27. Audio Art Festival


Audio Art is an experimental and postmodernist art of the close of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, which integrates sound and visual arts.

Audio Art presentations appear in the form of the concert, performance and installation stemming from a new concept of sound source: as an object and musical instrument that exist in a particular space and time. Audio Art is a “one-person art”: composer, designer and performer unify the whole process of art creation and performance.

Audio Art Festival presents individual artists from all over the world and the projects they launch.

At the Bunkier Sztuki Gallery, Audio Art Festival will present Edwin van der Heide’s installation Shifting Noise Planes and Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag’s video work BOO84.

As the festival opens, the concert Tuba, Mirum Spargens Sonum will add to it, taking place on 15 November, Friday, at 6 pm. Performed by Edwin van der Heide and Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag.
