Within the international workshop »digital composition« but also during concerts, lectures and discussions on the topic of »digital creativity and contemporary music« young artists will enter the dialogue with experienced artists at the ZKM | Karlsruhe (Germany).

Invited artists such as Sebastian Berweck (pianist) and Robert Henke (composer, software engineer), who work with different experimental expression forms, will design concerts and will actively engage in the discussions. The focus of all these activities lies in digital compositional techniques as well as in the question of the digital avant-garde: if they exist, where are they now?
