Outbound is a series of events inviting international artists to meet with local Berlin artists. Through collaboration and communication artists will build upon their traditions and approaches to their instruments to develop new pieces and perform in parallel with preexisting material presenting the audience with an evolution of themes of the new music scene.

Artists are paired based on their fields of interest, and meet over a period of three days to exchange and collaborate, concluding in a public performance and a radio show.

Outbound aims at facilitating new collaborations to further investigate important themes of the new/experimental music scene. In 2017, those themes are the inherent poetry of the voice, physical connections to sound and movement.
