CenterDeep Space

Experimental musicians Karen Schlimp, Jaap Blonk and Klaus Hollinetz take us along on a sonorous journey through the human skin this Friday, December 1, 2017. In a concert entitled “UNDER YOUR SKIN/Bodyterms” in Deep Space 8K, they’ll play on medical terminology, through scores made of microscope images, and with the full range of their instruments’ possibilities.

Artificial IntelligenceFestival

Man meets artificial intelligence in a performance entitled “Corpus Nil.” Depending on the tension and posture of artist Marco Donnarumma’s body, an artificially intelligent algorithm modifies the light and sound on stage. Festivalgoers will be able to experience this spectacle live at the Big Concert Night on Sunday, September 10, 2017. In this interview, Marco Donnarumma goes into the background of his impressive performance.

Klangwolke 2016 Ars Electronica Festival

The Klangwolke [Cloud of Sound] is an autumn highlight of Linz’s annual calendar of events. Conceived as a blend of music, performance, art and spectacle with a different theme each year, it’s been a crowd-pleaser ever since its launch in 1979. The 2016 edition is entitled “River of Knowledge.” We recently had a chance to talk about the upcoming event with producer Uwe Buhrdorf and Rica Blunck and Tilo Nest of the cast and crew.


When you sit face-to-face with Tosca—that is, the duo of Rupert Huber and Richard Dorfmeister—you’re enveloped by a certain sense of composure. Both musicians have accomplishments to their credit; they’re consummate artists. But at the same time, there are these facial expressions—when they discuss their new album, upcoming concerts, expressive possibilities now available to them on stage. Suddenly, there’s a radiant glow, enthusiasm that can’t be simulated. It shows that Tosca isn’t anywhere even close to resting on their laurels and is still burning with artistic energy. Including the prospect of joint projects with the Ars Electronica Futurelab.
