As part of the We are Europe program, Insomnia festival invites Reworks Festival, Reworks Agora (Thessaloniki, Greece), Sónar and Sónar+D (Barcelona, Spain) to curate artists and panels that reflect their artistic and cultural values.
The invited festivals will present acts that left a mark on their own programs. On Thursday, Fantastikoi Hxoi, a re-edit project from Athens that draw material mainly from obscure Greek psych and folk tunes will open the Norwegian We are Europe program.
On Friday, Spanish duo bRUNA & Wooky, key figures in Spanish electronic music and co-directors of Lapsus Records, will present their “Archives” live performance with visual artist Alba G. Corral. N.M.O., a Spanish-Norwegian duo continuously exploring music as an art form, will perform a mix of techno, IDM and hardcore rave structured music. Ghanaian Ata Kak, one of the key performances of Sónar 2016 will deliver his strange mix of highlife and Western style rap. The Rattler Proxy, a Greek duo who played its first show at Reworks festival in 2011, and visonary German techno artist Kassem Mosse – curated by Reworks Festival – will close the two stages.
On Saturday, a panel will approach the We are Europe annual topic: cultural entrepreneurship. It will gather together entrepreneurs from Spain, Greece and Norway. The panel will focus on links and similarity between practices from Southern and Northern Europe.
On Wednesday, before the event opening, Dirty Electronics will hold a workshop curated by Sónar to build visual data by turning voice into code.
