listening cities is the name of KNM Berlin's new sound magazine, dedicated in 2023 to music from three very different metropolitan regions of the world: Kyiv, Lima and Taipei.

Listening to a city does not only mean perceiving its acoustic signatures. The city is first and foremost an organism of human activities and sociocultural agreements. listening cities, therefore, asks current composers and artists from the above-mentioned metropolises about the geographical, social, political, and historical context of their art. Kyiv, Lima, and Taipei are currently in the media spotlight. Whether the Russian war in Ukraine, the violent unrest in Peru, which is primarily based on the social discrimination of the indigenous rural population, or the threatened invasion of mainland China in Taiwan – it is always also about the violation, rejection, and erasure of cultural identities.

listening cities : taipei presents live concerts and interviews with the composers and artists Fang-Yi Lin, Wei-Chih Liu and Tsan-Cheng Wu.
