Sonic Circuits


Sonic Circuits showcases the latest artistic uses of technology from a variety of fields. From the commercial to the classical, arcane to mundane, for gear-heads and neophytes, students and pros, Sonic Circuits promises to provide something to intrigue most people. Begun in 1993, Sonic Circuits is a festival with a difference. It comprises a caravan of curated works which travels the world to form the basis for a multitude of events throughout the season. Any musical works or acts which involve electronic technology (e.g., works for electro-acoustic tape, live performance with electronics, video art, new media art, or sound art) may be submitted for program consideration. The twenty to thirty works are offered to more than 70 venues across the globe, and, in addition, the CD of works is sent to numerous radio stations. Entries are curated in four categories: Tape, Video, Score and Live Acts.
