DEGEM CD 17: Transit
The pieces of the 2019 DEGEM CD deal in different ways with the subject of transition. This term works in many languages. It signifies passage, transformation, change, bridge passage, upheaval. The term can relate equally well to internal musical processes as to technological or social upheavals, even epochal transitions. Something changes and transforms into something completely different. Current developments in politics, the environment, technology and other areas underpin the assumption that we are (again) in a time of transition.
Michael Edwards und and Thomas Neuhaus
With contributions from Klarenz Barlow, Dirk Reith, Clemens von Reusner, Thomas Gerwin, Monika Golla & Nikolaus Heyduck, Jan Jacob Hofmann, Johannes S. Sistermanns und Hans Tutschku.
aufabwegen is proud to host EDITION DEGEM, the new label issuing the annual compilations of the German Association for Electrocaoustic Music / Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektroakustische Musik e.V. Each CD is curated by a sound artist and devoted to a specific theme/topic. The music covers a very wide range of electronic sounds, from sound art to post industrial cut ups, from field recordings and soundscapes to radiophonic composition.
