SONIC ELECTRONICS FESTIVAL
Iklectik Art Lab
Thursday 30 May - Sunday 02 June 2019
Workshop, Concert & Talks
Tickets: £5 Online / £8 OND / £65 Workshop
SEF borns with the need to create a place where to combine DIGITAL ARTS with ANALOGUE DEVICES and it is interested in showing processes of technological evolution. Within computation the term DIGITAL, and its contrary, ANALOGUE, are frequently used to denote the difference between a numerical-digital and a physical model and help to separate out theoretical abstract computation from any particular concrete computational, and thus material, iteration.
SEF has as a reference the use of CODE as an original TECHNOLOGY for making MUSIC. It enjoys the DIY and HANDMADE spirit which ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, CODERS, MAKERS & HACKERS share. The activity fosters a community of tool DEVELOPERS and creative PRACTITIONERS interested in supporting creative practice through DIGITAL and ANALOGUE tools. The festival also opens to OS / OH practices in a counter-laboratory and participatory process. With the collaboration of Iklectik Art LAB, SEF will set for many days as an experiment that shows an exhibition, workshops and concerts. With this hybrid format, SEF wants to increase the audience experience and make them participant.
SEF also counts with the participation of POPklik, a London based collective in charge of the creative visual communication of the festival. SEF is curated by Laura Netz, curator, artist, and director of EAM elektronische-art-and-music, a curatorial agency and record label, altogether with a network of collaborators and artists who support and facilitate the event.
