Portals Editions is proud to present their second showcase, this time featuring guest artist, Damien Dubrovnik (DK), and introducing the next in line for vinyl release on Portals, Noumeno (IT), and our well-established collective member, Ketev (IL).
Damien Dubrovnik, the duo consisting of Christian Stadsgaard and Loke Rahbek, part of Copenhagen’s infamous Posh Isolation collective, return after their surprise performance at Berlin Atonal this past August, for a gut wrenching display of power electronics meets musique concrete with bodies pushed to physical extremes, on the back of their recent LP ‘Vegas Fountain’ (Alter / Posh Isolation).
Ketev (aka Yair Elazar Glotman) is a Berlin-based sound artist and interdisciplinary experimentalist focusing on electroacoustic composition, sound installations and sculptures. Yair’s sonic world produced under his own name stretches between icy and melancholic layers of sharp drone waves to haunting acoustic experimentation showcased by his recent release, “Études”, which explores the variety of resonance transmitted by a contrabass. He released recently on Subtext, Where To Now?, and Opal Tapes, and will churn out his signature syrupy, ethereal dungeon techno tapeloops.
Noumeno, a posthuman project born from the world of ideas while enacting the decay of the body, will transmogrify analog synthesis with brutal tools and fascinating results. He has a tape on Milan’s Haunter Records leading up to his ‘Exosomatic Artifacts’ 12″ on Portals Editions. This will be his Berlin debut.
Portals’ xorzyzt (Shaddah Tuum, UnReaL) will keep things in full tilt as the DJ for the night.
CTM is proud to present a Berlin Current showcase at First We Take Berlin (FWTB), featuring six artists from the initiative’s ever-growing roster. The new sound of the city – Berlin Current presents young, unconventional, and experimental pop music from Berlin. A two-day showcase presented by and within the Berlin Music Week, FWTB has invited different promoters and agencies to present their newest up-and-coming talent within diverse showcases within its programme.
Berlin’s reputation as a world music capital is undisputed. Creative minds from around the world have long flocked to the city in search of advantageous conditions for their work, radically expanding Berlin’s musical diversity. But what truly adventurous sounds and musics are currently arising from the city’s maelstrom of simultaneously sounding musical styles and cultures? With Berlin Current, CTM Festival puts an ear to the scene and presents new, future-oriented musical ideas from Berlin together with Berghain, Boiler Room Berlin, BLN.FM, No Fear of Pop, ICAS, and the Musicboard Berlin.
