r-n white circle

r-n white circle

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

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

»white circle« was exclusively conceptualized for ZKM's »klangdom« (sound dome) which is made up of 47 speakers distributed in the total of the room. by means of the control software »zirkonium«, these speakers can be played, turning sound itself into a sculptural spatial experience.

as part of ZKM's GLOBALE, raster-noton's »white circle« will be presented for the first time on march 11, 2016, before the installation will be shown in various locations worldwide.
