No time for century decay. I declare party – Berlin 2012

CTM.12 SPECTRAL

    I dig digital distortion. I glitch my art, I fart bits. What am I? 8 times i bit.

I speak no words here, i only use ones and zeros.

All I can hear is noise. I like it because i am a child of digi-topia.

Living in the digital world of disinformation (too many sources to suck from) the digital zone of comfort has fucked us all nicely, it MADE US TOUCH it THROUGH THE SCREEN. 

The futurists knew the machine will bring the beauty. The beauty of noise and feeling. We will feel the machine. It will contract our brain to 8-bit size, as the machine will think instead of us.

I touch my reality through the screen

The beginning of new year Berlin looks and sounds extremely loud:  Fashion Week, TRANSMEDIALE, CTM, BERLINALE.

Berlin certainly is all about fashion and design. Most of the people who come here, come to create their own style and ego. Fashion does not limit them in terms of size, material or concept. Berlin Fashion week is made to surprise(?), inspire(?) and spend big money.

When Fashion takes a break it is time for TRANSMEDIALE AND CTM.
CTM 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. Transmediale engages in reflective, aesthetic and speculative positions in between art, technology and culture (transmediale was founded in 1988 as VideoFilmFest, a side-project of the Berlin Berlinale’s ‘International Forum of New Cinema’.)
We cannot deny digital world, it is far more important than fashion, even though fashion is a part of digital world anyway. We are all part of the digital world. All we hear, see and feel is fully or partly digital. It is not much left from the reality when we were real. Sub-real, neo-real, cyber-real whatever you call it we smell like machine even when we are dead.
In a simple language. Transmediale explores various modern technology topics and CTM sings about them.

SPECTRAL

// Festival theme

A reversal is taking place on the fringes of today’s pop culture: drag, witch house, hypnagogic pop, hauntology, analog synthesizer music, neo-industrial, and drone music all focus on the energy of negativity and unconsciousness. Throughout these various styles one explores revisitations of past music and media and their unfulfilled utopias and dystopias, conjures eerie presences that rise from the deep material structures, and rejects the state of lively present with bitterness, euphoria or everything in between. Deceleration, decay, fumigation, noise, deformation, liquefaction, mystery, nostalgia, kitsch, emptiness, loss, withdrawal, the longing for transcendence, mundane alchemy, and xeno-communications are the buzzwords of an aesthetic that counters the relentlessness of hyper-capitalist production and its incessant demand for positive engagement. Parallels can be drawn to current protest movements, from Occupy Wall Street to Anonymous.
