INTRODUCING DISK AGENCY

We have long put our broad range of skills at service to support likeminded cultural projects. Now we've decided to recap these activities under a common roof: Combining 15 years of experience developed from organizing Berlin's annual CTM Festival as well as through the projects and operations of the festival's host organization DISK Berlin, DISK Agency aims to further encourage the production and diffusion of experimental sound art, innovative music, and visual arts, as well as to sustain DISK's longstanding relationship with likeminded festivals, venues, concert agencies, cultural bodies, and local and international nonprofit initiatives.

CTM 2015 - UN TUNE

The 16th edition of CTM - Festival for Adventurous Music and Art, will take place January 23 - February 1, 2015 and returns to diverse venues such as HAU - Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, and Stattbad.

Under the title Un Tune, CTM 2015 aims to engage with the direct bodily effects of frequencies, sound, and music, as well as these phenomena’s synergistic effects with other sensory stimuli. Artistic experimentation with the affective and somatic effects of sounds and frequencies opens up possibilities of tuning and de-tuning the composite that interconnects body, matter, energy, and (musical) machines – and of exploring our perception. More information on the theme here.

The festival’s mix of concerts and club events will once again be supported by an extensive daytime programme of talks, workshops, exhibitions, and more. As always, CTM festival will be held parallel to and in collaboration with transmediale – festival for art and digital culture, which takes place from 28 January – 1 February 2015 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

The first CTM 2015 artist announcement will be published in October. In the meantime, we invite interested artists to submit proposals to the CTM 2015 Radio Lab call for works exploring hybrid live/radio formats.

Artists are also invited to submit ideas and proposals for festival performances or presentations via our general email. Please note that we are unable to reply to all inquiries due to the high volume of emails received.

DISK COLLABORATES ON TWO PROJECTS TO BE PRESENTED AT ORF MUSIKPROTOKOLL IM STEIRISCHEN HERBST

October sees two projects supported by DISK visit the ORF musikprotokoll im Steirischen Herbst festival. Both ICAS network projects, the artistic works were commissioned by the framework of ECAS – Networking Tomorrow‘s Art for An Unknown Future.

In Search of the Future of Radio

What surprises does radio hold in store for us? Radio activists and artists in Graz team up with ∏-node to create a multi-dimensional radio infrastructure platform that explores the narrative, participative, and imaginary possibilities of radio through the use of both historic and new, digital technologies.

One of the winners of the CTM 2014 Radio Lab call for works, ∏-node have continued their work since the project's premiere showing in Berlin this past January. The latest iteration of the platform will set-up residence for the duration of the musikprotokoll festival, as a temporary social space where visitors are given free rein to their creativity. The group of local and ∏-node artists/activists will experiment with a wide range of cutting-edge and older technologies with the aim of enabling reflection on the basic historical and societal conditions of radio.

Let's Merry-Go-Round!

The carousel – an object of yearning from childhood days. Once in motion, its centrifugal force elicits screams of joy. Although the carousel at musikprotokoll looks like the ones in days of old, every ride takes you to a different acoustic present and, at the same time, to a new world of sound. The pieces can only be heard and felt while our bodies are revolving.

A work created within the ECAS (European and International Cities of Advanced Sound) project, the carousel has seen artists from all over create works for its special environment. CTM has been invited by partner festival musikprotokoll to contribute to setting the carousel in musical motion. In turn, CTM has sought-out sound and video artist Pierce Warnecke to join into this merry-go-round for advanced players.

∏-node was selected via 2014's “Ubiquitous Art and Sound” open call co-commission, a collaboration between Deutschlandradio Kultur – Hörspiel/Klangkunst, Goethe-Institut, ICAS, ECAS, musikprotokoll, and CTM Festival.

Commissioned by musikprotokoll within the framework of ECAS – Networking Tomorrow‘s Art for An Unknown Future, working period 4 “Tools For An Unknown Future”. In cooperation with Skaņu Mežs, Insomnia, Cimatics, TodaysArt, Unsound, CYNETART, FutureEverything & CTM Festival.

CTM 2015 RADIO LAB - CALL FOR WORKS

Following a great response to last year’s open call for works, Deutschlandradio Kultur – Hörspiel/ Klangkunst and CTM Festival, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst, Ö1 Kunstradio and the ECAS/ICAS networks, are pleased to release a second call for artistic projects seeking unusual ideas for coupling the medium radio with the potentials of live performance or installation, while also relating to the CTM 2015 Festival theme: Un Tune – Exploring Sonic Affect.

The call is open to artists in the fields of experimental music, sound art, radio art, new radio drama, and performance. Two chosen commissioned works will be presented as a Deutschlandradio Kultur – Klangkunst broadcast and premiered as a performance or installation at CTM 2015 Festival in Berlin (23 January – 1 February 2015). The works will also be presented by the Österreichischer Rundfunk (Austrian Broadcasting Corporation) via one of their platforms (depending on the character of the works): the ORF Zeit-Ton or Ö1 Kunstradio radio shows, or the ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst festival in Graz.

Proposed projects should result in 40-55 minute long radio versions.

A special note that last year’s winning projects, selected from over 300 submissions, will once again be presented live in the fall of 2014 as a performance or radio broadcast. The French radio collective ∏-node will partner-up with local radio activists and artists during the ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst festival, to create an experimental radio laboratory in the festival’s host city of Graz, Austria (7–12 October). On 10 October the group will visit the studio for a live broadcast on Ö1 Zeit-Ton extended.

