EU Booking Support: Tara Transitory
Booking support for EU dates in Sept / Oct 2017. Please contact email@example.com.
Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation embraces performance as an explicit expression against the prefabrication of culture. Live, she creates a simultaneously body-oriented and, by virtue of an obliteration of gender boundaries, body-transcending aural experience. Her music employs field recordings and sounds from a midi controller and 64-button monomer. She often places self-built piezo contact microphones on the furniture in the performance space as well as on the instruments themselves, so that the system picks up sounds including fader and knob movements, button-pressing, and physical motion from both Tara and the audience.
DISK Welcomes LSDXOXO
New York based DJ and producer LSDXOXO has been described as "deliciously confrontational". With projects like Whorecore, voted one of FACT Mag's 50 Best Albums of the Year, or Fuck Marry Kill (released via GHE20G0TH1K) one could understand why. With his debut LP on the way, the rising producer is eager to push his narrative even further. Now booking for 2017/2018.
EU Booking Support: Violence
VIOLENCE is an LA-based multi-instrumentalist producing angry, restless sounds combining the polarised realms of pop and noise. Back in 2012 the Californian appeared on Blasting Voice, a compilation executive-produced by TOTAL FREEDOM. Last year VIOLENCE released his debut album, Ruse of Power, on pan-African label NON Worldwide and toured Europe with like-minded souls Mykki Blanco and Yves Tumor. In the beginning of June, VIOLENCE will embark on a solo European tour to promote his forthcoming LP set for release on New York’s PTP in autumn 2017. The artists’ live show is a thunderous spectacle with live guitar, vocals and CDJs.
DISK is providing booking support for Violence EU dates in June/July 2017. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chris Salter "Haptic Field" at Wiener Festwoche and Martin Gropius Bau
Following the premiere at Chronus Art Center (Shanghai) Chris Salter's newest multisensory installation, "Haptic Field", travels to Wiener Festwoche (June) and Martin Gropius Bau Berlin (July). "Haptic Field" merges contemporary fashion, cutting edge wearables and an exploration of one of our most under-explored senses – touch.
DISK Welcomes Infinite Machine
Founded in 2011 by former hardcore purveyor Charlie Juárez (aka Wolf), Mexico/Montreal collective Infinite Machine has steadily established itself as a force in the industry. It made both Mixmag’s and XLR8R’s top labels of 2016, and was profiled by Resident Advisor as February 2017’s Label of the Month. Now booking showcases upon request.

Consulting & Opperative Support
DISK has a proven track record in the organization of art, music, and media events, from concept design, planning, and finance, to operations, production, and communications and PR. We draw on extensive local and international networks as well as solid contacts in the cultural policy sector to promote groundbreaking art and music in combination with pioneering interdisciplinary discourse on their social and cultural impact. We would gladly deploy these diverse skills to realise projects on behalf of, or in close cooperation with likeminded partners.
From concerts and showcases, passing through conferences and publications, exhibitions and installations, site-specific art interventions, and multilateral co-operations, DISK holds over fifteen years of experience in developing projects that combine sound and a myriad of art forms and related fields. We actively seek to develop new projects and collaborations through commissioned work, unusual artistic pairings, new event formats, and any other artistic vision that relates to adventurous art.
Representing individual artists as well as several of our own projects, we aim to promote adventurous music and multidisciplinary arts with forward-thinking institutions and partners around the world.
Promotion & PR
Communications and Public Relations for events and new releases, tailored to local national or international media representatives and audiences.
DISK Agency is active year-round in concert programming, producing the Polymorphism and Focus Mode series at Berghain, and curating concerts at various other local and international venues/partners.
Our current projects, and a selection of past projects, realized for clients or in collaboration with partners within the framework of the CTM Festival or DISK – Initiative Bild & Ton platforms.
DISK Agency puts into service a range of skills developed from organizing Berlin’s annual CTM Festival for Adventurous Music & Art as well as through the projects and operations of the festival’s host organisation DISK Berlin. Since its inception in 1999, CTM Festival has become one of the world’s most prominent platforms for contemporary electronic and experimental music and digital culture.
With over 18 years of experience and an extensive network of partners, DISK Agency aims to further encourage the production and diffusion of experimental sound art, innovative music, and visual arts. A central axis in the independent arts scene in Berlin and internationally, DISK is also committed to sustaining its longstanding relationship with likeminded festivals, venues, concert agencies, and cultural bodies, and to nurturing likeminded local and international non-profit initiatives.
We are interested in collaborating with forward-thinking artists, thinkers, festivals, venues, and cultural organisations from diverse sound-related fields, as well as likeminded private ventures. Contact us for more information.
