The theme of last year’s Unsound Festival was Dislocation. Dislocation and its various interpretations – geographical, physical, temporal, spatial. The festival has grown globally and hosts numerous offshoot events all around the world. Its flagship event takes place in Krakow, Poland each October. Several SHAPE artists performed at the 2016 edition. Watch a video exploring last year’s theme as well as the documentation of performances (SHAPE’s Stine Janvin and Aisha Devi also appear) and interviews with organizers and artists.

The 2016 edition of Ljubljana’s SONICA festival, titled SONIC.ARCHITECTURES, was dedicated to sound and architecture.

Norwegian DJ and producer Charlotte Bendiks was one of the several SHAPE artists performing at The Hague’s TodaysArt festival last weekend (23-25 Sept 2016). Her DJ sets focus on sexy dance and body music. Although her main genre is classic house, her sets are inspired and influenced by music ranging from disco to African groove and Latin beats. She is widely known for creating euphoric, hot and sweaty dance floors. Doing live vocals and percussion as well as integrating other musicians has become somewhat of a trademark for this girl – transforming the whole performance more into a happening instead of just a simple DJ set.
