DISK Welcomes Hitmakerchinx

As one of FDM's (Flex Dance Music) standout artists, Hitmakerchinx has been at the core of the scene for many years and helped to substantially form its dance and musical styles. He frequently performs with the likes of Rihanna, Asap Ferg, and Cardi B, and has been picked up by UK labels Fade To Mind and Night Slugs in 2017 for a 18-track retrospective of original work called Shades & Monsters: FDM Classics. The album was recognized as one of the Best Albums of 2017 by UK's Crack Magazine.

Now booking for 2018.

DISK Welcomes FAKA

Johannesburg performance art collective FAKA was established in 2015 by Fela Gucci and Desire Marea. The artists explore a combination of mediums ranging from sound, live performance, video and photography, to create an eclectic aesthetic with which they express their ideas about themes central to their experience as black queer bodies navigating the cis-hetero-topia of post-colonial Africa. In 2016 the duo’s debut EP Bottoms Revenge, a collection of Ancestral Gqom-Gospel sounds, was released by NON Worldwide. In October 2017, FAKA released their much anticipated sophomore EP titled Amaqhawe, a three track offering that “explores the intricacies of love and romance within the black queer experience, with songs touching on everything from self-love, unrequited love, childhood love and transactional love.”

DJ/rupture – Julius Eastman Memorial Dinner

The Julius Eastman Memorial Dinner is conceived for twin pianos, live electronics, and voice. This exhilarating sonic exploration led by Jace Clayton, a.k.a. DJ /rupture, brings fresh insight to the artistic legacy of Julius Eastman, the mercurial gay African American composer who mixed canny minimalist innovation with head-on political provocation. The project is available during its winter 2018 tour and beyond.

50 Years Silver Apples of the Moon

Morton Subotnick, Lillevan, and Alec Empire perform "From Silver Apples to a Sky of Cloudless Sulphur, Revisited". Subotnick revisits his seminal Silver Apples of the Moon album, followed by musical elements from Sidewinder, Until Spring, Cloudless Sulphur, and Crowds and Power. At times, Subotnick plays solo then turns it over to Alec Empire, who follows with his own revisitation; at other times the two musicians play together. Lillevan creates stunning visual imagery throughout. Now booking for 2018.

DISK has a proven track record in the organization of art, music, and media events, from concept design, planning, and finance, to operations, production, and communications and PR. We draw on extensive local and international networks as well as solid contacts in the cultural policy sector to promote groundbreaking art and music in combination with pioneering interdisciplinary discourse on their social and cultural impact. We would gladly deploy these diverse skills to realise projects on behalf of, or in close cooperation with likeminded partners.

From concerts and showcases, passing through conferences and publications, exhibitions and installations, site-specific art interventions, and multilateral co-operations, DISK holds over fifteen years of experience in developing projects that combine sound and a myriad of art forms and related fields. We actively seek to develop new projects and collaborations through commissioned work, unusual artistic pairings, new event formats, and any other artistic vision that relates to adventurous art.

Artist Booking

Representing individual artists as well as several of our own projects, we aim to promote adventurous music and multidisciplinary arts with forward-thinking institutions and partners around the world.

Promotion & PR

Communications and Public Relations for events and new releases, tailored to local national or international media representatives and audiences.

DISK Agency is active year-round in concert programming, producing the Polymorphism and Focus Mode series at Berghain, and curating concerts at various other local and international venues/partners.

Projects

Our current projects, and a selection of past projects, realized for clients or in collaboration with partners within the framework of the CTM Festival or DISK – Initiative Bild & Ton platforms.

Mission Statement

DISK Agency puts into service a range of skills developed from organizing Berlin’s annual CTM Festival for Adventurous Music & Art as well as through the projects and operations of the festival’s host organisation DISK Berlin. Since its inception in 1999, CTM Festival has become one of the world’s most prominent platforms for contemporary electronic and experimental music and digital culture.

With over 18 years of experience and an extensive network of partners, DISK Agency aims to further encourage the production and diffusion of experimental sound art, innovative music, and visual arts. A central axis in the independent arts scene in Berlin and internationally, DISK is also committed to sustaining its longstanding relationship with likeminded festivals, venues, concert agencies, and cultural bodies, and to nurturing likeminded local and international non-profit initiatives.
