Building Creative Ecosystems in Collectives with Through My Speakers

Through My Speakers (TMS) is a Berlin-based international collective of 17 producers, DJs, sound engineers and visual artists united by a love for music.

Sarah Farina, Qumasiquamé and Walter Vinyl are part of the core Berlin team of TMS. In this presentation, the trio will share their philosophy through records and conversation about their shared values and love of music culture. They will also talk about the collective model as a way to improve music culture and business, the importance of open discussions and sensitivity towards all members of the family, and how they produce music, publish releases, book and play gigs, and organize club nights in a collective structure.
