Maria am Ostbahnhof, Berlin, DE
At the moment I’m heading over to Berlin by train, to check out Club transmediale which is an experimental platform for innovative and experimental music and for media art in the context of sound- and club culture. Founded in 1998, club transmediale cooperates with the international media art festival transmediale and annually realizes a several day festival held simultaneously with the transmediale festival. Our Cell Phone Disco is one of the media art installations presented at this year’s club.
Under this year’s motto, BUILDING SPACE the main program focus of CTM.07 will investigate how music and the interplay of sound and moving images can create new dimensions in our experience of space. Once again, the CTM Festival’s approach is interdisciplinary and intensive: media arts. meet experimental music. Besides questioning the synergy of sound and image (the sensuous, physical and technical basis of our experience of space and its configuration) the focus is also on imaginary, cultural, political and social spaces and the ways they overlap.
For 10 days concerts, club sets, AV-performances, installations, screenings and debates will throw light on current issues around music brewed and bubbling in the melting pot: oblique underground, Leftfield music, radical Noise, media culture, Improv, New Music, visual arts and club sounds.
