Sonica - combining music, visual art, opera, film, theatre and multimedia - to launch in Glasgow
Programme dedicated to sonic arts with a strong visual element
Sonica 2012, produced by Cryptic, launches in Glasgow with a 10-day showcase from November 8-18 as part of The Year of Creative Scotland. The programme is 'dedicated to developing and promoting world-class sonic arts, all with a strong visual element'. As such the cutting-edge works combine live music, visual art, opera, film, theatre and multimedia by emerging and established UK and international sound artists.
Highlights include the world premiere of Remember Me, a miniature, multimedia opera in a desk by UK sound artist and composer Claudia Molitor; Netherlands-based 33 1/3 Collective with the UK premiere of their digital interpretation of Bartok’s Duke Bluebeard’s Castle; a 'synesthetic laser experience' by Australian audio-visual performance artist, Robin Fox; and Sandglasses, a living musical installation for four cellos, by Lithuanian composer Justé Janulyté, performed by the Gaida Ensemble.
