CTM 2016: New Geographies

Berlin’s CTM announces next year's festival theme to be New Geographies

New Geographies will be the theme of CTM 2016. It will aim to explore the relationship between local and global practices, regional identities, virtual spaces and the role these extended geographies play in contemporary music.

Now in its 17th year, CTM 2016 will be co-curated by the Lebanese born musician and founder of Morphine Records, Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis. The first wave of musicians and artists will be announced this October.

In the meantime CTM 2016 has put out two calls for works: Radio Lab is requesting submissions for pieces that explore hybrid radio formats; and the European Network For Contemporary Audiovisual Creation is looking for applicants for audiovisual residencies.

CTM 2016 will run from 29 January—7 February next year. More information can be found here.
