raster-noton »white circle« at BEAF

in celebration of its 20th anniversary and in collaboration with ZKM | karlsruhe, raster-noton presents the »white circle«, an acoustic-architectural space designed as an audiovisual installation. four artists of the label were invited to contribute an exclusive audiovisual composition: alva noto, byetone, frank bretschneider, and kangding ray.

each composition presents an independent, self-contained concept of the respective artist. all works are based on the idea of ambient music, a music that wants to make tangible the acoustic space as well as the visual stimulus.

»white circle« was exclusively conceptualized for ZKM's »klangdom« (sound dome) which is made up of 47 speakers distributed throughout the room. by means of the control software »zirkonium«, these speakers can be played, turning sound itself into a sculptural spatial experience.

as part of bozar's electronic arts festival (BEAF), raster-noton's »white circle« will be presented in brussels from september 22 to september 25, 2016.
