Apart from all the names we spoke about last week (Model 500, Rustie, The Haxan Cloak, Ekoplekz, Brokenchord, among many others), there's a lot more to be experienced at Unsound. We're talking discussions, multimedia installations, films and audio-visual sessions that will be the perfect stimulation for our hungry senses. The installations will be at the former Miraculum cosmetics factory and at the Kathedra Gallery. There will be works by Daniel Lopatin (the soul of Oneohtrix Point Never is doing an audio-visual installation alongside Jon Rafman based on the exploration of virtual landscapes in 3D, “Explain”), Raime (the Britons collaborate with Ewelina Aleksandrowicz and Andrzej Wojtas in the creation of an audio-visual environment exploring the notion of the “failure of the already past”) and Ekoplekz (maker of, alongside Jade Boyd, what he describes as a “mystic triangle out of old TVs playing image and sound”). The section is completed with a multi-channel installation by Robin Fox focussing on an audience using cochlear implants (also known as “bionic ears”) and with “Concord”, a musical sculpture by Voldemars Johansons.
Galería Pauza will show “Reversions”, a video work by Manuel Sepulveda (aka Optigram, creator of the artwork for labels like Hyperdub and Citinite), and an exhibition of old sonic postcards made in Poland in the sixties, seventies and eighties, compiled by Mat Schulz and Rui Silva.
Regarding projections, audio-visual duo Jigoku is curating a f ilm program recovering obscure gems of sci-fi related to the central theme of the festival, “Future Shock”. The projections will take place every day of the festival, starting at midnight, at the Pod Baranami cinema. Our documentary “In Search of the Unsound”, produced by PlayGround at the previous edition of the festival, will be shown, too.
Unsound 2011 will take place between the 9th and the 16th of October, at several locations in Krakow, Poland. You can get your tickets here.
