A night collectively hosted by CTM and transmediale weaves together music, sound, and intermedia performance. With his performance lecture Chthonia, sound artist and researcher Wesley Goatley presents a conversation between Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri, who expose their hidden politics and the limitations of the AI technologies that shape them (featuring visual art by Sougwen). ECHO FX, by The Demystification Committee, replays the Brexit vote through echoes of misinformation spread through networks with the aim of inflating the pound, rendering these events in an A/V performance. The complex entanglement of bodies, sex, technology, and plastics is the subject of Johanna Bruckner’s dance and media performance Sym-poetic Desires xin mangles and strangles fragments of neurofunk, hardcore, and dubstep, as heard on their debut LP, Melts Into Love. Patiño & Schuttel premiere a new, especially commissioned spatial work titled No Laughing Matter, exploring laughter in relation to bodily presence and acousmatic sound. emptyset, the duo of Paul Purgas and James Ginzburg, presents a live version of Blossoms, their recent album for Thrill Jockey, which manifests their collaborations with machine learning systems.

In Säule, Hong Kong electronic underground protagonists Absurd Trax present a collaborative night with Berlin’s radically contemporary design collective Selam X, featuring sets from T0C1S, ava*, Nerve, FOTAN LAIKI, ASJ, Thegn ft. Dis Fig, Kelvin T, and Alexmalism.
