Transfer takes shape as an interdisciplinary laboratory and meeting ground for professionals and members of the general public.
The program bundles CTM’s daytime activities, including the Discourse series of panels, talks, and presentations; the MusicMakers Hacklab, a 6-day, open, collaborative environment in which participants learn about new technologies and get their hands on making their own musical inventions; workshops; the CTM Radio Lab; an Education Networking Day for graduate students and professors working in fields of audio, arts, media and related disciplines; the ICAS network speed-dating session for artists and professionals; installations n-polytope: Behaviours in Light and Sound after Iannis Xenakis by Chris Salter and Dick Raaijmakers's Ideofoon III; and two exhibitions - Sound Exchange: Experimental Cultures in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the Generation Z: ReNoise Exhibition which continues running after the festival, well into February.
With many events presented free of charge, the Transfer programme aims to intensify the exchanges between artists, musicians, cultural workers, music technology developers, researchers, students, and industry professionals.
Transfer is supported by the Initiative Musik Non-profit Project Company Ltd. with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media on the basis of a resolution passed by the German Bundestag, and by the Federal Agency for Political Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung)
