CTM _ club transmediale is a prominent international festival dedicated to contemporary electronic, digital and experimental music, as well as the diverse range of artistic activities in the context of sound and club culture. Since 1999 it takes place concurrently and cooperatively with the transmediale- international festival for art and digital culture, Berlin.
CTM's aim is to present the most outstanding international productions in adventurous, experimental and electronic music and audiovisual performance, as well as to reflect recent artistic and technical developments in panels, screenings and presentations.
CTM presents projects that experiment with new aesthetic parameters and new forms of cooperation, develop possibilities for informational and economic self-determination, and reflect on the role of contemporary music against the backdrop of technological and social transformations. Now more than ever, music emerges as a laboratory for multiform experiments and as an active agent that allows for new cultural techniques to be tested and proffered to the wider world. CTM puts the focus on direct experience, risk-taking and personal interaction, and thereby emphasizes the situational potential of live performance, the interplay of various media - sound and image, in particular - and candid exchange between sub-cultural and academic initiatives.
