Los Angeles x Berlin Workshops

Following the Detroit x Berlin compilation and soundpack, we released Los Angeles x Berlin also as compilation and soundpack. Both compilations featured tracks created by artists from both sides of the pond, showing that collaboration is possible no matter the distance as long as inspiration strikes.
Both compilations and creative collabs were the result of several exchanges between Berlin and LA or Detroit: EXP__ first and second editions, The Potential, From Germany to LA for the opening of Deutschlandjahr, the 50th anniversary of Berlin and LA city-sisterhood, From Berlin to LA first and second editions… Now we would like to invite those in LA to join two half days of community learning and exchange at the iconic Seahorse Sound Studios:
