    Synergy is an interaction of different elements, that with combined forces can create something greater than on their own. In this context it is a beautiful union of music and​ ​freedom,​ ​that​ ​bring​ ​people​ ​together,​ ​ignoring​ ​boundaries,​ ​stamps​ ​and​ ​nations.
     
    Whether or not music is a “universal language” is a question that has been debated throughout history. One might say this phrase has been touted so often, it has become a cliché. However, one can not deny the fact that music communicates on levels, of which semantic language can not. It is an essential part of what all people share.​ ​We​ ​all​ ​belong​ ​to​ ​music.
     
    In​ ​music, ​there​ ​are​ ​no​ ​borders,​ ​apart​ ​from​ ​the​ ​pause​ ​and​ ​space​ ​for​ ​applause.
     
    Let us take you on a journey through different rhythms and cosmic melodies that will make​ ​your​ ​heart​ ​feel​ ​at​ ​home​ ​wherever​ ​you’re​ ​from​ ​and​ ​where​ ​you’re​ ​going​ ​to.
     
    The night will consist of a concert, curated jam session, and a party with DJs ​that through their selection and state of mind reflect the ideals that we collectively cherish. ​We’re inviting all of you to collectively sing, dance and to listen to the sounds​ ​filled​ ​with​ ​diversity.

    NAWA BAND
    Founded in 2014, Nawa is a cooperation of Berlin-based musicians from Palestine, Syria, Italy, Greece, Poland, US. The instrumental line-up consists of: the Arabic lute/oud, the violin, the oriental flute/nay, the contrabass and various forms of percussion. Nawa aims at contributing to the popularity of classical ​Arabic and Turkish chamber music, a genre very little known in the West. Central to all kind of oriental musical forms is the Taqsim: a structured, mode-based instrumental improvisation which focuses on rhythmic and melodic patterns in order to explore modes and modulations. Together with the structured musical forms, it creates a highly dynamic and lively listening experience, very much alike to western improvisation​ ​genres.

    INFO
     
    LUC LE TRUC
    With his Hamburg based francophil “Je Danse Donc Je Suis”-parties, Luc Le Truc made a 13 years long warm-up for giving you some ARROGANCE. Meanwhile he made stopovers i.a. at the Plötzlich or Fusion Festival and Clubs like Golden Pudel. The frenchymusicmadness started back in the 90s with the synthpopboygroup Les Frères Checkolade and the still existing radioshow “multiplication de l’amusement” on FSK 93,0. Trippy, hypnotic, hot like you and cold as ice, but most important: with attitude – this is how Luc Le Truc likes it and this is how his track selection will be for ARROGANCE.
     
    //
     
    M.A.R.E.C
    Some say, French hip-hop is the second best in the world, French people say its the N°1… You’ve heard of the classic ones, he’s been around the block digging the old and new ones you haven’t heard. From sampling-wave-instrumental beats to electro-rap-beats he’s putting together a playlist that will make you ask yourself if you wouldn’t be secretly understanding what french people say in your dreams.
     
    //
     
    JOE NIGHT
    A guy named Johnny claims to light the fire… Joe Night will extinguish it with a good cold French wave from “Demain Berlin” (Guerre Froide) and “Cherchez le Garçon” (Taxi Girl) to “Bosphore” (Grand Blanc) and “Si un jour” (La Femme)… Joe Night will serve you some dark, romantic and melancolic new/synth wave with a pinch of French electronic music. FFO: Jacno, Position Parallèle, Guerre Froide, Trisomie21, Grand Blanc…

    Since 2013 CTM Festival’s Berlin Current initiative puts an ear to the city’s growing diversity of sound and showcases the next generation of adventurous musicians and producers at the intersections of leftfield pop, new hybrid club styles and experimental electronica. Evolving without attachment to notions of fixed geographical identity, the initiative supports a fluctuating group of Berlin-based musicians through commissions, gigs and showcases in Berlin and abroad in order to nurture a fluid panoply of musical voices in Berlin.
     
    Be they new to the city or longtime residents, these diverse musicians all contribute to moments in time in a city in flux. This Berlin Current night at ACUD MACHT NEU, a collective art space that also hosts CTM’s office, brings together a kaleidoscopic array of adventurous Berlin sound, showcasing the imaginary. avant-garde folk of Perera Elsewhere, the fragile yet blissful pop/club hybrids of Mechatok, who will present his first ever live set, and the free roaming DJing of Linnéa.
     
    The event is organised within the context of a group of visiting music professionals, invited to Berlin by Initiative Musik. Artists and the general public alike are invited to join, meet the delegates, and enjoy the programme.

    Für die Party des Monats der zeitgenössischen Musik hat das ACUD ein spannendes Programm zusammengestellt, bei dem nicht nur gehört, sondern auch getanzt werden kann: Giovanni Civitenga ist der Kopf hinter dem Berliner Label S K Y A P N E A und der gleichnamigen Radiosendung auf NTS, in der er regelmäßig Gäste einlädt und mit ihnen Visionen eines eindringlichen Sounds verbreitet.
    Weiter geht es mit Hacklander Hatam, dem Drum- und Elektronik-Duo von Colin Hacklander und Farahnaz Hatam. Ihr Interesse gilt rhythmischer Stabilität und ihre Abwesenheit, der Tiefe radikaler Material-Heteronomie im zeitgenössischen Kapitalismus und der Natur unserer Konditionierung. Sie verstehen Ton als plastisches Material und Klang als Medium für Ideen: digitale Klangsynthese mit SuperCollider.
    Kouhei Matsunaga ist nicht nur Musiker, sondern auch Illustrator, der unter verschiedenen Künstlernamen (NHK, NHKyx, Internet Magic, Koyxen) Platten auf Labels wie Skam Records, Wordsound, Raster Noton, PAN, L.I.E.S. DFA und Mille Plateaux veröffentlichte.
    Abgelöst werden sie am späteren am Abend von Junis, der Teil des Berliner Kollektivs ∑(Summe) ist. Das lose Gemeinschaftsprojekt Berliner Produzenten strebt mit Künstlergesprächen, Ausstellungen und Platten seit 2013 im Berliner Untergrund nach einem neuen „wir“ und entwirft eine Antwort auf die ansteigende Individualisierung des Neoliberalismus.

    To mark the halfway point of the Month of Contemporary Music, ACUD has prepared an exciting evening where one can not only listen to music but also dance to it. Music for the mind and the body. Giovanni Civitenga is founder of the Berlin label S K Y A P N E A and has a radio program on NTS which goes by the same name, inviting guests and exploring their idea of immersive sound.
    Hacklander Hatam is the hard hitting drum and electronics duo from Colin Hacklander and Frahnaz Hatam. Interested in transparency, liberation, rhythmic stability & its absence, the depth of radical material heteronomy in contemporary capitalism & the nature of our mobilised conditioning; sound as sculptural material; sound as a medium in which ideas are communicated; digital sound synthesis with SuperCollider; drums, percussion & gongs.
    Born in Osaka, Kouhei Matsunaga is a musician and an illustrator. Under many different aliases (NHK, NHKyx, Internet Magic, Koyxen) he has released numerous albums on labels such as Skam Records, Wordsound, Raster Noton, PAN, L.I.E.S., an upcoming record on DFA and his first ever album “Upside Down” on Mille Plateaux in 1998.
    They will then make way for Junis, who will take control of the decks. He is a member of Berlin’s ∑(Summe) collective – an elusive collaborative project of Berlin-based producers. Conceptualised around the idea of a new “we” against the ongoing individualisation of neoliberalism, the group have been active giving talks, curating exhibitions and releasing records in the Berlin underground since 2013.
