1 Eliane Radigue, Naldjorlank The first entirely acoustic composition by the pioneer of electroacoustic music, whose work explores the sonorities of the cello in complex and surprising ways. This piece was created in collaboration with Charles Curtis, who also performed it at Berlin’s Interface festival.

2 Maryanne Amacher, Gravity—Music for Sound Joined Rooms Series A ninety-minute installation in the form of a “sound screening” made for the tower of a former baroque church in the center of Berlin (now Singuhr-Hörgalerie in Parochial, a gallery for sound art), whose architecture allows for fascinating acoustic choreography.
