IMA.15 Der Ball


A revue on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the IMA Institute for Media Archeology
27 11 2020
Stadtsaal St. Pölten

IMA was founded in February 2005 and looks back on 15 years of artistic creation on the occasion of this anniversary. 15 live acts, one for each year, a midnight insert and an after midnight program accompany our guests through the night.

We have commissioned the following artists to compose and perform ten-minute dance music pieces. A challenge because it is not our community’s main sphere of activity! We have also made sure that our sound machines will be represented and look forward to seeing and hearing the Max Brand Synthesizer, the rhythmicon, or the theremin on stage. In addition, we have asked theorists to prepare five-minute talks. We are especially pleased that Siegfried Zielinski has agreed to participate. Not only is he responsible for coining our institute’s name, but his book Deep Time of the Media: Toward an Archaeology of Hearing and Seeing by Technical Means has had a lasting influence on us.
