    Find the File: Haus der Kulturen der Welt’s new festival turns archives into art Pirco Pirco

 

By Charlotte Billing

How should we care for sound archives in the digital age? It’s a question that Detlef Diederichsen, head of music and performing arts at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, has considered for more than 10 years — so much so that he created Find the File, a festival that begins on March 21 at the HKW, to explore big-picture questions about music digitalization.

We caught up with Diederichsen to discuss how the idea came to life, plus we hear from Berlin-based musicians Tellavision and Derya Yıldırım, who were commissioned to produce a work for the festival’s opening night.
