FLUX Festival presents seven days of concerts and talks from 30 solo artists of the current Berlin experimental electro-acoustic music scene. In the last 20 years an incredibly multi-faceted & adventurous experimental music scene has evolved in Berlin. The scene currently consists of several generations of protagonists and a vast stylistic spectrum ranging from Improvised Music, Free Jazz, Echtzeitmusik, Electronica, Noise, Sound Art, Electro-Acoustic Music to composed Contemporary Music with fluent crossovers into the vital club scene (Electronica, Techno, Dubstep, Breakcore, Ambient).
FLUX Festival will present a one-week festival of new pieces and works from some of the most important players of this vibrant music scene. Each afternoon, invited artists will give a short lecture talking about their working methods and musical approaches. Evening concert sets follow where artists present new pieces commissioned especially for the festival. With 4-5 sets nightly and a maximum duration of 25 minutes per performance, the festival surveys a mosaic-like overview of the current experimental electronic music scene in Berlin. We aim to present the scene in all its complexity with the intention to build evenings of diverse, contrasting music. As a venue we have chosen Spektrum in Neukölln – a rather small and compact room with an intimate and concentrated listening situation. The program can be seen as both inventory and retrospective of 20-25 years of electro-acoustic music in Berlin. All concerts will be recorded and we are planning to release a CD-Box of the entire festival.
