Οpen Plan for Artists
An Athens Festival collaboration with Berlin’s CTM Festival and Goethe-Institut Athen. Aiming to highlight contemporary experimental and electronic music, the world-famous CTM has been established for the past 21 years as one of the most pioneering Festivals of its kind. This year, CTM will take Peiraios 260 by storm, inviting artists and audiences to participate in workshops, networking events, lectures, concerts and club nights, fostering dialogue between various forms of art and media, and transcending boundaries across musical and aesthetic genres.
Αντηχήσεις / Echoes
Electronic music composition artistic lab by Akis Sinos and Anke Eckardt
One of the projects originally announced as part of the 2020 Athens & Epidaurus Festival programme, Chronotopia is set to be included in the 2021 programme. Festival audiences will be given an online taste of things to come through an artistic lab aiming to highlight ‘echoes’, i.e. points of connection between past and present music via examinations of pre-modern musical forms and practices, focusing on media-archaeology research and archives. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct research at the Contemporary Music Research Center in Athens. Under the guidance of Greek composer Akis Sinos and German artist and researcher Anke Eckardt, each participant will be asked to compose an original work of electronic music drawing on archival pieces. The six original sound art pieces will be presented during the 2021 Athens Festival at Peiraios 260.
Number of participants: 6
Time frame: November – December 2020
