CTM 2017 Radio Lab


For the fourth year in a row, Deutschlandradio Kultur – Radio Art /

Klangkunst and CTM Festival – in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut,

ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst, Ö1 Kunstradio and the SoCCoS

network, and with the support of the British music magazine The Wire –

are delighted to commission two artistic projects. The call is for

unusual audio projects that couple the radio medium with the potential

of live performance or installation while also relating to the CTM 2017

Festival theme: FEAR ANGER LOVE.

The call is open to artists in the fields of experimental music, sound

art, radio art, new radio drama, and performance. The two commissioned

works will premiere in the form of an installation or live performance

at CTM 2017 Festival in Berlin (27 January – 5 February 2017), and then

be broadcasted in Deutschlandradio Kultur’s Klangkunst programme. The

Österreichischer Rundfunk (Austrian Broadcasting Corporation) will

subsequently present them via one or more of its platforms (depending on

the character of the works): the Ö1 Zeit-Ton or Ö1 Kunstradio radio

shows, and/or (in Autumn 2017), the ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen

herbst festival in Graz.

Proposed projects must explore the potential of combining radio and live

performance / installation within the FEAR ANGER LOVE thematic framework

of CTM 2017. They will be presented as a live performance or

installation as well as in the form of a 40–55 minute radio broadcast.

Prior to presenting their projects at CTM 17 respectively broadcasting

them on Deutschlandradio Kultur, the selected applicants will be invited

to round off the production phase with a 2-week short residency in

Berlin, realised in cooperation with SoCCoS – Sound of Culture, Culture

of Sound, a network project funded by the Creative Europe programme of

the European Union.

Last year’s winning projects, selected from over 300 entries, can be

enjoyed once more in Autumn 2016. The radio play „All Hail Mother

Internet“ from Tunisian artist Deena Abdelwahed will be presented 9

October as part of the festival ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst

and broadcast live via the Ö1 Kunstradio programme. The second piece,

„GAD Technologies“ by Marija Bozinovska Jones aka MBJ Wetware and J.G.

Biberkopf, will be broadcast 18 September, also via Ö1 Kunstradio.

The call is not subject to geographical restrictions – submissions

from artists from all over the world are encouraged. Each of the two

selected works will be awarded a 5,000 € fee plus production costs.
