Berlin’s CTM.13 has a fine heritage of uniting the electronic avant-garde with emissaries from contemporary dance culture.

A rash of new additions have been announced, and it’s a strong and varied collection of artists. Pantha du Prince will be appearing with classically trained percussionists The Bell Laboratory to perform a special symphony for percussion and electronics – expect 64 bronze bells and lush programming from the German dreamweaver. Highly exciting computer artist Holly Herndon will be airing her excellent live show, presenting a selection of work from her great Movement LP. Skream will be stopping by with Sgt. Pokes in tow to perform a special DJ set exploring his “musical influences”, and Simian Mobile Disco will be doing their dancefloor-friendly thing.

AtomTM will premiere Bauteile, a collaborative work with Marc Behrens, and will also give a free performance of an assortment of classic material. Pete Swanson will air his noise/techno fusion, Dean Blunt will show off his The Narcissist project, and A Guy Called Gerald will team up with Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez. Terre Thaemlitz, Demdike Stare, d’Eon and People Like Us are among the other acts on the bill.

The new acts join the likes of Matmos, Mark Fell, Emptyset, Lee Gamble, Heatsick, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Diamond Version and more. The festival runs from January 28 to February 3 in Berlin, with venues including Berghain, HAU and Stattbad. Tickets and further information are available from the CTM.13 website.
