Up Node X CTM Festival presents
| 25 January – 03 February 2019 | Berlin, various venues |
Together with CTM Festival, Up Node will present a selection of experimental artists from the Nordic countries throughout the festival. The six diverse performances span the mysterious, dark, selection of electro new wave from the finish DJ Kristiina Männikkö, to Maria W Horn’s haunted modulars and skillfully engineered intensity. The Danish composer Sofie Birch will be performing at MONOM in 4DSOUND, while Sami indigenous vocal traditions will be presented in a collaboration between Maja S.K. Ratkje and Katarina Barruk with visuals made by Matti Aiko. Both dj. flugvel og geimskip and Vanligt Folk are sure to deliver an eccentric performance on stage. With this selection CTM and Up Node present the Northern hemisphere’s great variety in music and sound.
