Unsound 2019 Day Four
The final Morning Glory show is on today at 11am, again at Manggha, with Bastarda reinterpreting medieval funeral music. Entry is free.
The discourse program features presentations on solarpunk from Jay Springett, author John Higgs on his new book The Future Starts Here, and Belarusian researcher and electronic musician on Pavel Niakhayeu on music, utopia and social changes. Discussions include an exploration of the connections between solidarity movements and artistic practise, as well as an artist talk focusing on how the HHY & The Kampala Unit came into being. The discourse program takes place in Pałac Krzysztofory, and entry is free.
Today’s screenings at Kino Pod Baranami include Black to Techno, a short film exploring techno’s relationship to Detroit's black music scene; Stabat Mater Dolorosa, a punk musical set to the music of Siksa; and Anthropocene, a depiction of the ways our species continues to mistreat and change our planet. Screenings require an additional ticket on top of the pass.
A workshop on queer sounds launches today at Spółdzielnia Ogniwo, while Hevre hosts one on hacking nature documentaries. Out of the Woods writer Luke Turner is leading a walk into Las Wolski; called Queering the Forest, it will involve him reading from his memoir Out of the Woods.
A streaming session at Busz is hosted by Noizz today, featuring CCL, Baby Meelo and Beniovska. Entry is free, or you can watch online.
The evening show takes place at Wieliczka Salt Mine today. As it will take a long time to get everyone down, please try to be in Wieliczka as soon as the doors open, or you risk missing the start of the concert or not getting in. Train to Wieliczka leaves from Kraków Główny station at 5:09pm. Philip Sherburne will play an ambient set from the moment the doors open. Shows include French electroacoustic artist Félicia Atkinson, whose music explores the relationship between inner and outer worlds. One of the best instrumental bands in the world, Australian avant-jazz trio The Necks are known for longform improvised pieces exploring the most hypnotic qualities of sound. Tonight, their unique vision will fuse with Sinfonietta Cracovia’s full orchestral sound, led by renowned Israeli conductor Ilan Volkov of Tectonics. The show is sold out.
You can return to Kraków Główny on the 304 city bus. The final stop is very close to our mid-week party destination, Szpitalna 1. Oakland-based collective Club Chai and Berlin-based collective Room 4 Resistance take over. Both collectives focus on queer femme / non-binary producers and DJs, and an ethos of community-building. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door. Please note, this event is not included in the Weekly Pass.
The Festival Office is open every day until the end of the festival, between 12pm and 6pm. If you have a pass, that’s the place to pick up your wristband. You can also buy tickets here, but please check the availability on our ticket page first. The address is Pałac Krzysztofory, Szczepańska 2.
