For this year’s edition of CTM, The Vinyl Factory contributes a collection of limited edition vinyl records by some of the most provocative practitioners working today – including Gazelle Twin, Moor Mother, Chino Amobi, and N.M.O.
During the festival, these records can be listened to at the Vinyl Factory's listening station in Kunstquartier Bethanien.
Gazelle Twin, the fleshy, gender-mutating project of Elizabeth Bernholz, will bring her JG Ballard-inspired audio-visual piece "Kingdom Come" to CTM 2017. Highlights from the work will be released on vinyl with art by Jonathan Barnbrook, the man behind David Bowie’s extraordinary Blackstar artwork.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia-based artist and activist Moor Mother, who plays the main hall at Berghain, will release The Motionless Present , her first new material since last year’s viscerally poetic protest album Fetish Bones.
The NON Worldwide showcase – a major highlight from this year’s CTM – is also represented via Chino Amobi with the soundtrack to choreographer Ligia Lewis’ minor matter, a performance piece that deftly articulates an argument for minoritarian politics.
The final 12″, titled Deutsch-Amerikanisches Fusswerk, will be delivered by experimental duo N.M.O. who last year released their debut album on Diagonal and will play at the festival alongside Lorenzo Senni, SØS Gunver Ryber, Lady Starlight, and more.
All four records are available for purchase from VF Editions:
