End of 2020 / Beginning of 2021
The four-day music festival Visual Groove is being organized in collaboration with MEKA Medienregion Karlsruhe e.V. It will take place at the Jazz Club, which will open in the venue of the former Kurbel and will feature five concerts and various events. Within the audiovisual format, music and video merge: the performances of the Visual Jockeys are coordinated with the musical performance of the jazz artists in such a way that both artistic disciplines will complement each other. The musicians from the fields of jazz, electro, and experimental music are selected with regard to a balanced gender ratio. Via an open call, Visual Jockeys — artists from all over the world are welcome — can apply for a music act starting in October 2020. After selection, the teams will compile their musical compositions and audiovisual performances at workshops.
The Visual Groove Festival is supported by the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe 2020 project funding program for media art.
