Participants applications for the CTM 2014 MusicMakers Hacklab are still being accepted through December 15. The a weeklong open, collaborative laboratory hosted by Peter Kirn of CDM and sound artist Darsha Hewitt allows practitioners from a range of disciplines to reconnect with the work of early pioneers in a new context. Participants will get the chance to mix rediscovered analogue and electronic techniques with new, still-evolving digital processes connecting to the Generation Z: ReNoise exhibition.
Within the Transfer programme, the Education Networking Day scheduled for Saturday, February 1st, 2014, invites students, professors, and researchers from graduate and posgraduate programmes traversing the fields of audio, arts, media, design, and related theoretical disciplines to present programmes, projects, and activities.
Following last month’s initial unveiling of CTM 2014 programming, we’re pleased to announce the second wave of artists and projects confirmed for the festival’s 15th anniversary edition, taking place January 24 – February 2, 2014 in Berlin.
CTM.14 will feature the performance-installation "N-polytope: Behaviours in Light and Sound After Iannis Xenakis": a spectacular light, sound, and architectural environment by Chris Salter, in collaboration with Marije Baalman and Thomas Spier. The installation combines cutting-edge lighting, lasers, sound, and sensory and artificial intelligence software technologies inspired by composer Iannis Xenakis’ radical 1960s-1970s works, “Polytopes”.
The Generation Z: ReNoise exhibition at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien assembles rare original early sound equipment and explores the fate of researchers, sound experimentalists, and inventors active during a Russian period of revolution, war, and dictatorship in the early 20th century.
