CTM 2019 – Third Wave of Artists & Projects Announced

CTM’s 20th birthday edition continues to crescendo. The Nusasonic initiative brings a slew of sonic pioneers, experimenters, and voyagers over from Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, and others. Gabber Modus Operandi, Kok Siew-Wai, Setabuhan, Pisitakun, Sarana, Zoo, and many more will venture through improvised noise, rock fusion, and gabber-tinged digital sarcasm. Död Mark, Yung Lean’s punk band with GUD, make their live debut, and Fatima al Qadiri gives a live rendition of her latest album, Shaneera. Croatian Amor performs on the eve of his Isa album release. LSDXOXO presents Floorgasm, a night including contemporary club mainstays Juliana Huxtable and Wallis. Berlin femme-forward, sex-positive queer collective Lecken presents a takeover at SchwuZ. Russian political provocateurs IC3PEAK provide a voice for a generation of frustrated youth. Singular voices such as innovative producer and vocalist Deena Abdelwahed, enigmatic noise duo Prison Religion, and club spiritualist TSVI round out an already extensive programme. Groundbreaking writers, theorists, and researchers including Robin James, Liz Pelly, and Brandon Labelle offer Discourse programme highlights.
