City Sonic 2013 - 07 to 21.09.2013 (opening 06.09 à 18.30)

After celebrating its 10th anniversary in September 2012 in several cities of the Federation Wallonia-Brussels, City Sonic festival, initiated by Transcultures, Interdisciplinary Center for Sound and Digital Cultures, in co-production with le manège Mons and in partnership with the City of Mons gives importance to the sound emergences (Belgian and European young talents) for its eleventh edition, which will focus on the city centre of Mons.
The concept of innovation is more than ever at the heart of the festival with forty artists presenting new forms of instrument and creations to be found in unusual places, daring collaborations that multiply (artist/engineer, musician/poet ...).

The opening of City Sonic#11 begins with a guided tour by the artists on September 6th at 6pm leaving the site des Arbalestriers to the Salle Saint-Georges on the Grand'Place. The opening of this edition of City Sonic is also associated, for the event part, to the European project Park In Progress will occupy the site des anciens Abattoirs with a "European Night of young creation."
Park In Progress is a European mobility programme (supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union), which gathers together young artists and young professional creators taking part in the different stages of the production of an artwork, around a joint project that requests transdisciplinary experience.

Après avoir fêté dignement ses 10 ans en septembre 2012 dans plusieurs villes de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, le festival City Sonic, initié par Transcultures, centre interdisciplinaire des cultures numériques et sonores en co-production avec le manège Mons et en partenariat avec la Ville de Mons, fait la part belle aux émergences sonores (jeunes talents belges et européens) pour sa onzième édition qui sera concentrée sur le centre-ville montois.

Le concept d'innovation sera plus que jamais au cœur du festival avec une quarantaine d'artistes qui présentent de nouvelles formes d'instrument et des créations à découvrir dans des lieux insolites, des collaborations audacieuses qui se multiplient (artiste/ingénieur, musicien/poète...).

Le vernissage de City Sonic#11 commence par une visite guidée en présence des artistes le 6 septembre à 18h30 partant du site des Arbalestriers vers la Salle Saint-Georges sur la Grand'Place.
