The Institute for Sound and Music has been born in Berlin with the mission of giving it this overdue acknowledgement. Composed by an initial team of seven professionals (and friends) of different industries, brought together to change –and shake – the artistic landscape, their venture is about to show its first fruits in the most formidable way. Premiering on the 29th of March, the ISM Hexadome is their first project, an immersive audiovisual installation that will combine art and technology.
Taking place in Berlin’s art heavyweight institution Martin-Gropius-Bau, nine installations and performances will take place, and here is where the big oomph comes: some of the names behind them are Brian Eno, Tarik Barri and Thom Yorke, Holly Herndon and Mathew Dryhurst or Ben Frost and MFO, among others. We talk to the team behind this ambitious project that gives us faith in the future of music – and museums.
