Sónar is heading to the United
States for the first time with a debut event in New York on May 12th,
thanks to its collaboration with the Institut
Ramon Llull. Featuring a day of special concerts and performances
at the Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC),
SonarSound NY will showcase the best of Catalan and
American artists, combining multimedia art ideas with experimental electronica
and the latest generation of pop culture.
Sónar is the premiere electronic music and multimedia art
festival held in the heart of Barcelona
for three days every June. Last year, more than 80 thousand people
enjoyed a musical line-up that combined major names in today’s electronic music
scene with a strong focus on experimental programming. Sónar is a meeting
point for fans from all over the world eager for new ideas and for
professionals, who find that the festival atmosphere is the ideal place to
display their products and make contacts.
The SonarSound NY bill
includes installations by Marcel·lí
Antúnez and ReacTable,
featuring Ikue Mori; the
mysterious ambient of Balago;
the soundtrack, performed live, by Árbol
and Fibla for a film by Taiwan’s Tsai
Ming-Liang; the extravagant pop of Hidrogenesse; hip-hop in a trio format with the Del Palo Soundsystem; two sets by the
Barcelona dj d.a.r.y.l.; the
highly unconventional rhythm of the Americans (both ex-residents of Barcelona) DJ/Rupture and Prefuse 73; and visuals by No-Domain.
