“the thrilling interface where music, visual art, theatre and digital technology meet”
The Times on Sonica
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, Sonica gives a UK platform to performances of exceptional and rarely-seen work.
Produced by Cryptic – Sonica can be festival-like in its scale and ambitions, however it can just as readily be represented by a single work popping up in bespoke locations around the world.
Sonica was launched in Glasgow in November 2012 and has since toured to Aarhus, Aberdeen, Den Bosch, Edinburgh, Huddersfield, London, Lulea and Norwich.
Sonica 2013 (31 Oct – 3 Nov) presented eight UK premières, two Scottish premières and four Sonica commissions as part of one long weekend of sonic art encompassing music, performance, sound, multimedia and visual art.
