WHAT IS A RESIDENCY?
Studio Richter Mahr’s residency programme invites artists and musicians to a hub of creative exploration. Offering a collaborative environment, it facilitates interactions among various disciplines against a backdrop of serene landscapes. Emerging talents have the chance to hone their skills, while established artists provide mentorship and depth to the creative process.
Throughout the year, Studio Richter Mahr opens its doors to developing artists, granting them access to its spaces for work production and career advancement. Although current residency spaces are occupied, prospective applicants can anticipate future opportunities by following our social media updates. The studio’s commitment to blending traditional and experimental art is supported by modern studios and inviting outdoor areas. The resulting environment fosters connections that extend beyond the residency, cultivating a vibrant artistic community.
Nala Sinephro — Caribbean-Belgian composer, producer and musician Nala Sinephro fuses meditative sounds, jazz sensibilities, folk and field recordings. Her musical practice is rooted in the study of frequency and geometry and guided by the premise that sound moves matter.
Anna Meredith — Anna Meredith (MBE) is a composer, producer and performer of both acoustic and electronic music. Her sound is frequently described as ‘uncategorisable’ and ‘genre-defying’ (The Guardian went with “majestic bangers”…) and straddles the different worlds of contemporary classical, art pop, techno, large-scale installations and experimental rock.
Cee Haines — or CHAINES — is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and multi-media artist. With a background in classical composition, as well as in contemporary electronic and electro-acoustic production, their music is deeply idiosyncratic. At times peculiar, bewildering, and haunting, and at other times demonstrating a bizarre sense of humour, its layered orchestration is built upon a dreamlike sonic architecture. In 2019, CHAINES received the PRS Foundation’s Oram Award for innovation in music and sound technologies, while their 2018 album The King won praise from the likes of FACT, The Wire, The Quietus, and Boomkat.
