About Nusasonic at CTM Festival 2020

CTM Festival’s 2020 edition took place 24 January – 2 February 2020 in Berlin. With the theme, Liminal, CTM attempted to reflect on music as a space and catalyst for transformation. The festival proposed multiple entry points into its theme by bringing together challenging, hybrid performances and transformative musical experiences. Nusasonic presented a number of special projects within CTM 2020. A premiere collaboration between Gabber Modus Operandi, Wahono, and the Nakibembe Xylophone Troupe was co-commissioned by CTM and Nyege Nyege Festival. Duo Raja Kirik built on the folk art of jaranan buto to consider the war of narratives that shape histories, while Y-DRA fused koplo, IDM, and techno to create a "No-Brain Dance." Tad Ermitaño joined Peter Kirn in hosting the 2020 edition of the MusicMakers Hacklab.
