Emerging Artist Platform
The new sound of the city – Berlin Current presents young, unconventional, and experimental pop music from Berlin. Since 2013, a series of Berlin Current showcases in Berlin and at festivals such as Unsound Krakow, MUTEK Montreal and Intonal Festival in Malmø, Sweden have propelled emerging artists onto the international stage. A partnership established with Ableton in 2015 aims to support artists in their technical development. Sponsored by the Musicboard Berlin.
Initiative Music Showcases
Since 2016, DISK Agency has curated and produced two events for Initiative Musik, to provide a networking space for invited visiting music professionals. Artists and the general public alike were invited to join, meet the delegates, and enjoy these programmes, which in 2017 features artists from DISK's Berlin Current initiative that supports emerging Berlin-based artist, and in 2016 focused on the music genre, metal, by inviting local bands.
Initiated in 2012, the Polymorphism concert series at Berghain takes shape as a crossbreed of club night, concert, and experimental laboratory, and explores the artistic possibilities of a present moment in which everything counts as a viable source and no rules apply.
