Cryptic
Sonica 2017

Thu 26 October — Sun 5 November 2017

Sonica, Cryptic’s biennial festival of world-class visual sonic arts, returns to Glasgow for eleven days this autumn.

Highlights at CCA include Heather Lander’s mesmerising audiovisual installation Nearer Future, accompanied by a live performance of Telian for Swedish nyckelharpa by Robert Bentall, and Manuel Rocha Iturbide’s Zzzzzzzzz with a record player spontaneously making noises that sound suspiciously like… snoring? In Singularity, an audiovisual collaboration between Solveig Settemsdal and Kathy Hinde, we see an isolated point of white light take on complex forms accompanied by evolving, clustered layers of sound, or take a VR journey to the land of indigenous elder Nyarri Morgan and experience a dramatic clash between the traditional and Western worlds in Lynette Wallworth’s Collisions.
