CTM 2024: Osmium

The concert takes place within CTM Festival´s 25th anniversary edition, which runs from January 26 to February 4, 2024. Under the theme Sustain, CTM 2024 presents the current state of adventurous music, from pulsating dance floor to shared moments of artistic intimacy.

Osmium is a new project from the minds of Oscar-winning composer Hildur Guðnadóttir, Grammy-winning producer Sam Slater, Subtext boss James Ginzburg,  and pioneering Indonesian vocalist Rully Shabara, of Senyawa. The four musicians assemble here to create surprising and hypnotic music using specially built instruments, finding a balance between the mechanical and the organic. As Shabara picks up on feedback sounds from the mechanised elements of the instruments to create new rhythms with his extended vocals, the »robots« themselves continue playing whether or not the instrumentalists add their own personal chaos. Heavy on percussion, and spectral timbres, the project explores how organic sounds blend into the sound of machines, and vice versa.

Sunday,  January 28
Doors: 5 pm / Start: 6 pm

CTM Festival is supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Social Cohesion, the  Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, and many more.
