Parallel to the opening of the CTM 2020 Exhibition, the festival kicks-off with a get together and performances. The evening opens with a DJ set from Mo Chan, followed by a performance by Hacklab facilitators Peter Kirn & Tad Ermitaño, and closes with a special performance of "The Ceremony" by Loïc Koutana, NSDOS & Zorka Wollny, which features Wollny's Psychedelic Choir.
NSDOS, aka Kirikoo Des, is a hybrid artist who works simultaneously across dance, music, and digital art.
Loïc Koutana is a performance artist, model, and producer, also known as part of Brazil's Teto Preto. He also produces solo music under the pseudonym L’Homme Statue.
Zorka Wollny is a composer and a theatre artist who creates site-specific works which respond to their architectural surroundings. She collaborates—in a director-like mode—with musicians, actors, and dancers and members of the local communities she works in.
Tad Ermitaño is a key figure in new media art in the Philippines and South East Asia, with a history reaching as far back as the late 80s when he co-founded the media collective Children of Cathode Ray.
Mo Chan / DJ Kohlrabi[JP/DE]
Mo Chan, sometimes DJ Kohlrabi, comes from visual art; she cruises between fun and depression, construction and ruination, following her instinct for trueness. As a member of female:pressure she has worked on Perspectives Festival and Berlin's monthly MEETUP, stepping over boundaries of the arts.
Peter Kirn is a composer/musician, audiovisual artist, and journalist. Classically trained in composition and piano, his music and visuals meld minimalist and experimental dance music influences with a focus on texture and abstraction. He is the editor of Create Digital Music and Create Digital Motion, working extensively with free and open source tools and shared content.
