Sonic Acts announces 2022 Biennial, opening with group exhibition one sun after another, Sept 30 – Oct 23

13 September 2022

Sonic Acts is announcing its 2022 Biennial, running from September 30 to October 23 across various venues in Amsterdam. The biennial celebrates Sonic Acts’ nearly three decades of creative productions while provoking questions of care and collectivity through a series of site-specific interventions and music performances. The program will open with one sun after another exhibition that draws up Sonic Acts’ research focus on climatic change and crisis. 

one sun after another offers a constructive approach to environmental storytelling, with the included works inadvertently responding to each other through their perspective on time geographyThe group exhibition explores relationships between time, nature, and industry, tracing degrees of ecological impact across various visual works and interventions. The works range from research into cartographic languages and non-hierarchical technologies to photography, video, and field recordings. Participating artists include Louis Braddock Clarke, Zuzanna Zgierska, Lucky Dragons, the 2021 Prix Marcel Duchamp nominee Julian Charierre, among others.

one sun after another takes place from 30 September to 23 October at W139, Zone2Source, and Het HEM. Visit Sonic Acts’ website to purchase tickets to the exhibition and the entire biennial program.

Lyra Pramuk draws a line through a mysterious, triumphant, joyous mix of old & new, familiar & unfamiliar sounds for AQNB

16 November 2018

Lyra Pramuk shares a mix, premiering on AQNB today. The Berlin-based, classically-trained singer, composer, and performance artist is known for her haunting vocal tracks that are tugged out of the organic and into the ethereal realms by delicate electronic manipulations. Committed to the self-actualising potential of feeling, empathy, and listening — as well as a collective, affirmative action — the music is often transcendent and always beguiling.

“It’s probably the angriest or most intense mix I’ve made, but it’s quite empowered too”, writes Pramuk about this ‘Self-Assembly mix’ that includes music by contemporaries like Stine Janvin, Klein, Laurel Halo and Yves Tumor, alongside creative pioneers like Meredith Monk, Lena Platonos, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Psychic TV. Among the more unexpected elements of the selection are prodigious West African songs by Khalifa Ould Eide & Dimi Mint Abba from Mauritania and Aby Ngana Diop of Senegal, as well as some Scandinavian electro folk by Hedningarna. Together, the emotive synth experiments and DIY modular bursts dip in and out from distant voices speaking words that are both familiar and unfamiliar, as a fragile thread that ties the shared story of humanity together.**
