Unsound Dislocation is a series of audiovisual performances hold in several countries of the post-Soviet times by one of the leading festivals of electronic and avant-garde music — Unsound festival.
Unsound Dislocation came out from the festival format and now leaving the metropolises and capitals, it turns to the residents of the small-scale «peripheries», suggesting to immerse into the incredible atmosphere of Unsound. It is decentralized perspective, which underlines the uniqueness of the local cultures and empowers the local artists to cooperate with each other for a further development.
Murmansk ambient producer Secret Negative opens the event by his floaty set, created specially for Unsound Dislocation Murmansk. The highlight of the event is a performance by U.S. artist NIVHEK (Liz Harris/Grouper) and Berliner visual artist MFO (Marcel Weber). Together they present a new work called «After its own death», made during their residency in Murmansk.
Paradoxically minimalist, both harsh and dreamlike, «After its own death» explores landscape, nostalgia and isolation of the Polar region via image and sound. After a premiere in Murmansk in Aurora Cinema the work will be presented at Unsound Krakow and London’s Barbican Centre.
In co-producing of the event participates local partner Fridaymilk, an independent curating organisation based in Murmansk, together with Inversia, audiovisual festival over the Polar Circle. The event is presented by Unsound and Goethe-Institut St. Petersburg.
