Generation Z : ReNoise
Russian Pioneers of Sound Art and Musical Technology in the Early 20th Century
I recently visited Generation Z : ReNoise – Russian Pioneers of Sound Art and Musical Technology in the Early 20th Century. It’s an exhibition part of the CTM festival, Berlin and indeed a very important and interesting historical exhibition about sound pioneers.
The exhibition presents many remarkable inventions made in Russia in the early 20th century: The Variophon, Theremin, Terpistone, Rhythmicon, Emiriton and Ekvodin. I think it’s important to highlight these inventions as many of them are still used today without any knowledge of their true origin.
As a visitor, not only do you get the opportunity to experience some of these early historical noise instruments up close, but you can also try some of them out.
The exhibition is curated by Andrey Smirno and runs until the 23rd of February.
All other days: 12–19:00
