CTM Festival enters the Betonhalle, a massive concrete space located underneath Silent Green, for the first time. The multi-day Betonhalle programme will feature several concerts focused on music’s power to evoke stories, landscapes, situations, and imaginaries. As part of this series, dark ambient deity Deathprod, aka sound engineer and producer Helge Sten, will appear in support of Occulting Disk, his first release in 15 years. Described as “an anti-fascist ritual,” Occulting Disk was recorded over five years in Oslo, Reykjavik, Berlin, Cologne, and Los Angeles and is released on Smalltown Supersound. Deathprod’s formidable place in the dark ambient canon was cemented with 2004’s Morals and Dogma.
The concert is part of CTM 2020 Festival, which will again play out across some of Berlin’s most standout cultural and nightlife venues. CTM pairs daring artistic content with an in-depth discourse programme, framing today’s sounds and music cultures within a shifting, hybrid global society. With the theme, “Liminal,” CTM 2020 examines transitional phases where familiar orders are destabilised.
