A MAZE. Interact
// Celebrating the Convergence of Games, Art, and Music
with special guests: Keiichi Yano, Julian Oliver, Paulina Bozek and many others.


A MAZE. Interact is a festival about the convergence of computer games, art and music, organized by a group of Berlin game experts. It takes place within CTM.10 in cooperation with CTM and other international cooperation partners. With its main focus on the increasing convergence of computer games and music, A MAZE. Interact will be an essential contribution to CTM.10's theme OVERLAP – Sound & Other Media.
A MAZE. Interact – Celebrating the Convergence of Games, Art, and Music analyses computer game culture from a cultural, aesthetic and social point of view. It puts the critical appropriation and continued development of computer games as an artistic medium to centre stage – and at the same time takes a look at the every day use of computer games produced by the arts and entertainments industry. It reflects on the structural changes in the cultural market places and links the emerging game cultures with developments in the fields of contemporary music and art.
A MAZE. Interact at CTM.10 consists of six modules: the one-day Game-Music Symposium, a series of Game-Art Workshops, the Games Culture Circle (GCC) and the Music-Games Exhibition, all presented at the festival's daytime venue HBC. At WMF, the festival's night venue, the Jump’n Run Bonus Cheat club night presents music, graphics and interactive performances informed by game aesthetics. The Global Game Jam (GGJ), an international game design event, will take place within the festival on January 30 & 31 and simultaneously at about 100 locations around the world.
The core program of A MAZE. Interact takes place from January 29 to February 2, while the exhibition will be on display over the course of the whole festival from January 29 till February 6.
