"As a cultural institution, the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe holds a unique position worldwide. It responds to the rapid developments in information technology as well as the changing social structures. Production and research, exhibitions, symposia, concerts and events as well as documentation all take place in one place. Thus, the ZKM is regarded as a leading center linking art and digital technology. Founded in 1989 the ZKM moved in the impressive building of a former ammunition factory by 1997.

The ZKM | Institute for Music und Acoustics combines artistic work with research and development and is therefore an international forum for international discourse and exchange. By holding concerts, symposia and festivals on a regular basis it brings together composers, musicians, musicologists, music software developers and listeners interested in contemporary music." [2]
