The National Reina Sofia Art Centre will host on 13th and 14th of November the HyperSounds, a series of concerts, DJ sessions, screenings and lectures concerning the sonorous investigation. The best national and international artists will meet in the Spanish capital to experiment with all the possibilities that sound can offer.
The event will be held in five different spaces, divided between the Sabatini building, the Conference Room 3A, that will host the works of Edwin van der Heide; the Nouvel building for concerts, DJ sessions, presentations and projections and the Auditorium 400, where the sound experimentation will be shown through different expressions and musical languages.
Close to 20 activities will be presented: they highlight the DJ sessions as Rustie and Mary Anne Hobbs, the directs of Various Production, Tender Forever and Shit & Shine, and two sound installations by the artist Edwin van der Heide. On the other hand, the most outstanding national artists will be the star in the Nouvel Café sessions. Great examples are Medialab Prado and the Music Technology Group from the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona.
Other names to stand out are Svreca, Annie Hall or HD Substance, plus a special guests arrived from London:s Rustie with his mix of hip-hop beats and wonky beats, and Mary Anne Hobbs, muse of the more experimental post-dubstep sounds.
On the other hand, the programming will be completed with the premiere of the movie “Amplified Gesture”, documentary that accompanies ‘Manafon‘, the new album of the British musician and ex member of 80’s group Japan, David Sylvian.
The public can toggle between scheduled specific concerts, installations, performances, screenings, etc. In addition, all the HyperSounds activities are totally free.
