CTM 2018 @ Säule – “Daemmerlicht” presented by Recondite
Daemmerlicht presented by Recondite
Daemmerlicht (fading light) is Recondite’s upcoming fifth album and new immersive live AV show, developed specifically for the cavernous space of Berghain’s Säule. The work guides listeners through Recondite’s suggestive interpretations of ambient, electronica, classical music, and hip hop oriented soundscapes. Contemplative violet and dark blue atmospheres unfold as nocturnal episodes of blurred vision and nebulous state of minds ahead of the light/dark to come. The Daemmerlicht LP will be released on Plangent Records in February and implements a different musical approach to the usual techno and house infused material Recondite is known for.
Since its early days, CTM Festival has featured music and art that acts as a mirror for social and political conditions. Our 2018 theme, Turmoil, builds on the insights of 2017’s Fear Anger Love, and continues its inquiry into the potential of sound and music to invigorate resilience and awareness at a time when we have begun normalising the ongoing barrage of political, social, and environmental crises and the resulting disquiet that resonates through our on- and offline lives.
CTM 2018 Turmoil explores the state of music and sound practice in the face of a confusing and critical present: What is the sound of turmoil? What are aesthetics of tumult? Which other sonic and musical responses could we conceive of to counter the current overload of agitation? As it inquires into these questions, this CTM edition also renews and strengthens a commitment to welcoming a wide range of artists and audiences with diverse backgrounds.
From 26 January – 4 February 2018, CTM 2018 returns to its constellation of exciting nightlife and cultural venues in Berlin, including HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, YAAM, and Festsaal Kreuzberg.
