TodaysArt is part of SHAPE, a new three-year Creative Europe platform project for innovative music and audiovisual art. Fifteen festivals joined forces to collectively choose 48 artists each year and present their work subsequently at our events.

TodaysArt is proud to announce its participation in SHAPE, a new 3-year initiative supported by the Creative Europe programme which gathers 16 European non-profit organisations active within the International Cities of Advanced Sound (ICAS) network, to create a platform that aims to support, promote and exchange innovative and aspiring musicians and interdisciplinary artists with an interest in sound. SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe) attempts to present a variety of idiosyncratic sounds from all over Europe, and to provide audiences and professionals with insightful lectures, talks and workshops by experts in various fields related to sound and performance.

Every year all platform’s members will collectively choose 48 musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops and talks across festivals and special events. For 2015 TodaysArt has selected Julien Mier, Torus and Matthijs Munnik + Joris Strijbos.

The SHAPE website is coming soon, and so is the full list of the 48 SHAPE artists for 2015! The website will serve to highlight the individual artists chosen for SHAPE, as well as the participating festivals.

SHAPE x CTM Festival

The SHAPE project will launch officially this week at Berlin’s CTM Festival with a Meet and Greet event on Thursday January 29th at the Projektraum of the Kunstquartier Bethanien. Presentations by several SHAPE members and selection of participating artists will give an insight into the upcoming year of activities, musical projects, and beyond. All interested artists, professionals and the general public are welcome to come and meet SHAPE coordinators and artists!

Eight different artists will be brought to CTM 2015 – Un Tune as a result of the SHAPE initiative: Marco Donnarumma, Matthijs Munnik, Zamilska, Extreme Precautions, Gábor Lázár, Lorenzo Senni, RSS B0YS and KETEV.
