We can’t close our ears. Therefore sound can be both a bliss and a disturbance in life. Sound can affect our emotions immediately, without any thought or explanation. It's an expression that is increasingly used and loved by artists and audience and there is a need for events and opportunities to put the light on what it really is: an artistic expression of its own right.
The audience will be given the opportunity to experience installations, videos live performances and hear music from scores of experimental music of different genres, from ambient, drone and noise to electroacoustics – and collaborations between sound artists and comic book writers in live sessions.
