sonic art for the visually minded

Sonica is a programme dedicated to world-class sonic arts, presenting emerging British talent alongside exceptional international artists in collaboration with renowned co-producers and venues. Curated by Cathie Boyd, Patrick Dickie and Graham McKenzie and produced by Cryptic, Sonica gives a UK platform to performances of exceptional and rarely seen work.

“If you want to experience the thrilling interface where music, visual art, theatre and digital technology meet, hasten to Glasgow” The Times

“Sonica is a generous place. Risks are taken but fun is had, too. Sonica is no circus. This is the future of contemporary music.” 

“…Sonica is the most avant-garde event this side of the Fringe, and a
welcome addition to Glasgow’s artistic repertoire” Metro

Sonica was launched in Glasgow in November 2012 at Tramway and has been presented in Aarhus, Aberdeen, Brighton, Den Bosch, Edinburgh, Huddersfield, London, Lulea and Norwich.

Since 2012, Sonica has presented more than 80 events, including performances, installations, exhibitions and screenings by over 150 artists from Australia, France, Ireland, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, UK and the USA, reaching over 13,000 people.
