Unsound Intermission Book and Album Release Date Moved to 15th December. New Album Additions Include SOPHIE / Jlin Collaboration and Weavings Excerpt.

intermission premiere on the 15th

The Unsound Intermission book and album are a key part of this year’s festival, a response to 2020, a year of turmoil and upheaval. The publication was scheduled to be released next week, but there has been a slight delay. The release date has been shifted to 15th December – our apologies, but the wait will be worth it! A full description of both the book and album can be found via our online store (here).


In the meantime, we have some exciting news! JLIN and SOPHIE – two of the biggest names in electronic experimental music – will create a collaborative track for the album. Also added is an excerpt from WEAVINGS, an innovative online collaborative show involving musicians from around the world that was part of this year’s online program, conceived by NICOLÁS JAAR. An excerpt from haunting and beautiful Unsound-commissioned work COMMUNITY OF GRIEVING by ZOSIA HOŁUBOWSKA & JULIA GIERTZ is also a new addition. The album will be mastered by longtime Unsound friend STEFAN BETKE of scape mastering.


In terms of the book, additional texts come from HARMONY HOLIDAY, JT ROANE, STEPHANIE PHILLIPS, ANDREW BROOKS – with an adapted essay from the Machine Listening program – and MAT SCHULZ.


The full list of contributors can be found below. You can purchase the book at the Unsound online store (here), or receive the book and album by becoming a member of Unsound Patreon (link).
