THEME
The main theme of the first edition of the festival was POST – indicating an exploration of sonic future and artistic purification. Selected artworks had a common search for their own meaning, surpassing hyper media saturation whether through sound or through image. The presented authors were seeking concluded systems, new languages and forms through their experiments, processes and products. Each artist was engaged in devising his own universe and building new aesthetic relations with components of scientific approach. If purification is noise, what kind of the noise is it? How glittering can be the light and how many units does it take to produce a unity?
