“Hybrid project” 3hd Festival has announced its first batch of participants in its “label – magazine – festival” programme, to run online over the coming months and culminating in an IRL lineup of presentations and performance across venues in Berlin, running December 2 to 5.
The event series is a first for party organisers Creamcake, running since 2011, who have invited a number of artists, academics, designers, journalists, and curators from around the world to examine “what the labor of sound is today, what it’s cultural causes and consequences are, and how it might make it’s way forward in a world where individuals and cultures live within systems upon systems of debt.”
The event will open with an exhibition under the festival theme, The Labor of Sound in a World of Debt, followed by presentations by the likes of journalist and academic Adam Harper, and graphic designer and JACK댄스 organiser Simon Whybray, as well as a music video premiere and live performances from Easter and Lonely Boys. There’ll be performances by LXV and Soda Plains, stage design by art collective Aurora Sander, and appearances by Colin Self, Danny L Harle, and Nkisi.
There are more to be announced, as well as essays, interviews, mixtapes, and exclusive tracks to become available online, so stay tuned.
