Sonic Acts says Thank You

We look back on a very successful and well attended festival. Highlights included the three concerts by CC Hennix & The Chora(s)san Time-Court Mirage, the concert by Pauline Oliveros, the keynote lecture by George Dyson, and a full atrium for the Long String Instrument performance by Ellen Fullman in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. We had a great and concentrated audience – super-silent on Sunday evening – who helped make the festival an intense experience. NRC, De Volkskrant, Trouw, Het Parool, Metropolis M and Gonzo Circus covered the festival in depth with interviews, previews and reviews. You can also read various reports on our own website. If you missed this festival, or would like to enjoy some aspects of it again, the book Travelling Time, featuring interviews with musicians who performed at Sonic Acts XIV, and articles by theorists who lectured at the conference, is for sale in the Sonic Acts shop. Sonic Acts and Important Records also released a sublime CD of CC Hennix & The Chora(s)san Time-Court MirageLive at the Grimm Museum, in Berlin. Also available via the website. Re-living parts the festival will soon be possible too: the live streams of the conference will be archived online on the Sonic Acts website, and will be announced through our Facebook. Sonic Acts XIV was only possible thanks to the enormous efforts of all of the crew-members, partners and especially our volunteers: THANK YOU! We are interested in hearing your opinions, and would appreciate if you would take the time to answer a few questions (we promise it won’t take more than 5 minutes). We’ll be giving away 10 CD’s of CC Hennix & The Chora(s)san Time-Court Mirage among respondents. We have already started preparing for the next Kontraste Festival in Krems (Austria), which will take place from 12 to 14 October 2012
