BOZAR ELECTRONIC ARTS FESTIVAL & KRAAK present
SONIC ARTS REVISITED
+ Gordon Mumma’s 'The Dresden Interleaf 13 February 1945'
— A collab between KRAAK & BOZAR electronic Arts Festival to celebrate the 50th birthday of The Sonic Arts Group performance at BOZAR.
In april 1967 the Sonic Arts Group scandalized the Brussels audience with a series of avant-garde concerts at the Palace of Fine Arts in Brussels. The Sonic Arts Group (or union) was a young group made out back then unknown composers, but nowaday’s legends Robert Ashley, David Behrman, Gordon Mumma and Alvin Lucier.
50 years later, their influence on the contemporary avant-garde is beyond any doubt, so KRAAK and BEAF celebrate the birthday of this happening with a concert by David Behrman, and performances of two youngsters — Francesco Cavaliere and WIDT — who are inspired by the innovations of the Group.
