This year’s CTM Festival centres on “Dis Continuity”, a loose enough theme to encompass the entirety of the electronic/experimental divide, which would include teddy bear-besotted minimalist pioneer Charlemagne Palestine with Pansonic’s Mika Vaino; producer James Holden, whose latest Krauty/cold wave album topped a lot of year-end lists; industrial techno godfathers Porter Ricks; rediscovered kosmische Romanians Rodion G.A. and all sorts of side projects that give the fest the character of a blind-men-feeling-up-an-elephant. Various venues. See website for more details.
