Dis Continuity – CTM Magazine 2014
104 pages, paperback
The very first CTM magazine edition commemorates the festival’s 15th anniversary edition, which was constructed around the theme Dis Continuity. The most common and accepted narratives of music’s radical evolution over the past century favour a few exceptional individuals whose stories exemplify major, bold-stroked revolutions and transitions. But this history is underwritten by the innovation of countless others. Adopting a less hierarchical perspective, the works included in this compendium illuminate select trajectories in experimental and electronic music that until now have remained under the radar but continue to inform and influence music today.

Rietveld, Ion Dumitrescu, Jennifer Lucy Allan, Johan Palme, Katerina Leinhart, Kristoffer Gansing, Konstantin Dudakov-Kashuro, Marcus Boon, Michael van Hoogenhuyze, Mat Dryhurst, Paul Purgas, Peter Kirn, Robert Mießner, Thibaut de Ruyter in conversation with Eliane Radigue, Wolfgang Ernst.
