blaues rauschen 2021

This festival for electronic music and digital experiments explores possibilities that current technical developments offer artists and their audiences. After several postponements, we are now starting the festival on 6 days and at different venues in the Ruhr area.

24 artists and projects are presented who use the possibilities of analog / digital or purely digital technology to take artistic and political positions on questions of current social developments.

From 25.09. – 03.10.2021 concerts, performances, installations and lectures will take place in Dortmund, Bochum and Essen. The artists perform – based on the Pecha Kucha lecture technique – in 20-minute slots and almost without a break one after the other.

We look forward to a joint festival.
