Alva Noto, Byetone, Frank Bretschneider and Kangding Ray will all create pieces for multi-channel audio.

German electronic label Raster-Noton celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2016, and part of the celebration will see four key artists come together for an audio-visual installation called White Circle.

Alva Noto, Byetone, Frank Bretschneider and Kangding Ray all contribute to the installation, which will be premiered at Germany’s ZKM museum on March 11 before touring to various locations around the world.

The multi-channel installation utilises 47 speakers, and sees each artist create a piece based around the idea of ambient music, with the aim of creating “a sculptural spatial experience.”

Frank Bretschneider, Kangding Ray and Kyoka will follow the opening with separate performances made specifically for the 4DSOUND system. Full details on the event can be found at Facebook.

White Circle isn’t the only event to mark Raster-Noton’s 20th anniversary – the label will also perform a showcase at this year’s Sonar Festival in Barcelona.
