ICAS Radio live from Berlin’s Club Transmediale.

CYNETART curator Thomas Dumke will be guest during the radio programme “Zeit-Ton” at friday, 4th of february 2011, 23.03 o’ clock.

For more than ten years the Berlin based festival Club Transmediale has been an indicator for developments in the field of electronic music and clubculture. Of course the festival is an international meeting point for musicians, artists, producers and journalists. In 2008 Club Transmediale co-founded an international network of festivals, among others together with the ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst. The network is called ECAS, European Cities of Advances Sound, and has also been enlarged by now to the worldwide association International Cities of Advanced Sound ICAS.

Nine of the European festivals have gained EU-sponsorship for the time-span 2010 to 2015 for realizing the special project “ECAS – Networking Tomorrow’s Art For An Unknown Future”. During the first phase called “Festival as Lab” all festivals turn into laboratories, opening up social spaces for experimenting with art and music, thereby reflecting the early days of clubculture. And again Club Transmediale sets the first step. So tonight we join this festival for a three-hours broadcast for listening into live-music at three different venues in Berlin. Susanna Niedermayr and Christian Scheib, ORF radiojournalists and curators of the network-partner festival musikprotokoll, will lead through the night together with one of the three artistic directors of the festival Club Transmediale, Oliver Baurhenn. Several other curators and partners of the network “European Cities of European Sound” will join in. On the radio one might listen to this program in the program Ö1, Friday, February 4th, 11pm, via oe1.orf.at, and in Berlin also via reboot.fm.
