Open Call: BauSongs Writing Camp in Berlin

Berlin calling! Join the songwriting camp for emerging talents from August 28 to September 1, 2023 in Berlin.

BauSongs is a songwriting camp in the studios of Bauteil3, located in the famous former airport Tempelhof. Participants will work together to create new music, instructed by professionally established composers/producers.

The instruction is based on various methods for composing, continuous feedback and presentations on everything from film music to non-western ways of composing and pop music. The camp also includes visits to selected artists and other networking opportunities as well as presentations by the established DJ and techno pioneer Mijk van Dijk and Jörg Röttgardt, Music Supervisor at Upright Music.

The camp’s three instructors are Kaspar Kaae (songwriter and film composer), Greta Schenk (GRETA) and Michael Møller (moi Caprice and The Mountains), who all are well connected in Berlin’s music scenes. 

All Danish and German musicians are welcome to submit an application, but the camp is primarily intended for upcoming talents. 12 spots available. 

BauSongs is inspired by Danish folk “højskole” traditions, and the hope is that the meeting of the participants’ different backgrounds, cultures and genres will result in completely new ideas and songs. Participants live together, eat together and travel together outside the studio to visit artists or go to concerts.

  • Accommodation, concert tickets and studio time is covered by the project. Participants must cover their own transport to and from Berlin as well as for all meals. There are no participation fees.
