The crew’s self-built sound system makes it possible to experience danceable reggae music the way it should be heard: loud and clear, with heavy bass and conscious messages. The Dub der guten Hoffnung crew follows the dream of bringing people together to live tolerance, love and respect. Today’s session is dedicated to Lee Scratch Perry, the infamous Jamaican godfather of dub music. Perry has also been a master of sampling, but what is less known is that he has also used the technique in the visual arts, as can be seen in the exhibition.

TGIF is an independent format that takes place at loose intervals at HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark. TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) is intended as a musical extension of the program and invites regionally as well as internationally active musicians to play live music in the exhibition spaces.
