CT::SWaM

CT::SWaM [Contemporary Temporary:: Sound Works And Music] is an artist-run series that has been presenting performances and workshops in spaces such as Eyebeam’s former Chelsea location, Fridman Gallery, MoMA PS1 Printshop, Spectrum and The Knockdown Center in NYC, as well as Neu West Berlin in Berlin. The series, initiated by Daniel Neumann in 2012, focuses on spatial sound works, where the distribution and localization of sounds is a primary compositional parameter and a central feature for the listener. These works consider architectural, acoustical and technological factors in exploring the complex and dynamic relationship between sound and space. The formats are open and include contemporary sound experiments, electro-acoustic multi-channel composition, improvisation, non-traditional performance configurations, lowercase artistic presence, and workshops – all of which diverge from a fixed perspective on audible space.
