Raster Noton’s Workshop

Raster-Noton. Archiv für ton und nichtton is a leading digital creation platform worldwide. A vast network that covers the border areas of pop, art and science and tries to overlap them. Established in 1999 from the merger of the two labels: Rastermusic and Noton.archiv für ton und nichtton, Raster Noton is now a creative, fundamental hub where music projects, theoretical publications and installations have a place. The common idea behind all releases is the experimental approach: the amalgam of art, sound and design.

Nowadays, Raster Noton´s work includes more than 100 publications, signed by artists with different routes and including names like Alva Noto, William Basinski, Byetone, Ivan Pavlov aka COH, Ryoji Ikeda, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Frank Bretschneider, Mika Vainio

The founders of Raster Noton: Carsten Nicolai, Olaf Bender y Frank Bretschneider will offer in L.E.V 2010 an interesting workshop about the past, present and future of their platform, about their personal approach to sound and image and also their main tools and work methods in approaching each project.
