KNM Berlin, acclaimed for its HouseMusik concerts in Berlin—in which private apartments, offices, shops, and cafés are used for a concert on the move—brings its innovative approach to Zankel Hall. In a mini-marathon, KNM presents a survey of today’s avant-garde music scene in Berlin with video, sound installations, and sampling as well as virtuosic music making.
