Participative Audio Lab

Collective Control 0

Part of “CTM 2023 – Portals”


The Participative Audio Lab (PAL) is a newly-formed initiative focused on collective creation and the development of open-source tools that allow artists to create and distribute their own participative musical experiences without the need of coding skills. The group was initiated this autumn thanks to support from the initiative »Prototyping Sonic Institutions« organised by Black Swan and CTM Festival 2022. 

At CTM 2023, PAL will present their first creation, a live participative music installation, at HAU2 and via a dedicated website Developed via an open-call hackathon, “Collective Control 0” – or “cc0” – allows users to create and register collective compositions remotely.
