CEEYS are an instrumental German duo formed by the two brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke, whose music is an impressive hybrid of classical and electronic instruments, principally based on cello and piano, an experimental mix which transports the listener towards unexplored dimensions.In February, CS will release Concrete Fields, on 1631, an experimental modern classical album following the previos The Grunewald Church Session, introduced as “The first part of a trilogy this time a remembrance to our childhood and teens in the Communist-era GDR , the quiet revolution and the 90s“.We are very happy to share a streaming premiere of two tracks extracted from Concrete Fields, the first single “Rueber” and the brand new extract “Based II“.

The Q3Ambientfest is the festival for experimental modern classical music, launching in 2017 and curated by Potsdam-based instrumental duo CEEYS and Dutch event label FLUISTER.

The festival will focus on the range of today’s contemporary composers in the neo-classical scene, and is dedicated to all open-minded music lovers.
It will take place at the beginning of April in the inspiring artistic surrounds of the fabrik Potsdam near the world-famous film town Potsdam-Babelsberg.
Additionally, the festival aims to connect Potsdam’s diverse historic architecture, from neo-classical palaces to GDR “Plattenbaus”, with the music and work of the artists of this unique genre.

Q3A is the abbreviation for “Querwandbau” (cross-wall construction), a particular type of multi-story pre-fabricated building constructed in the GDR.

Anspruch des Festivals ist es, die Stadt Potsdam mit seiner vielfältigen historischen Architektur zwischen neoklassischen Schlössern und DDR-Plattenbau mit der Musik und dem Schaffen der Künstler dieses einzigartigen Genres zu verbinden.

Q3A steht als Kürzel für die erste mehrgeschossige Großserie in Typenbauweise in der DDR: Querwandtyp 3 Variante A.