REVIEW: CTM 2014 - DIS CONTINUITY

The 15th anniversary edition of CTM took place from 24 January – 2 February 2014 in various Berlin venues including HAU – Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, Stattbad, West Germany, Where is Jesus? Temporary Space, and Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien.

Entitled Dis Continuity, CTM 2014 focused on hidden connections between past and present musical experimentation by fostering dialogue between musical pioneers whose ideas and discoveries continue to influence how we create and experience music today, and a rising young generation of artists. Adopting a less hierarchical approach, Dis Continuity reconstructed and re-imagined select threads of experimental and electronic music history. Thus it illuminated and contributed to a gradual evolution towards an increasingly open and dynamic concept of music that transgresses the barriers between scientific research, art, pop, academic culture, and various forms of artistic practice.

Widespread access to archival materials currently sparks new, creative ways of interacting with the past that challenge concepts of history and how it is transmitted. The 10-day CTM 2014 festival could at best only begin to convey an idea of how we can play with and (re)shape the ways that individual and collectives stories and ideas can be relayed.

Over 200 artists and professionals from 33 different countries contributed to over 180 performances and projects that made up the CTM 2014 programme, which also included an 8-day Transfer programme that encompassed the Discourse series of artist talks and film screenings, a collaborative MusicMaker’s Hacklab for music technology, contributions from Universities via performances and an Education Networking Day. The 15th edition featured several premieres of commissioned works, either through CTM’s new Berlin Current programme or through the CTM 2014 Radio Lab. This edition also hosted an installation and exhibition, both of which ran long past the festival.

As always, the CTM festival was held in parallel to and in collaboration with transmediale – festival for art and digital culture which took place at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The weekend before the festivals, CTM and transmediale’s P2P Vorspiel.

Festival documentation of the festival can be found via the CTM 2014 Press Review, the CTM 2014 Flickr Gallery, and through a collection of audio exceprts, videos, and photos posted by collaborators and friends.

ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS OF THE UBIQUITOUS ART & SOUND CALL FOR WORKS

Awarded by Deutschlandradio Kultur/Klangkunst, Goethe-Institut, ICAS – International Cities for Advanced Sound, ECAS – European Cities for Advanced Sound, and CTM festival, the “Ubiquitous Art and Sound” Open Call for works sought unusual ideas for pairing the specific artistic possibilities of radio with the potentials of live performance or installation, that also explores the omnipresence of sound in our everyday lives.

First of all, the above organizers would first like to thank everyone who took the time to submit their proposals, which totalled an impressive of 292 submissions from 49 different countries, and collectively addressed the call’s themes and challenges from a wide and interesting array of perspectives. The two final chosen proposals stood out in their approach of combining radio and live performance, as well as for their spirit of inclusiveness and collaboration. The experimental nature of both projects leaves much to the imagination, and we look forward to witnessing how they develop into their final presentations.

The first selected proposal, entitled Π-Node, comes from the French network of artists and hackers affiliated with projects such as Dorkbot, Le Placard, and Artkillart among others. Gathering international media artists and radio activists at the CTM Festival in Berlin and the musikprotokoll festival in Graz, the network proposes to produce an alternative Internet & radio hybrid broadcast system that explores and rethinks the radio format at the age of the Internet. The project’s open participation system also invites festival audiences/the general public to interact with radio emitters and transceivers hidden throughout various festival venues and locations, effectively using Berlin and Graz as checkerboards of a urban radio game. As explained by Susanna Niedermayr (ORF Ö1 / musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst): “P.Node creatively uses and presents a vast variety of different technologies and examines their interconnectivity, while questioning the role of radio itself. Both the strong cooperative character of the project and its openness provide the possibility to connect likeminded networks, bringing local artists in touch with likeminded artists from other countries.”

The second selected project, Walk That Sound, by Serbian artist Luka Ivanovic (alias Lukatoyboy), uses the commonplace yet often forgotten walkie-talkie to create a moving urban sound portrait. The project plays with the array of available and free frequencies, and the almost unlimited amount of users that can interact over these different channels, to capture crackling dialogues ranging from the banal to extremely urgent, as well as the multitude of sounds captured by chance while participants rove around the city as “mobile scouts”. “Luka Ivanovic proposes a unique way of coupling radio transmission and live performance by initiating an audio circuit with handheld walkie talkies. This basic radio technology incites an unusual artistic communication through and about sound.” - Marcus Gammel (Deutschlandradio Kultur)

These two works will be presented both as a Deutschlandradio Kultur and ORF Ö1 broadcast, as well as a program within the CTM Festival in Berlin (24.01.-02.02.2014), and the ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst festival in Graz (Autumn 2014).

The jury consisted of:

Marcus Gammel (Editor for sound art and radio drama Klangkunst/Hörspiel at Deutschlandradio Kultur)
Susanna Niedermayr (ORF Ö1 / musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst)
Jan Rohlf (Artistic & Managing Director, CTM Festival)
Patti Schmidt (Curator, MUTEK Festival)
Chris Bohn (Editor, The Wire)
Thomas Köner (Artist)

For all club music whether in Europe, the USA, Japan or Oceania has fragments of African DNA deeply inscribed in its genetic material. But what happens if we try to connect the descendants with their ancestors and cousins from the African mother country of repetitive beats?

The Wax Treatment Africa Special, brings this family – old and young – together for two days on a dance floor, talking, eating and dancing together. DJs and live acts old and new interlace fresh beats from African countries with the club culture of the West - Roots and Wire. Featuring interview panels with musicians and label makers, activists and leaders discussing their work. Films, record sales, West African and Caribbean food. An evocation of the ancestors, equipped with the deadliest beats in the current club scene.
