The festival melds music and media arts at one unique location in the middle of the Black Forest, Germany. The Linach dam (German: Linachtalsperre) is an architectural masterpiece spanning the valley of the Linach creek at 143 meters. Over 100 years after the electric revolution, the dam, that elec- trified the region back in the days, now takes on the role as the setting and resource of a festival for electric, electronic and digital arts. Dedicated to experimenting with new art forms, Reservoir’s focus on electric’ arts is not limited to digital technologies. We seek to provide a stage for a spectrum of audio and video performances, installations directly next to or surrounding the dam, filled with interdisciplinary workshops, all of which encapsulate in some way a reference to the Linach dam and/or its history – past, present or future.
Festival date: july 20, 2019
Selected artists will find at their disposal the following working materials:
