CTM's annual magazine provides a number of entry points into its theme, courtesy of various music journalists, researchers, theorists, and artists.
For Persistence, this year's magazine addresses the resilience of music communities; practices that push back against colonial legacies in music; the role of sonic cultures amidst tumultuous times; and activism in popular music. The 2019 edition unites a range of voices, practices, and ideas in interrogating, examining, and documenting various perspectives on Persistence. Interviews with and essays by individual artists round out the publication.
The CTM 2019 Magazine costs 9 € and is available in Berlin at Motto. Anyone outside Berlin can order the magazine online via the Motto Online Shop.
