Europe Refresh supports the project STEEL CITY SOUND SYSTEM MOVEMENT


<p> The <strong>STEEL CITY SOUND SYSTEM  MOVEMENT</strong> is a performance and  intervention which is on the one hand meant to give life to different urban spaces and non-places, and on the other hand to break  down cultural barriers through artistic methods. According to the motto „deeply rooted  in the urban“, established negative connotations of traditional and folksy appearances and behaviors should  be broken down and mixed up. The SCSSM was created to free the roots of traditional Austrian culture  from a conservative and narrowminded image. The SCSSM stands  for<strong> frankness</strong> and the willingness for cultural exchange as a sign for a versatile and constructive coexistence in urban areas. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href=";set=a.143120685898142.1073741827.143119205898290&amp;type=1&amp;theater" target="_blank"><img alt="Cover Photos | Facebook" src=""></a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> The SCSSM in its actual form with its Austrian background - created in  „Steel City“ Linz, Upper Austria - shall just act as a symbolic place holder,  rather the SCSSM hopes to be an impulse for further openness in the minds of people of diverse cultural and national backgrounds, in the sense of appreciation of ones own roots as well as tolerance and respect towards other cultures.  </p> <p> The project <strong>doesn‘t only reflect </strong><strong>Austrian traditions</strong> in the visual way but  also the development towards an actual  valid urban sign language. Also the musical part of the project is a cultural melting pot. The jamaican roots of the soundsystem get mixed up with elements of contemporary  Upper Austrian sound culture. <strong>Music is the link through cultures and venues and is held in high esteem.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>B/L/OOMBOX</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> The soundsystem as multifunctional sound-sedan will be carried through parts of  the city, surrounded by individuals carrying and wearing symbols of  their own cultural background, to share and  mix it and to immerse into a moving cultural collage. The sound-sedan aka B/L/OOMBOX  is an adaption of a traditional Austrian mobiliar, the so-called  „Bauerntruhe“ (= farmer‘s box),  which was used to keep all the precious goods of the family. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href=";set=pb.143119205898290.-2207520000.1380338855.&amp;type=3&amp;theater" target="_blank"><img alt="last adjustments!" src=""></a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>WORKSHOPS</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> The <strong>STEEL CITY SOUND SYSTEM  MOVEMENT isn‘t just a Soundsystem</strong>.  It too hosts different kinds of  workshops, organized in cooperation with local initiatives for local residents. The  workshops deal with creative forms of expression e.g. DJing, songwriting, music production, visual art, street art, political, environmental, social and cultural education, alternative transportation vehicles, self sufficient and  independent living and the discussion of sociocultural aspects of art  in relation to the actual location and the personal background of the residents. Results of the workshops can either be shown in the STEEL CITY  SOUND SYSTEM MOVEMENT performances or at different  atypical venues to create impulses for further networking among the participants. Dependent from possible cooperating  initiatives, certain urban areas within a radius of 400 km around  Linz/Austria (to begin with) will  be chosen to host the STEEL CITY SOUND SYSTEM MOVEMENT.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The SCSSM-Crew</u> </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Amanda Augustin, Lorena Höllrigl, Maria Kerndle, Lukas Kopf, Lukas Jakob Löcker, Alexander Maitz, Daniel Mandel, Evi Pribyl, Veronika Schwaninger, Martin Winkler.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>      <img alt="Fothkljo" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href=";set=pb.143119205898290.-2207520000.1380472930.&amp;type=3&amp;theater" target="_blank"><img alt="SCSSM - backpack #1" src=""></a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>STEEL CITY SOUND SYSTEM ON TOUR</strong></u></p> <p> linz/austria 27.june 2013</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src=";feature=oembed" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p>

In this week we would like to arrange a three days workshop and the last day there would be the procession, with all the participating persons. In the transportation costs included is a car trailer for</p> <p> our soundsystemand three cars for the involved persons.</p> <p>  </p> <p> For a smooth production flow a regular service of the sound system is absolutely essential. Materials for the workshop are necessary (t-shirts, solder station, cabels, boxes, backpacks, location...).</p> <p>  </p> <p> Each location brings new difficulties and work with it, for that reason, we need to buy some new/longer cabels and someadaptation materials. No soundsystem can live without music, therefore we need to buy the rights of the songs too. The costs for the promotion in advance, are basically for advertisement and print.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u>                                                                                                                                                                                            </u></p> <p>  </p> <p> so, as you can see, we need a lot of different things to realize the project, therefore we really need your support!</p> <p>               </p> <p>  </p>
