cresc... Biennial for Current Music

Technology won’t save us

Under the title HUMAN_MACHINE, the 2020 ›cresc... Biennial for Current Music Frankfurt Rhine Main‹ spends two weekends from February 28 to March 7, 2020 exploring the fascination exerted by the relationship between humans and technology upon a great variety of current music. »Technology won’t save us«, the British band Sophia sang as early as 2006. Ten years later, however, digital technology is increasingly permeating our daily lives. The fact that the discourse on the positive and negative potentials of the coexistence of humanity and technology has also led to a lively artistic output can be experienced impressively at ›cresc... 2020‹. Here, contemporary music meets heavy metal, noise, turntablism and live electronics.
