Tim Tetzner’s Handclaps project is an ever-expanding data bank of film and video about musical phenomena. The associative, non-linear and modular format of Handclaps allows changing themes to be examined in their respective contexts: subject matter can be accessed in various constellations. The comprehensive programs comprise music documentation, clips and art videos that give descriptions of specific contexts, investigate the iconography of musical phenomena, cross-reference individual artists and analyze their strategies and social impact. For CTM.06 Tim Tetzner has compiled a Handclaps program that reflects this year’s theme, Being Bold!
Burn Station is a mobile copy station supporting the free distribution of music as it travels through urban spaces. Initiators Platoniq will set up their Burning Camp in MAO’s second room alongside a number of representatives and artists of European net labels.
