On the occasion of Loop - A Summit for Music Makers, an Ableton-led conference which took place autumn 2015 and 2016 in Berlin, DISK Agency produced concurrently running CTM x Ableton events. The first CTM x Ableton edition in 2015 featured a concert series at Kino Babylon, Prince Charles and the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW). In 2016, CTM x Ableton visited the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg Platz. The events celebrate Ableton and CTM Festival’s long-standing partnership. In 2017, DISK will provide curatorial and production support for Loop's day and night-time programme.
Ableton's Loop summit is three days of performances, talks, and interactive workshops aimed at exchanging ideas at the cutting edge of music, creativity, and technology. The event brought together 400 diverse music makers to collaborate on new ideas, learn new techniques, and sharpen their creative tools. By day, participants attended talks, got involved in hands-on workshops with cutting-edge technology, drew inspiration from watching other artists work, and shared insights. By night, attendees were invited to attend inspiring concerts and club gigs.
DISK Agency curated the Ableton x CTM nighttime concerts and events, and provided guest management and ticketing support for the daytime conference for both successful Loop events.
