N.K. curates an exceptional evening with musicians and artists responding to data politics, surveillance & privacy issues, cultures of fear and Snowden’s actions. Come hear sonified metadata; experiments in both computer-controlled instruments and stroboscopes; algorithmic composition using various programming environments; and see familiar NSA slides in a new light.

The Magical Secrecy Tour is co-produced by transmediale/resource, N.K. Projekt, and Leslie Dunton-Downer.

Happening highlight: A three-day-long sound piece will reach its dramatic conclusion. This work, a collaboration by Farah Hatam, Colin Hacklander, Leslie Dunton-Downer, and selected students from the Ernst Busch Hochschule für Schauspielkunst in Berlin, presents the US Constitution, the German Constitution, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace in states of change and contradiction, embodying the residual & renewable allure of authority and its opposites.
