As part of ZKM Karlsruhe’s expansive GLOBALE programme an ambitious 300-day festival exploring art in the globalised and digital age, 4DSOUND will present a new series of Artist Residencies and creative exchanges.

Drawn from the title of Luciano Berio’s composition ‘Points on the curve to find…’ (1974), 4DSOUND: Points On The Curve investigates landmark historical spatial compositions, whilst exploring new possibilities for musical forms and sound exploration using emerging spatial sound tools and technologies.

With 4DSOUND as the instrument, we explore a range of ideas and expressions that concern with the past, present and future of music. The programme includes a multi-disciplinary Spatial Sound Hacklab, four new Artist Residencies, an artist presentation and discussion session, presentation and interpretation of spatial compositions by pioneeering modern composers Edgar Varese and Iannis Xenakis, and a showcase with experimental Berlin imprint raster-noton in celebration of their 20th anniversary.
