City Sonic #13 Festival @ Mons2015

 

Edito

City-Sonic-2015_Affiche-Web_Mons2015_Transcultures-2015This thirteenth edition of City Sonic, an international festival dedicated to the diversity and creativity of sound arts, proposes, in the framework of Mons2015 European Capital of Culture, sound itineraries which transform the city center of Mons into a hub connected to the audio planet. With City Sonic (curator: Philippe Franck), historical, industrial, public or private locations (indoor/outdoor) become sonic and poetic places that lead all public, to an active listening. For this special expanded 2015 edition, City Sonic extends its itinerary from the railway station to Arsonic (new ‘theatre of listening’) through the Carreì des Arts (with the Mons Art School), La Maison du Design and la Grand’ Place but also a series of places in town, invested by artists.

Combining a prospective, poetic and playful approach, City Sonic@Mons 2015 also offers mobile performance, concerts in unusual settings, a Sonic Garden Party (performances in private gardens), Sonic Kids workshops, a sonic cocktail (outdoor urban mixes), the Sonic (web) Radio programme… distilled throughout the festival of adventurous sounds.
