Hansa Heroes/ Meistersaal
My role: Production Manager —
I organized this event for the Berlin-based performance collective behind the popular ‘Ein Hit ist ein Hit’ happenings and a corporate client who will remain unnamed, at the venerable Meistersaal, the legendary grand recording studio by the Berlin Wall. David Bowie’s seminal 70s albums Heroes and Now, Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life and The Idiot and U2’s Achtung Baby were produced here. The objective was to perform some of the legendary songs that originated at the Hansa Studios in order to connect the renowned guests with the artistic heritage of the site and the living musical culture that the studio helped create in the city of Berlin.
I was the key producer between the performing artists (among them singer/ songwriter Nikko Weidemann and other members of Moka Efti Orchestra as well as singers/ actresses featured in the TV show ‘Babylon Berlin’), the client’s Head of Music, the venue representatives, vendors, technicians and other contractors and the artistic directors who created the orginal ‘Ein Hit ist ein Hit’ format that was the namesake of the evening.
