Deutschlandradio Kultur – Radio Drama / Klangkunst and CTM Festival, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, the SoCCoS – Sound of Culture, Culture of Sound network, Ö1 Kunstradio, and ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst are pleased to release a third call for artistic projects seeking unusual ideas for coupling the medium radio with the potentials of live performance or installation, while also relating to the CTM 2016 Festival theme: New Geographies.
From January 29 - February 7, 2015, CTM 2016 – New Geographies aims to present a range of artistic forms from the present and recent past in order to explore the central roles that today's ever more globalized and digitized hybridity and relational geography plays in the global music scene. Including curatorial contributions from Rabih Beanini (aka Morphosis) and the Swiss-based the Norient network, the return of both the MusicMakers Hacklab and CTM Radio Lab, as well as the usual extensive daytime Discourse programme, New Geographies aims to provide the conceptual tools needed to approach the complexities of a polycentric, polychromatic, and increasingly hybrid (music) world with greater openness.
Following the first sold-out event, a second Sunn O))) show on 8 August is now confirmed. Sunn O))) will appear in their original duo line-up consiting of Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley, with supporting act Hildur Gudnadottir! Tickets on sale now.
Limited edition shirts designed by Holly Herndon x Metahaven x Jacob Appelbaum on the occasion of Herdon's June 2015 performance as part of CTM's Polymorphism series at Berghain. All proceeds will be donated to the Chelsea Manning Support Network.
Audiovisual researchers, practitioners, and creators are invited to apply to one of 5 residencies taking place within the European Network for Contemporary Audiovisual Creation (ENCAC). Deadline 12 August.
Recordings of most lectures and talks from the CTM 2015 – Un Tune discourse series are now archived on our soundcloud page, and available for streaming. These 15 hours of audio offer a broad and free-roaming discussion on the ramifications of CTM 2015's Un Tune theme from multiple perspectives of different artists, cultural theorists, and writers. Featuring Marcus Boon, Maire Thompson, Chris Salter, Brandon LaBelle, Andrew Pickering, Maria Witek, Annie Goh, Eleni Ikoniadou, Rupert Till, Paul Devereux, and many more.
For sixteen years, Sunn O))) have been challenging the way we think about music. In that relatively brief time, core members Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson have forged connections between the worlds of Metal, Drone, Contemporary Composition, Jazz and Minimalism with startling results while remaining true to the eternal principles of volume, density and weight. On August 9, 2015 they return to Berlin for the first time since their glorious show at CTM 2013. Tickets are on sale now.
