We are launching our first ever Limited edition double-LP!!!

Hello, friends, family, and supporters of Kepler, 

This is Ma li. I am very excited to announce the release of our special edition Kepler album. It consists of the best tracks of Kepler artists from around the world, titled:  八仙过海, 各显神通. (Ba Xian Guo Hai, Ge Xian Shen Tong - 8 gods crossing the sea; each demonstrating their unique superpower. )

Borrowing the meaning from a Chinese idiom of a folklore, the story is a metaphor for the community we have successfully established—a community of talented, powerful individuals that genuinely support each other in their highest pursuit—a community of collective-individualism.

When I first initiated the project in Feb 2017 in Berlin, I never could have imagined what would happen in the following two years: 14 events, 6 cities, more than 60 members, countless productions of videos, music and performance, and all the beautiful moments, charged with the most positive energy. Wherever we went in the world, we have successfully and consistently created spaces with a unique Keplerian essence that could raise the vibration and frequency and inspire a personal and collective transformation!

Some of you have supported me and my work since the very first moments, some of you joined the journey along the way. Wherever you are, I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Your love and support is the only thing that keeps us going. While the world is our own perception, you being with us completes our own utopian imagination to be able to live on Kepler already while we are still on earth.

We closed the chapter 1 of Kepler 452b with our debut album made with heart and soul AND our upcoming album release event, The Sound of Intergalactica—the most otherworldly experience we could create for you. It is an homage to this journey and to every single creative soul who has contributed to the project.. 

The History of Kepler 452b

Kepler 452b started as a sixteen-hour immersive event combining art, performance, installation, fashion, music and dance party. Using the metaphor of space migration, our event creates a venue for envisioning possible futures – of openness, collective action, inclusion, self-expression and collective-individualism.

Discovered by NASA in 2015, Kepler 452b is a potentially habitable super-Earth that is 1,400 light years away. In order to transport people from the Planet Earth to Kepler 452b, the Keplerians orchestrate interactive dreamlike experiences. Along with a line-up of DJs and live music, a series of performances are carried out together with the audiences. Since 2017 Kepler 452b has launched major events in Berlin, Tel Aviv, Shanghai, San Francisco, Jerusalem and Tbilisi….

Be Part of the Kepler Journey

The success of the Kepler community is the result of collective wisdom and action from a group of extraordinary powerful individuals. Along the journey they contributed with their artistic talent, time, resources and their exceptional positive energy. We are grateful for our last kickstarter campaign one year ago, that not only helped us fund our project, but also connect us to wonderful individuals who have joined the community through the kickstarter campaign and worked with us closely ever since.

As a young project launching its first album, I have no doubt that Kickstarter is the best way for us to spread the word, distribute our album and give the Kepler resident DJs the opportunity to share their hard work with a wider audience. In the end it is a collective dream, we want to make it come true. And it can not be more real at this point of the project. We have an ambitious plan for the chapter 2 of Kepler, including the second Kepler center for artist residency and retreat, Kepler art school, and of course more events in different major cities that need the Keplerian spirit!

As an artistic AND humanist project, we are experimenting with our token exchange skill sharing platform, and futuristic family and education structure. We want to establish a platform that supports authentic self-expression at any stage of your artistic development. At the same time, it fulfills the wishes of a futuristic humanist society we dream inhabit. By backing our project, you become a friend and supporter of our community. You will be invited to ALL our events, gatherings, and Performance Labs. You will also be the first ones to know about our behind the scenes stories and future planning as well as have the opportunity to get involved with activities and projects that excite you.

Our debut album is a limited-edition no repress double-LP that consists of the 9 best tracks from Kepler artists from around the world. Along with the album, we are releasing short films, behind the scene footages, and music videos of Kepler moments—a special visual album only made for Kickstarter supporters. The album cover is a print of an original drawing by Ma Li that could be hung as a picture and used as a colouring page.

The Original Drawing by Ma Li

After making so many events around the world, I still never consider myself as a promoter. As the founder and art director of the project, the most important thing for me is to make sure Kepler exists as a pure artistic project without any commercial goal. With an MFA in painting, my strongest artistic practice is actually drawing, sculpture, and site-specific installation. And I am proud to present a series of drawing inspired by Kepler that depicts an idyllic spring where hundreds of flowers blossom and hundreds of schools of thoughts can blossom in a free world.. 

By backing the project you have the opportunity to obtain drawing by yours truly. And without a doubt the ones who have been supporting my artistic pursuit since day one are the strongest supporters of Kepler! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Techno Tai Chi is the philosophy of the community as well as a great personal tool to learn about energy, vibration, and frequency. This in-depth one-on-one training session with Ma Li will tailor to your energetic needs, topics include energy transmutation, how to raise the vibration and frequency, how to reach our highest authentic self-expression etc.

The lesson can be conducted at a reachable energetic point or at your familiar environment. We will align schedule and make it happen within the following months, during one of our trips. It can also be broken down to three one-hour online sessions based on special needs.
