This festival for electronic music and digital experiments explores possibilities that current technical developments offer artists and their audiences.

Artists are presented who use the possibilities of analog / digital or purely digital technology to take artistic and political positions on questions of current social developments.

Concerts, performances, installations and lectures will take place in Dortmund, Bochum and Essen in April 2021. The artists performing 20-minute slots and almost without a break - based on the Pecha Kucha lecture technique.

We will publish the full program as soon as it is foreseeable which artists will actually be able to travel to which events and which formats the performances at the various locations will have.


Until then, all the best.
