For 15 years CTM- Festival for Adventurous Music and Arts, has been bringing contemporary electronic music and experimental sounds together on both local and international grounds, in Berlin. Organised by DISK Berlin, CTM Festival is getting ready to kick off with numerous performances, workshops, exhibitions and more.
Focusing on innovative music and visual arts, CTM and sister festival Transmediale, are certainly amongst the seminal artistic happenings each year. Only last year around 200 participants from more than 33 countries presented 180 performances and presentations under CTM’s umbrella. In January 2015, for the 16th time, this independent project of innovative, contemporary arts brings extraordinary audio-visual experiences to its audience. CTM 2015- Un Tune will focus on the bodily responses to sounds and frequencies. The experience labs will be none other than some of the most outstanding venues of Berlin; including Berghain, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Stattbad Wedding, and Astra. Performances in the night time will leave their places to daytime activities such as exhibitions, screenings, panels and more.
