sonic experiments: telematics festival _13-14/12/2019

Lectures, panel discussions, workshops, installations and concerts on the topic of artistic telematic projects.

From 13 to 14 December 2019, the ZKM will be exploring state-of-the-art telematics projects as part of a two-day festival event. The simultaneous performance "Atlas, a Sound Cartography of Europe" with music by Carmine-Emanuele Cella, Dimitris Kamarotos and Valerio Tricoli as well as visuals by Marina Gioti has been developed in cooperation between IRCAM (Paris), Onassis Stegi (Athens) and ZKM as part of Interfaces and will be presented as a prelude to the event from 20.00 with free admission to the cube. On the following day, an artistic-scientific symposium, installations and audiovisual live performances await the audience. John Richards will be leading a workshop for Telematic Hacking and the final presentation of CECIA will take place as part of Interfaces Network.

How is today’s generation of artists dealing with networking possibilities of the new media and what desiderata do the artists pursue?

What interests could a composer have in working with telematic technologies or opening a composition to collaborative creative processes?
