A Celebration of Walter Spies in Berlin

Walter Spies Society to Host Commemorative Lecture and Concert in Berlin on May 19, 2007.


(5/5/2007)

Born in Moscow in 1895, German musician-artist Walter Spies, landed in Ubud in 1927 where he lived until shortly before his death in 1942. A Renaissance man by any standard, Spies' limitless artistic energy managed to have a lasting impact on Balinese art, dance, music, documentary film-making and early anthropological studies of the Island.

Walter Spies was a musician, gifted painter, composer, choreographer, filmmaker and, above all, a keen observer of his adopted home of Bali. During the approximate 15 years he lived in Bali, Spies shared his unbridled enthusiasm for all things Balinese via his participation in landmark early film works on Bali and while playing host to the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Barbara Hutton, Noel Coward and Margaret Mead at his Ubud Home.

Born of German parentage in Moscow, Spies' early musical experience included Rachmaninoff and Scriabin encountered at house concerts held in his family's residence. Interred in the Urals during World War I, Spies eventually made his way to Berlin where he continued his musical education, seeking out avant-garde performers, encounters with whom were recounted in his diaries: "There in the house of my great friend Eduard Erdmann I met all the 'giants' - Busoni, Pfitzner, Schnabel, Hindemith, Krenek, Petyrek, and Haba."
