Saturday16:00 Talk w/ Byetone
A talk with Byetone hosted by the Berlin publicist Max Dax in collaboration with Red Bull Music Academy. The conversation will provide an insight into the identity and philosophy of Raster’s founder. The historical label, formerly part of raster-noton - which he founded with Carsten Nicolai and Frank Bretschneider in 1996 - is known for being one of the benchmarks for edge cutting electronic music and visuals. Since the label's founding, Olf Bender has also produced music solo under the pseudonym Byetone, but it was not until 2008 that he released his first record on raster-noton, defining his signature sound: a minimalist, archaic and rebellious music full of energy.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday20:00 — END Planetarium w/ Caterina Barbieri
Ecstaticstatic is a sound installation by Caterina Barbieri for the temporary planetarium installed at this year’s edition of Terraforma - in collaboration with the itinerant club BUKA.
Like planets invisibly yet constantly in motion, Caterina Barbieri’s compositions slowly evolve around infinite repetition and permutation of patterns to explore the generative, cosmogonic power of sound.
Based on the exclusive and disciplined use of hardware machinery, Ecstaticstatic’s music explores the creative use of computation and complex sequencing techniques to explore the artefacts of human perception and ultimately induce a sense of ecstasy, trance and contemplation.The planetarium will also feature Paradoxes, a visual project by Orthographe, Presto!? Records and Marco Garoni, featuring a laser show and stars projections.
Saturday14:00 Workshop w/ Mohammad Reza Mortazavi
A workshop with the tombak and daf master Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, illustrating the unique techniques for Persian hand drums, aiming to develop the feeling of rhythm . Considered one of the leading tombak players in the world, Mohammad started playing the traditional instrument at the age of six. During his career he developed over thirty striking new finger techniques, revolutionizing the traditional way of playing tombak.
Saturday & Sunday12:30 Yoga w/ Lavinia
NadYoga Practice is a form of dynamic yoga, whose core is the breath that connects the postures in a creative sequence.It creates a unique flow in which the body takes different forms with rhythmicity as in a dance. After each lesson you feel pacified, refreshed and centered. The emotional and physical blocks are melted and a deep sense of peace grows.
Sound Bath Meditation is a concert where the body is immersed in cascades of vibrating sounds emanating from ancestral and sacred instruments, such as Gong, Tibetan bells, cymbals, and drums. The body is a resonance field, subject to the encounter between sound and vibration, which involves breathing, hearing, skin, blood circulation, heartbeat, musculature, as well as the nervous system. These frequencies bring our body to a re-harmonization and our mind is carried on an exploratory journey into the inner world.
Sunday10:00 — 12:00 Kids w/ Afterschool
“The millennium hunters”: the project aims to emphasise the experience of Terraforma within the ‘Area Kids’. Focusing on the relationship and contact with nature and the sustainable impact, having as a center the event’s protagonist: music. Kids will have the chance to explore the green surroundings with a particular focus: hunting all those materials (sounds, animals’ noises, howling) that will then give birth to a musical production. Furthermore kids will also hunt recyclable material in order to give shape to their very own idea of sustainability.
