Cologne-based collective FUNKT presents in excerpts the richness and diversity of Cologne’s electronic + sound art scenes. As one of the birthplaces of electronic music, Cologne is still fertile ground for experimentation and exploration and has extraordinarily diverse electronic and sound art scenes. The FUNKT sound art radio programme ambition is to provide as broad an overview as possible, some historical anchor points, niches and insider tips from different generations. Join our music discovery journey, hosted by our main broadcaster Resonance Extra.
