Worldtronics 2007

Festival of Electronic Music

27 November 07 - 01 December 07

Every year, WORLDTRONICS at the House of World Cultures tries to find the most innovative hotspots for electronic music as well as the most exciting musical developments in the wide world outside Europe and the United States. After all, digital cultural techniques have long since become a global phenomenon – producing new, unheard-of worlds of sound. The first edition 2007 explores the electronic music scenes in Japan, Congo, Chile and Israel. For five days, the 1950’s architecture of the former Congress Hall on the River Spree will be welcoming musicians and DJs who play music ranging from minimal, abstract, techno and deep house to experimental pop, congotronics and acitón. The House is indebted to experts and scouts in the various countries for this exquisite selection. Worldtronics is also a reminder that electronic music arises through sheer joy in experimentation. And that dancing is the most wonderful way of appropriating public space.
