The Berlin Modular Society twitch channel was created by Simon with the aim of providing some performance practice opportunities during the first Covid lockdown - and the longer term aim of organising events at venues like the Berghain Kanteen when possible. The name was chosen in homage to the New York Modular Society who were active on Twitch.

The artists performing at BMS1 were Monotrail, eddrro, ili.ili (his first live set ever), 3rd Party Influence and drusnoise. Everyone streamed from their own studio space except for Monotrail who streamed from Simon's kitchen - what a pleasure! The whole stream is available here: https://www.facebook.com/BerlinModularSociety/videos/794879054566646
