The Platform for Extratonality focuses on sonic (and neighboring) activities that reject distinctions between high and low, exceptional and boring, serious and pop. It streches the classical paradigms of music (balance, contrast, focus, movement, pattern, proportion, rhythm and unity) and expand them with conceptual, technical and performative principles from other disciplines. Our program manifests itself in the form of conferences, performance evenings, radio shows and workshops. For each, we invite artists, musicians, poets and technicians from in and outside of Rotterdam to demonstrate various phenomenons and engage with our space and facilities.
This event is made possible with the kind support of Popunie Rotterdam, Stichting Volkskracht, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Rotterdam and Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
