Music– Body – Performance – Sound – Theory @ Sonorities Festival 22-27 March 2012

Two Thousand + TWELVE

<<< International symposium focusing on music and the body >>>

The edition of Two Thousand + TWELVE will run in parallel with the Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music. It will focus on innovative relationships between music and the body. In particular, we will examine works that provocatively explore the combination of body and technology, while delving into the sonic world of the body itself.

We are proud to announce dancer, choreographer and philosopher Susan Kozel and BioMuse System creator Ben Knapp as keynote speakers for the symposium.
