r-n white circle

 

in celebration of its 20th anniversary in 2016, german record label raster-noton presents the »white circle«, an acoustic-architectural space designed as an audiovisual installation. four artists of the label were invited to develop and contribute an exclusive composition on this occasion: alva noto, byetone, frank bretschneider, and kangding ray.

each composition presents an independent, self-contained concept of the respective artist. all works are based on the idea of ambient music, a music that wants to make tangible the acoustic space as well as the visual stimulus.

the »white circle« was exclusively conceptualized for ZKM's »klangdom« (sound dome) which is made up of multiple speakers distributed throughout the room. by means of the control software »zirkonium«, these speakers can be played, turning sound itself into a sculptural spatial experience.

after its first presentation in march 2016, the installation is scheduled to be shown at various locations worldwide.
