It's been 10 years since the last time artists from electronic labels Minus and Raster-Noton collaborated on the New Forms release and performance project in Leipzig, Germany. Now, the minimalist audio and visual masters are again combining their efforts for CONTAINER, a night of ideas and new takes on performance at WMF in Berlin. Contributing to the event are label heads Richie Hawtin, Olaf Bender, and Carsten Nicolai along with choice visual artists Matthew Hawtin and Ali Demirel and performers JPLS and nibo, who will be "introducing an experimental platform of performative interaction that promotes the labels' overlapping conceptual structures to form a unique laboratory of sound."
