AMBIENTFEST
since 2017
Fabrik Potsdam
official website: www.q3ambientfest.com

Q3AMBIENTFEST is a three-day happening for neoclassical and experimental music, featuring established and emerging artists from diverse genres and origins. The handpicked roster of talent for this year’s festival, founded and carefully curated by brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke, the award-winning Potsdam-based cello-piano duo CEEYS, invites open-minded music lovers to discover today’s contemporary composers and performers.

From avant-garde to pop, Q3A holds a mirror to the eclectic architecture of Potsdam, from neo-classical palaces to prefabricated “Plattenbauten” (panelhouses). These Communist-era buildings gave Q3A its name, which is an abbreviation for “Querwandbau” (cross-wall construction).

Q3A will take place at Fabrik Potsdam from 03-05 April 2020, in partnership with Dutch music initiative Fluister, piano & coffee co., Traurig und Untanzbar, Klavins Piano Manufaktúra Kft., SOMA Laboratory, 30CC and Brudenell Piano Sessions. It also joins Piano Day, an annual worldwide event and platform for piano related projects founded by a group of likeminded people around pianist and composer Nils Frahm, that takes place on the 88th day of the year because of the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated.

Launched in 2017, Q3A hosted 53 artists from 17 different countries, and takes place at Fabrik Potsdam, near the world-famous film town Babelsberg, less than an hour away from Berlin.

A Boutique Music Encounter
NOVEMBERSTIMMUNG
Edition 2019 · Nov 29
Fabrik Potsdam

Novemberstimmung

– when the year is coming to its end we are surrounded by that typical November, it is time for a musical encounter of the experimental and the classical, between avantgarde, ambient and pop. This infamous night – carefully curated by brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke, the founders of Q3Ambientfest in Potsdam also known as the renowned cello-piano duo CEEYS – invites open-minded music lovers to meet a handpicked selection of established and aspiring contemporary musicians and composers.

What is more, the event aims to establish a special bond between artists, audience and the fading year. The 11th month of year is one filled with melancholy, one in which personal experiences meet historical events – and so the encounter opens up space for everyone involved to find inspiration, dwell in the here and now, evaluate and appreciate and partake in a delicate sound experience against the backdrop of a colorful concert night.
