On 20.11.2005, the Dis_Positionen festival will close at the Akademie
der Künste/Academy of Arts with a discussion 
panel on the relationship between radio,

both countries, again commissioned seven radio art productions,
which will be premiered on air during November. In Berlin, the premieres of
these commissioned works represent a programming highpoint. The

Zukunft at BPhil, Remix - Asyla (after Thomas Adès)
Hubert Machnik and Catherine Milliken
In his composition 'Asyla', the British composer Thomas Adès traces the
various meanings of the word 'asylum':. Students of Berlin's Hermann-Köhl
High School approached 'Asyla' by means of traditional instruments,
everyday noises and computer processes, and 
sought their own sound-language in the
creation of their remix version.
