9 Futures: Sounds Fragmenting

An audio-visual exploration of nine of Europe's most innovative music festivals, where technology, art and social experiments define the agenda.

Water on Mars and Donald Trump in the presidential race – it's hard to predict what the future holds in store. The same is true in the world of music festival, which today offers sound design and production that constantly challenges the boundaries of what both sound and a festival is. In '9 Futures: Sound Fragmenting' the director and The Wire journalist Nathaniel Budzinski travels around to some of Europe's most innovative sound festivals and films while the experiments run amok. Like an audio-visual explorer, who investigates and documents from the epicentre of the social-utopian experiments that festivals (also) are. From interactive sound spaces to parrot singing – there are no limits as to what the creation of sound involves or results in. And even though both the format and content differ depending on if you are in Tromsø, Riga or Manchester, there is a clear purpose for all the festivals: to throw their guests into the unknown and to dissolve the idea of what sound and community is and could be.
