Sonic architectures in movement, electronic and acoustic works from middle age and contemporary repertoire, new Sincronie 2008commissions, prismatic visual projections and world premiere videos, radio-galaxies sounds and screenings
Sincronie 2008 expanded itself and for the first time become a festival, with different happenings within a whole week in which better develop the topic and its several faceting, as in hypothetic journey that starting from planet Heart, throughout a star gate, bring us into the deep spaces up to an unimaginable border.
Thinking about the possibile connections between sound, video and audiovisuals with the science of Astronomy, Digicult decided devide the curatorial project in 2 parts. The first part “Space(and)Art” was a videoscreening of some videos on the topic, by the reknowned project The Arts Catalyst, that took place at O’ gallery in Milan.
The second part “Radioastronomy” was a double concert at Casa dell’Energia in Milan: the first gig was a pre-recorded live radio performance by Radioqualia’s member Honor Harger, the second one was the live performance of the Italian artists Tez last work, “reSUNance”.
