The sixteenth edition of the Sonic Acts festival will take place at different locations in Amsterdam from 26 February to 1 March 2015. More information about the programme will follow this autumn, but you can expect cutting-edge performances, an international conference with thought-provoking lectures and a wide range of concerts, screenings and installations.
The sound installation collective freq_out (of which I am a member) will be kicking off the Sonic Acts Festival with freq_out 9, an installation at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam on Feb 21 2013. I’m delighted that our installation will take place in the same room as an installation of Dan Flavin’s light works.
2/18/13 Tony Conrad conducted a fascinating Masterclass for Sonic Acts Festival at Melkweg Cinema in Amsterdam, where he discussed the origins of his approach to drone music and minimalism with Lamonte Young, his discovery of the flicker with Jack Smith, pythagorean harmonic theory and how to derive protein by eating oatmeal mixed with chicken hearts.
