Orange ‘Ear is a concert series that takes place in our shop/living space in Berlin-Friedrichshain. Musicians who have made a particular impression on us are invited to play in our living room before an attentive audience in an intimate atmosphere. The entrance is always free. To support the musicians we record the live performances with our video-studio-like set-up from multiple cameras and the utmost of care. We therefore remain extremely close to the musicians and are able to capture the live nature of the performances in a unique way. Orange ‘Ear is proudly non-monetary and makes its live videos available to the artists for free.
2015 it was time for Orange ‘Ear to take to the road: with a few cameras, a mixing board, some film lights, a trustworthy bit of camping gear, and a few oranges... In May 2015 Orange 'Ear was on a recording tour in Iceland. In November 2016 during the Airwaves festival we were back in Reykjavik to discover new music and meet friends again. We filmed 18 bands at the MYRKRAMAKT festival in 2 nights and produced a music video with the Pink Street Boys. 2019 we hit the road to the UK. We came back with four very special videos. It was great fun to meet Hamilton Yarns, Nummo Twin, Garden Centre and Rattle and to work with them together.
Since March we have been broadcasting weekly. Every time we were very pleased and surprised about the playlists of our guests. It turned out that the playlists presented a nice retrospective of the last ten years of Orange ’Ear. Some musicians even played songs live from their living rooms. These unique perfomances were real highlights.
