Art and Media Day
Mon, April 10, 2006 2 pm CEST, Festival
In November 2005, ZKM was chosen from among approximately 200 participants as one of the nation’s most outstanding institutions by the jury for the federal initiative »Germany—Land of Ideas.« It is therefore part of Germany’s hitherto largest event series, »365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas.« As a »Landmark in the Land of Ideas,« ZKM will present itself with an »Art and Media Day,« highlighting the work of the research institutes.

2–6 p.m.
Music Pipeline (ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics)
Your favourite CD listened to a bit differently! Feed the music pipeline with the music that you’ve brought and hear how sounds can be transformed. Your music will flow through the pipeline and sound again from stations with loud speakers. At every station it sounds different: with echo, filtered, or completely transformed.

2–6 p.m.
In the ZKM Foyer the artist group »robotlab« will present the robot-sound installation »instrument« (karaoke version). At the center is a »wohltemperierter« industrial robot who plays music with its motors and gear sounds as though a sound instrument. With the appropriate accompaniment, it sings of the past, the production industry in which it was raised and its utopian future.

Klangdom demonstration and concert
Works by Ludger Brümmer, Robert Normandeau and Robin Minard.
The newly built Klangdom at the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics is an instrument unique throughout the world, for spatializing music and sound. More than thirty loudspeakers hang three-dimensionally in the space on an elliptical rig system, with additional ones set up on the floor. This enables surround-sound listening that far outshines Dolby-Surround.
