Os CEEYS estão de regresso a Portugal no próximo dia 07 de setembro, para um concerto no Auditório CCOP na cidade do Porto. O tema central deste concerto será o álbum Waende que celebra de uma forma única a queda do Muro de Berlim (no próximo dia 09 de novembro será o 30º aniversário). Waende retrata na primeira pessoa (os irmãos Selke que compõem os CEEYS viveram em Berlim Oriental) a vivência, a cultura e a sociedade da Berlim dividida. Na música criada e tocada pelos CEEYS, utilizando o piano, violoncelo e também alguns elementos eletrónicos que recuperaram, podemos ter acesso através dos sons e das introduções/explicações que são efetuadas como eram passados os dias e noites em Berlim. Mais que um concerto, a noite de 07 de setembro no Auditório CCOP, será também uma aula de história contemporânea contada por quem a viveu. Site oficial: www.ceeys.de Sebastian Selke x Daniel Selke The work of Sebastian and Daniel – “an extraordinary piece of music” according to BBC’s Mary Anne Hobbs – is marked by contrasts as well the idea of crossing musical barriers: in search of a shared language, their project CEEYS was born in East-Berlin. Following their REWORKS of artists such as Peter Broderick, they released their debut THE GRUNEWALD CHURCH SESSION (2016). While CONCRETE FIELDS (2017) paid tribute to their musical roots, WÆNDE (2018) came to terms with the fall of the Berlin Wall. The EP Q3A (2019) saw their first solo work, their latest album HIDDENSEE (2019) is a sort of 1990s travel log. All releases are part of a back-to-back anthology. CEEYS are represented by the labels 1631 Recordings, Oscarson and Neue Meister. CONCRETE FIELDS and WÆNDE are also available on both vinyl and CD while CONCRETE FIELDS is distributed digitally worldwide through Decca Publishing and Deutsche Grammophon. WÆNDE and HIDDENSEE are published by Kick the Flame Publishing in Leipzig. In 2017, they started their WÆNDE tour through Europe and played festivals such as Fusion or Reeperbahn. The brothers studied classical music at academies in Berlin and Leipzig. Both have been featured on numerous releases. Sebastian has collaborated with Ólafur Arnalds and Viktor Orri Árnason on a virtual instrument for Spitfire Audio, he is part of Erased Tapes’ I+I=X and Masayoshi Fujita’s BOOK OF LIFE with whom he only recently toured Germany. In 2017, they founded their boutique festival Q3AMBIENTFEST, where artists come together to create a bond between music and Potsdam's architecture. With their music, CEEYS not only reveal a dialogue between artist and instrument but also revive experimental approaches from the GDR – but always with a light tone of humour. New music and projects are set for release in 2020.
