100 independent artists came together for one week to record, design, film, promote, mix, master and release Eric Eckhart's new album, all in front of an audience and all without spending ANY money at a former grocery store in Berlin.
DIT: Do-It-Together is a short documentary film about this unique, open source and powerful project that shows how independent artists can work together to build their own alternative music industry.

The last five years in my life were five of the best. That stemmed primarily from the wonderful, warm, creative people I met while living in Berlin. From them came a sense of community, of shared endeavour, and a constant buzz of inspiration.
It was those things that led to the formation of the artist collective, A Headful of Bees, and next week, my delightful and fabulously talented colleages are running Do It Together workshops as part of Berlin Music Week. So if you’re in town, why not go along and pick up a dose of that fantastic momentum that I got from these people? The underlying concept is learning how we as artists can be our own music industry. We’ve seen it work for the shining beacons of DIY/DIT like Amanda Palmer; find out it if can work for you!
5€ gets you into as many sessions as you want on the day (Friday the 7th for the Bees’ workshops), and to be sure you don’t miss out, you can pre-book your tickets here.
And then, to feed your inspiration further, why not check out a splendid assembly of Berlin’s finest singer-songwriters at Lovelite?
And if that’s not enough, there are special Berlin Music Week Sofa Salon living room concerts on the 5th and 7th! So much shiny in such a short time! Be sure to have some surgical-grade duct tape on hand, in case your heart explodes with delight!
