Gaby & Ben
Gaby and Ben head up The Open Music Lab (OML), a non-profit collective at Give Something Back To Berlin. OML believe music creation needs safer, accessible spaces where cultural differences are celebrated. It's a space where anyone can learn how to create, record, and share. OML offers free music workshops committed to including and supporting refugees, asylum seekers, people who identify as female*, non-binary and LGBTQI+ and people of colour. Earlier this year OML released a compilation by workshop students, with all profits from the release going straight back into the project. The compilation, 'Redox', featured seven students who attended free music production workshops run by OML. Guest tutors at the lab have included Mary Anne Hobbes, Nathan Micay, UVB and Commix's George Levings.
