What radical changes in music will characterize the 21st century? On the occasion of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, one of the most innovative and influential composers of his epoch, the #bebeethoven project invites twelve young artists to explore such questions by developing, testing and presenting artistic experiments and projects. Together with project lead PODIUM Esslingen and six renowned partners – CTM Festival, Ensemble Resonance, Operadagen Rotterdam, Radialsystem V, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, and ZKM Karlsruhe – these twelve fellows will experiment with new technologies and develop aesthetic innovations. CTM Festival has invited Holly Herndon & Mat Dryhurst to become fellows. The duo will research and develop ideas to expand the human voice with future technology, and actively push forward critical discourse reflecting the implications of such technologies. A Berlin Kick-off event will take place Friday 6 October at Silent Green starting with an afternoon symposium that culminates with a concert in the evening.
