Now going into its fourth edition, Unsound Festival New York is an extension of Unsound in Krakow, Poland, with a focus on exploratory music from an international network of cities and scenes. These diverse sounds, all interconnected, draw from many milieus: experimental, classical, post-classical, techno, improv, dub. What unites them is a shared sense of aesthetic investigation and appreciation for curious ears. As always, we’re interested in imaginative ideas and a willingness to take risks, musical and otherwise. With a mix of emerging artists and musical pioneers, the program favors projects and pairings commissioned by Unsound in Poland and in New York, with some projects being presented for the first time. All of Unsound's iterations — in Krakow, New York, London, Adelaide, and Minsk — celebrate an international mix of sounds and movements, making the festival a unique cross-border artistic experiment.
A lot of people like Unsound.
