SOUNDS FROM ON THE BRINK: LIMINAL SPACES & ELECTRONIC MUSIC AT THE CTM FESTIVAL

SOUNDS FROM ON THE BRINK: LIMINAL SPACES & ELECTRONIC MUSIC AT THE CTM FESTIVAL

Even if you’re more of a home bird in January, a good reason to get out is the CTM Festival, which begins again this Friday (24.01.2020). This year’s title is “Liminal”, the ephemeral space located on different thresholds – those areas of transformation, transition and extreme. To help you make sense of the packed festival schedule, here are our highlights. Like every year, the group exhibition at Kunstraum Bethanien is a must: at Interstitial Spaces, various artists explore multi-dimensional spaces with videos, sounds, interactions, photographs and performances. In “You Will Go Away One Day But I Will Not“, Maria Thereza Alves and Lucrecia Dalt transform the Botanical Gardens into a sound-art piece that puts western botanical practices up for debate. CTM offers not just sounds, but structured electronic music too. We are especially looking forward to Icelandic cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir’s live performance of her award-winning soundtrack to the series “Chernobyl” and the Danish sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard, whose “Opus Mors” musical work studies the four phases of death. Sure not to disappoint, CTM is just the thing to lure you out the door even in the dreary winter weather. (Text: Hanna Komornitzyk / Photos: Voijd für CTM & Astrid Gnosis & Adrian Morillo)
