Future Soundscapes invites you on an audiovisual trip through time: Over four days, artists from the fields of music, media art and sound art will explore the history and present of futuristic sound between pop culture, music and technology. While the narratives and images of the sci-fi genre are already omnipresent and firmly anchored in the collective memory, Future Soundscapes makes sound tangible as an essential element in the design of future worlds – be it as noise, sound or music.
For the first time ever, !K7 Records will showcase all 10 editions from the landmark audiovisual X-MIX series, integral part of techno’s history, played non-stop and in chronological order. On view throughout the festival as exhibition at transmediale studio from September 22–25. And as installation with the visuals being projected onto the domed ceiling of the Kuppelhalle on September 24.
The audiovisual installation by experimental artist Ale Hop was conceived in a context of immobility, and imagines a hallucinatory travel along South American territories, through sound and visual vignettes created in collaboration with thirteen musicians around the world, and an AI tool used to “translate” and “misstranslate” speech into image, creating different temporalities and points of view.
Collaborating artists: Ana Quiroga, Concepcion Huerta, Daniela Huerta, Elsa M’bala, Felicity Magan, Fil Uno, Ignacio Briceño, KMRU, Manongo Mujica, Moises Horta, Nicole L’huillier, Raul Jardín, Sukitoa Onamau, Tomas Tello.
