November 3 – 26, 2015



This year’s SONICA festival in search for transitory embeddedness of diverse media of artistic performances, follows the lines of opening, linking and division. The uncaptured nature of sound as the main point of transitoriness is set to embody not only through and into different media through which we are addressed by this years’ artists but through experience, knowledge and expertness as well.
We would like to share this aim with the public and weave the linkage of transmission not only in different forms of artistic events but also in the form of workshops, artist talks, talks between artists and thus create a polygon which echoes also outside the sole confrontation with the artistic piece or performance. The concert program is broadened with eight free admission workshops all related to the sound and music someway.
This years’ SONICA exhibition will be dedicated to the work of the bassist and electronic musician known as KETEV (sound artist Yair Elazar Glotman) who will
dissect contrabass to the multilayerness of the sound installation, performance, composition material in the relation between physical materiality of contrabass and the astonishing play of deep sound frequencies.
SONICA is bringing four diverse concert events: the opening gourman sound menu with Rashad Becker and audio-visual spectacle oqpo_oooo by Alexa Augiera with the
sustenance of local Ontervjabbit; cinematic travelling through light and colours at the  Kino-Uho evening event in Kinoteka with Robert Curgenven and Wolfgang Spahn;
a visit of concert underground with Jerusalem In My Heart substantiated with three local masters of electronics from the CTRL N compilation: A Lesson of Slovene Electronics; and finally a dance event with one of the most exploding star of the dark techno and drum mash-up, a New Zealand FIS. You are welcome to attend all four concerts with a single festival ticket.

At the end of the festival there is a celebration of the second anniversary of MoTA Point! It is connected with the closure of Biennial of Independent Illustration. At MoTA Point the fest will start with the program which shall for now remain a secret, and at 10 PM we will move to the nearby Argentinski Park where we will be introduced to the dark portrait of love from duo LEALUDVIK.
