Sónar’s editions of AI and Music S+T+ARTS & SónarCCCB are set to take place this week with more than 100 activities, concerts, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, screenings, and audiovisual capsules will fill the spaces of the CCCB every day, from Thursday 28th to Saturday 30, from 11 am to midnight. On Friday and Sunday, musical activities are held in the Plaza Mayor of Poble Espanyol, between 10 pm and 4 am. All the shows can be experienced standing up and without social distancing.
Coinciding with the SónarCCCB festival, on the nights of Friday 29th and Saturday 30th, OFFSónar by Night is set to celebrate the return of clubbing to Barcelona with Nina Kraviz and Laurent Garnier, for two extraordinary sessions at the Hivernacle of Poble Espanyol. Other musical highlights include performances by Koreless, Leon Vynehall, Mouse on Mars, a special collaboration between Cora Novoa & The Artifacts featuring Tirador (A/V set), and a vocal ensemble formed by American artist Holly Herndon with Maria Arnal and Tarta Relena.
The program of lectures and presentations will focus on the transformative potential of artificial intelligence in music, the design of new digital spaces and imaginaries, new digital economies, sustainability, and the city of the future. The virtual star of Thursday 28th is an artificial intelligence that will play the role of DJ in the Pati de les Dones of the CCCB, playing all day without human intervention a selection of music created by the same AI from the music of hundreds of sessions by other DJs
All activities will be face-to-face and much of the offer of AI and Music S+T+ARTS Festival and SónarCCCB will also be available to stream online, produced by betevé, presented by Estrella Damm and with the collaboration of the Institut Ramon Llull, through sonar.es and beteve.cat.
