Berlin’s CTM Festival reveals first names for 2015
Alec Empire, Craig Leon, Emptyset and Peder Mannerfelt are among the first names announced for the Berlin festival’s 16th edition.
Undoubtedly Berlin’s premier festival of experimental music, CTM will next year reach its 16th edition, with a host of names descending on multiple venues across the city between January 23 and February 2. The theme for the 2015 festival is “Un Tune”, with a press release explaining the festival “aims to engage with the direct bodily effects of frequencies, sound, and music, as well as these phenomenaʼs synergistic effects with other sensory stimuli.”
The first acts announced for the festival include a collaborative A/V performance between Atari Teenage Riot co-founder Alec Empire and video artist Zan Lyons, and Craig Leon, who will be performing his seminal synth work Nommos together with an acoustic ensemble. The festival also sees Sweden’s experimental talent represented by Peder Mannerfelt and Klara Lewis, while Emptyset will represent the UK alongside Simian Mobile Disco, who will be performing their Whorl show.
Full details on tickets and line-up – which also includes Norweigian artists Jenny Hval and Susanna, Soundwalk Collective with Nan Goldin and Gazelle Twin – can be found at the official CTM Festival website, along with further information on the theme and host venues, which include Berghain, HAU Hebbel am Ufer and Stattbad. Further additions to the line-up will be made coming months.
