Full length speech of Dr. Matthias Pasdzierny at the “Rave The Planet Parade 2022 – TOGETHER AGAIN” in Berlin. Unfortunately, he couldn’t be there in person, so his words were recited by his student Monika Jagodda. The speech was titled “Transformation Softpower” and was about the history and value of electronic music culture and set the point about the need for protection of the cultural form. Many thanks dear Monika and dear Matthias for being part of the first Rave The Planet Parade and powerful contribution!
DR. MATTHIAS PASDZIERNY – Musicologist, Berlin University of Arts Matthias studied school music, musicology and German studies in Stuttgart, Berlin & Krakow. In 2013, he received his doctorate with a dissertation on returnees from exile and West German musical life after 1945. Since 2007, he has been a research associate at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK). His research interests include techno culture.
We highly recommend the book “Techno Studies – Aesthetics and History of Electronic Dance Music”, which he wrote together with Kim Feser. Matthias also supported us in our project “Cultural Heritage: Techno.” and added a rousing cover letter to our UNESCO application. His speech will revolve around the history of electronic dance music culture.
