Sonic Acts XIII: The Poetics of Space

The ‘Sonic Acts’ festival will take place at ‘De Balie’ in Amsterdam from the 25th till the 28th of February. As the brochure tells us:

‘Sonic Acts The Poetics of Space is entirely dedicated to the exploration of space in performative and audiovisual art, film, music and architecture. It examines the importance of physical space in times of far-reaching technological impact of spatial designs. ‘You can find the entire brochure and program here: Surely sounds interesting.
