CTM will collaborate with Dalston's NTS Radio to provide a live radio broadcast that extends the reaches of the festival's tentacles by giving CTM artists the chance to elaborate on their live sets in an informal context.
For the duration of the festival, NTS will be stationed at Where is Jesus? in Kreuzberg, from where they will be broadcasting two hours daily. For the first hour of each of these slots, the programming will consist of a feature or interview that delves deeply into the themes of one of the festival's concerts or exhibitions, or recordings of selected sets or talks from the festival's concert and discourse programmes. The second hour will give a chosen CTM artist free reign to play records or speak on a subject of interest, either alone or with friends or colleagues.
Additional live recordings will become available after the festival via Red Bull Music Academy Radio.
