Southern Sonic is a new festival from the Center for Contemporary Arts (CAC) for audiences seeking new aural experiences. The event will run from Thursday, May 10 to Sunday, May 13 at various locations across the city, presenting local and regional artists working at the outer boundaries of experimental music, sound art and sound-based visual art. With a host of world premiers and new collaborations, the festival will feature work that explodes and recombines genres–from experimental hip-hop to avant garde chamber music; utopian installation environments to sonified architecture; remixes of vintage cinema to airborne music made by drones.
