unheard music archive berlin [umab]

umab is not virtual, umab is analog, object, thing, touch-able, physical, real... umab is a 100% non-profit project. The goal is to build a resource of unheard, non-commecial, experimental, free-improvised music.

The umab will be integrated into a sculptural, territorial, spatial and analog project. umab is a work in progress, public accessibility: end of 2015. umab works outside all conventional and established concepts and ideas. umab - a library for your ears.

Become part of the umab ollection. Send your recordings to contact. Each composer, musician will be listed, documented with name and short statement.
