Together with the Brotfabrik Theater Bonn, Taxi MunDJal MusiX runs the "World
BEAThoven Project", a socio-ecological transformation vision on behalf the 250th
birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven (BTHVN2020).
On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of nature enthusiast, humanist, visionary
and composer genius Ludwig van Beethoven in year 2020, an international network
of musicians and electronic music producers under the management and idea of
geographer and cultural manager Darius Darek (Taxi MunDJal MusiX) has
implemented sustainable, degrowth and minimalism oriented, fair, green, common-
good-oriented and alternative ways of life in one music project. This is a
transdisciplinary designed artivism towards a socio-ecological transformation:
- collaboration with fifteen Cologne-Bonn-based musicians of diverse music
cultures (other than of western classical music) to record a sample databank of
twenty known and unknown Beethoven pieces.
- upcycling / remixing of almost forgotten music by over twenty worldwide
electronic music producers.
- samples and remixes are under creative commons licence and can be used and
listened to for free (CC BY-NC-SA).
- presentation of the remixes at green, transformational and zero waste festivals,
in cultural spaces, at intergenerational bicycle rides or in "freeboxes“ (thus
supporting the visibility of these socio-ecological projects through music)
