Dark Ecology comes to the Sonic Acts Festival in Amsterdam

From 26 February – 1 March 2015, the Sonic Acts Festival will take place in Amsterdam. The research that we have been conducting for Dark Ecology, and the Dark Ecology Journey in October 2014, was crucial to the development of this year’s Sonic Acts festival theme The Geologic Imagination. Many of the lectures in the Sonic Acts conference are thematically linked to Dark Ecology. Timothy Morton will speak at Sonic Acts, and the presentations by Graham Harman, Mark Williams, Douglas Kahn, smudge studio (Elizabeth Ellsworth & Jamie Kruse), Ele Carpenter, Michael Welland and Raviv Ganchrow promise to be extremely relevant as well. The masterclass of Graham Harman – The Anthropocene Now (on 25 February) – is a co-production with Dark Ecology, as is the critical writing workshop Describing the Indescribable in collaboration with The Wire and Gonzo (Circus) from 25 February – 1 March. Another highlight of the festival will be two Dark Ecology commissions which premiere at the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ on Friday 27 February. BJ Nilsen ’s perform their new audiovisual collaboration unearthed, and Jana Winderen performs her new work Pasvikdalen. On the final day of the Sonic Acts Festival we will take a field trip to Australia Harbour in the port of Amsterdam for the second version of Raviv Ganchrow’s work-in-progress Long Wave Synthesis, another Dark Ecology commission. The first prototype was presented in Kirkenes in October 2014 – the second version promises to be an even more impressive infrasound experience. More information: www.sonicacts.com/2015
