On the occasion of Loop – A Summit for Music Makers, which takes place 30 October – 1 November 2015 in Berlin, Ableton and CTM are teaming up for a concurrently running CTM x Ableton concert series at Kino Babylon, Prince Charles and the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW). Featuring artists such as James Holden, Holly Herndon, Mykki Blanco, Aïsha Devi, and Lorenzo Sennim the events celebrate Ableton and CTM’s long-standing partnership, which among other will deepen via new initiatives that support young, emerging artists. The concerts also launch the HKW’s TECHNOSPHÄRENKLANGE series which will run with curatorial input from CTM until 2018.
Four other residencies, supported via the European Network for Contemporary Audiovisual Creation (ENCAC), will also take place at other ENCAC partners from January - April 2016 with winning artists Ganzfeld (US), Alan Warburton (UK), Myriam Bleau (CA), and Tokuyama Tomonaga and Wladimir Schall (JP/FR).
CTM Siberia went far beyond our expectations. A huge thank you to our partners, especially co-curators and production managers Stanislav Sharifullin (Hmot) and Evgeniy Gavrilov (Dyad), and the Goethe-Institut Novosibirsk who initiated the project and made everything possible. It was a pleasure to discover the wide range of talent in the Siberian and Russian artistic community, and to welcome international artists into the deep exchanges that took place over the festivals in Krasnoyarsk and Novosibirsk. We look forward to continuing to tighten the friendships and links forged!
Over its first weekend, CTM Siberia hosts a special edition of Boiler Room in Krasnoyarsk, at the UIClub on Saturday 12 September. Running from 22:00– 2:00h local time (15:00–20:00 CEST), the event headlines Rabih Beaini, Love Cult, Novosibirsk's HMOT, and local acts Wheel and Appleyard. RSVP is now open. For those far away, the event will be livestreamed via Boiler Room’s website.

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.
