In the age of digital and social media, we constantly receive multiple and often contradicting streams of information that shape our increasingly complex and contested realities. The CTM Radio Lab’s new KONTINUUM commission reflects this situation by offering a singular audio channel to be modulated by one artist (or team of artists) over the period of one year.
Since 2014, the CTM Radio Lab has been commissioning new works that explore the intersection of radio with live performance or installation within the context of the festival’s yearly theme. The initiative is led by CTM Festival and Deutschlandfunk Kultur – Radio Art / Klangkunst in collaboration with Goethe-Institut, ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst, Ö1 Kunstradio, and The Wire magazine.
The Creative Europe-supported SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art is announcing its 2019 list of artists. The artist selection for the platform’s fifth year traditionally places a number of audiovisual projects and sound artists alongside musical acts that range from post-grime and techno to free improvisation and acousmatic music. SHAPE is also happy to say that its 2019 roster is created with a 50:50 gender balance.
