Closing out the 2023 editions of transmediale and CTM festivals, Amnesia Scanner will premiere their new work „Strobe.rip“ in collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Freeka Tet. The combination of provocative aesthetics from two celebrated artistic projects fuses into an affecting narrative about isolation and survival within today’s collapsing ecosystems and information environments. At the core of their work is an interest in how the contemporary experience is mediated, including the ways in which listening to music and live performance is evolving as digital ecosystems are proliferating. With extremely detailed, 16k, fantasy vivid colours, and maximum texture, the concert will serve as the launch to a new collaborative body of work to be unleashed throughout 2023 via further live performances plus digital and physical releases on the lauded label PAN, in various formats.

Opening the night are Team Rolfes with „3-2-1 Rule,“ a VR-puppeted, motion capture avatar-ed, mixed-reality narrative project that will appear in a live stage adaptation at CTM. Directed by Sam Rolfes and written by spam poet Jacob Bakkila, the story follows Eris Wonderful, a memory hunter gig worker in a near-future metaverse. This manic AV mashup of real-time 3D avatar theatre, metaverse-parody games features an original score by Galen Tipton, a half-sardonic digital slapstick, half-hyperpop scream ballad.

Biographien

Amnesia Scanner are a production house as well as part-performing arts group, part-experience design studio informed by a unique perspective on technology and the way it mediates contemporary experience. Founded in 2014 by Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala, they focus on system vulnerabilities, information overload, and sensory excess, which has found them homes in both clubs and galleries. With multiple albums in their discography, they have presented work at art institutions such as ICA London, HKW Berlin, and the Serpentine Gallery Marathon in London.

Freeka Tet is a New York City-based digital artist and creative mercenary that works in the realm of experimental art. His practice combines objects, prosthetics and animatronics, hacking, coding and electronics, audio and video plunderphonics, bricolage, and performance-based work. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries such as Google IO, Mutek, La Gaité Lyrique, Benaki Museum, Fondation Cartier, and more.

Team Rolfes is an NYC-based, pioneering virtual performance studio and image house founded by directors Sam Rolfes and Andy Rolfes. Using on real-time animation with VR puppets, motion-captured abstract avatars, and viscerally intense imagery derived directly from the nuances of human motion, their practice has expressed itself across a spectrum of formats. They have worked with Lady Gaga, Danny Elfman, Holly Herndon, Danny L Harle, Netflix, Adult Swim.

CTM Festival 2023 – Portals

Sound and music open portals to other realities and to the experiences of others. As such they transport us to real, speculative, and imaginary worlds, which in turn always point back to the realities of their creators. These wormholes allow us to engage with utopian longings, the complex stories of social and artistic movements, alternative histories, collective identities, or deeply personal experiences. Yet in thinking about music as portals and practices of worldbuilding, one must inevitably also deal with questions of access and exclusion. CTM 2023 uses the metaphor of Portals as curatorial shapes through which the festival attempts to make contact with specific modes of experience, histories, communities, and speculative futures, as well as to reflect on the fundamental functions, preconditions, thresholds, and ethics of sound and music as gateways to other realities.
