Unsound Intermission takes place online between 1st – 11th October. Check out the schedule, including collaborations between musicians, commissioned A/V works, a sleep concert, dance and meditation workshops, guided walks, custom-built virtual worlds, experimental webinar sessions, community listening events and tours. On top of this program are discussion panels, which will be added next week.
The HQ for the online program is the schedule on the Unsound website, with links to program elements – some of which require registration. Meanwhile, a freshly launched Unsound Discord will function as a meeting place where the audience can find out what’s currently happening, or just hang out and chat, sometimes engaging directly with specific projects, even conversing with artists and curators presenting work during the festival.
The opening show of this year’s edition is Weavings, a durational improvisation conceived and co-curated by Nicolás Jaar, structured in the manner of a long fabric of sound, with performers playing with the artists coming before and after them. Performers so far confirmed include Aho Ssan, Angel Bat Dawid, Dirar Kalash, Ellen Fullman, Księżyc, Laraaji, Ka Baird, , Jaar himself, Paweł Szamburski, Raphael Roginski, Resina, Rolando Hernandes and Wukir Suryadi & Rully Shabara of Senyawa.
