In December 2018, the third edition of the festival »inSonic« will take place at the ZKM. »inSonic« is a showcase for genre-spanning artistic confrontations with new media technologies and innovative concepts, which will be explored in lectures, hands-on demonstrations, concerts and live coding performances.

Machine-learning algorithms in space- and time-based media, data sonification and visualization, algorithmic processes for spatial sound generation – in 2018, the topic of algorithms and big data will be negotiated within the framework of the festival, discussing to what extent algorithms have long since penetrated both above and below the public radar into socially relevant everyday processes as well as into the media arts.

In the run-up to »inSonic 2018: Algorithmic Spaces«, the ZKM in cooperation with the research project »Algorithms that Matter« (ALMAT) at the IEM Graz have called for the submission of works dealing with the spatiality of calculation processes. As a result of the Open Call, fixed-media compositions and live performances will be performed that use generative processes to create space.»inSonic 2018: Algorithmic Spaces« is organized in cooperation with »Algorithms that Matter« within the framework of the »Interfaces« project with the support of the Creative Europe program of the European Union.
