8 Sept. Rome’s German Academy at Villa Massimo celebrates the tenth and last edition of raster-noton’s electronic music festival Electric Campfire, at 20.00 on Friday 8 September. The event at Villa Massimo is organised in collaboration with the raster-noton record label, founded in 1999 after a merger between Rastermusic and Noton. The packed line-up this year includes Alva Noto, Byetone, Frank Bretschneider, Dasha Rush, Robert Lippok, Atom™, Kangding Ray, Senking, Annes-James Chaton, Kyoka, Pomassl, emptyset, and Grischa Lichtenberger.
One of the co-founders of the event is Carsten Nicolai who was a fellow of Villa Massimo in 2007, and is better known under his musician pseudonym Alva Noto. Now one of the world’s leading labels in the field of experimental electronic music, raster-noton undertakes projects based on the idea of merging sound, art, design and science.
The event is free but those wishing to attend must register via the academy’s website from midday on Wednesday 6 September, while tickets last.
