The work of Sebastian and Daniel – “an extraordinary piece of music” according to BBC’s Mary Anne Hobbs – is marked by contrasts as well the idea of crossing musical barriers: in search of a shared language, their project CEEYS was born in East-Berlin.
The brothers studied classical music at academies in Berlin and Leipzig. Both have been featured on numerous releases. Sebastian has collaborated with Ólafur Arnalds and Viktor Orri Árnason on a virtual instrument for Spitfire Audio, he is part of Erased Tapes’ I+I=X and Masayoshi Fujita’s BOOK OF LIFE with whom he only recently toured Germany.
With their music, CEEYS not only reveal a dialogue between artist and instrument but also revive experimental approaches from the GDR – but always with a light tone of humour.
