The Krakow festival lets out more of its line-up for 2015.
Unsound Festival has announced further details of this year’s programme, including special projects, film screenings and additional artists.
Tim Hecker will present a live version of the Ephemera concept, which last year saw Geza Schoen create perfume in response to drone, noise and bass loops. Originally premiered at Unsound Toronto, Hecker will perform while an “olfactory component” is piped into the performance space.
Also announced is a pre-festival event on Saturday October 10, which sees Max Loderbauer collaborate with Poland’s Jacek Sienkiewicz for a live set based on the ambient EP Ridges, with visuals by Portuguese artist Pedro Maia.
As well as a film programme curated by Cherrystones and Lovely Jon, Unsound will present a set of projects responding to the Hejnał Mariacki, a traditional five-note tune played by a trumpeter each hour from the tower of Krakow’s Mariacki Church. Artists including Tim Hecker, Rob Mazurek and an unannounced musician will play in the main square and make passers-by unwitting audience members.
Though this year’s theme is “surprise”, with many artists remaining unannounced, Unsound has announced a few of the names who will be appearing, including the premiere of a new live show from The Phantom presenting Baltic Beat, Prostitutes, Michał Wolski, Lutto Lento and NHJ.
Tim Hecker’s Ephemera show, the collaboration between Loderbauer and Sienkiewicz and film programme require the purchase of extra tickets on top of the main festival passes. Full details can be found here.
Unsound takes place from October 11 to October 11, and features performances from Shackleton, Holly Herndon, Jlin, Visionist and more. Festival passes are sold out, but individual tickets are still available for some events from the Unsound website.
