Raster-Noton Announces European Showcases
The German label is taking to the road in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
Raster-Noton, the experimental label launched by Olaf Bender (a.k.a. Byetone), Carsten Nicolai (a.k.a. Alva Noto) and Frank Bretschneider back in 1996, has revealed details of its upcoming 20th anniversary showcases.
The series opens at Berghain on April 29, with live performances by the likes of Kangding Ray, Alva Noto, Atom™, Byetone, and Dasha Rush. The event runs in tandem with the White Circle audio-visual installation, which is set to precede the club night, in the Halle am Berghain (also being held as an individual exhibition on April 28 and 30).
From Berlin, the showcases travel to Tbilisi’s Sou Festival, Barcelona’s Sonar Festival, and Dekmantel Festival in Amsterdam, before moving on to Bochum and Rome. More locations will be added soon. The label is also marking the occasion with a special edition book.
