As well as Antenes, Sylvia Massy and Ex-Easter Island Head.

Colin Self and Deena Abdelwahed are among first artists confirmed for the 2020 edition of Ableton’s Loop summit, taking place in Berlin from April 24-26.

Other names announced for next year’s event include Sylvia Massy, an engineer and producer known for her work with Johnny Cash, REM and Tool, who talks about using experimental methods and equipment. Mexican duo Sotomayor will perform and talk about their sampling methods, while Ex-Easter Island Head host both improv and studio sessions.

New York-based artists Antenes and Eric Pitra will also appear to talk about building their own instruments, while percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, Joel Holmes and Cody Currie round out the first batch of names announced for the three-day event.

Next year’s Loop takes place at Berlin’s Silent Green venue as well as Savvy, Ebensperger Rhomberg, Luxoom Lab and Bonello Studios, following editions at Radialsystem V and Funkhaus. Last year’s edition took place in Los Angeles, where artists including Equiknoxx and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith participated in talks and performances.
