The excellent relationship between the Sónar festival and In-Edit is no secret, and there have been many occasions on which both events have collaborated, publicly or behind the scenes. But in 2021, the relationship goes a step deeper and, to mark the occasion of SónarCCCB, Sónar will present a selection of three audio-visual works within the framework of In-Edit,
Sónar + In-Edit will include a selection of three documentaries with electronic music as their central axis: Sisters with Transistors, about the pioneers of electronic music, A Symphony of Noise. Matthew Herbert’s Revolution, the definitive documentary about the Kentish musician, and Laurent Garnier: Off the Record, which gives us exclusive access, over a three-year period, to one of the world’s best DJs.
Sónar + In-Edit will take place in Hall 5 of the Aribau Multicines cinemas, on Sunday October 31, coinciding with the celebration of the AI and Music Festival and SónarCCCB, which will take place from October 27th to 30th.
Dazzling tribute to electronic pioneers, from those who conceived the sounds of the future in the BBC labs (Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram) to those who shone in the ‘70s (Laurie Spiegel, Suzanne Ciani), narrated by Laurie Anderson.
Intense and humorous journey into the mind of British DJ, producer and composer Matthew Herbert – who exposes his continuous search for everyday or unheard sounds with which to make music, as well as revealing the political background of his work.
Three years tracing the footsteps of the French DJ and producer through booths around the world, paint the portrait of one of the godfathers of techno-house music while charting the history of the last great musical revolution from the ‘80s until now. On the decks too, are techno titans like Jeff Mills.
