Sonic Environments III is a Live Showcase presented by Vaagner
Originally founded in 2018, Sonic Environments was established as a live event series revolving around the importance of physical, sonic interference in the digital age. Each edition featured a series of artists that challenge pre-conceived notions of genre, performance and medium within a given space.
The multidisciplinary musical performances of the night will touch upon the topic of sonic interferences in the digital age, prompting the question whether music is currently caught up in a cultural transgression that entices us to look back rather then forward, or if we are experiencing an age of unprecedented, cross cultural exploration, which sees all musical fields of practice being put into question and reexamined.
