Sound Exchange: Experimental Music Cultures in Central and Eastern Europe
Sound Exchange was a project by DOCK e.V. and the Goethe-Institut which sought to shed light on experimental music making in Central and Eastern Europe from 1950 to 2010. Alongside the organization of events connected to music festivals in seven different countries, between 2011 and 2012, the project produced a rich anthology of texts and documents on a wide stylistic and aesthetic spectrum of electro-acoustic music, composed and improvised music, musical media art and audio art ranging a 60-year span.
Sound Exchange has kindly authorised us to mirror the contents of this anthology – co-edited by Golo Föllmer, Markus Steffens and Melanie Uerlings, with the participation of investigators from eight different countries – on Unearthing The Music’s online database. Some selections will be posted on the blog throughout the year, and you can learn more about the project here.
