SONAR 2002 PROGRAMME PREVIEW

For the ninth consecutive year, SÓNAR is once again an essential venue for
those wishing to discover the latest trends in electronic music. A meeting
point, highly receptive to the pulse of the avant-garde, that offers to a
varied public the formats of a sound laboratory, a leisure area, a museum, a
conference and professional convention hall. Music, audiovisual arts,
digital creation and thought converge in this absolutely essential event.

As in previous editions, SÓNAR once again anticipates and offers a detailed
scan of avant-garde creation of our times and opens the way to proposals
that have a specific and seminal impact on electronic culture. The programme
is open, rich in nuances and for another consecutive year embraces different
artistic manifestations (music, film and electronic art), patent testimony
to the ever increasing promiscuity amongst disciplines.

Sound manipulation and rhythm research, the new forms of landscaping and a
spirit for experimentation are the defining characteristics of a new
generation of artists whom SÓNAR BY DAY has opted for. The repertoire of
artists -Cex, Dntel, Lali Puna, Donna Regina, Static, Isan, Wobbly, Balago-
come from fields such as indie, pop, experimentation or contemporary music,
and coincide in their use of digital tools with which they produce pieces
beyond classification by means of microscopic sounds, glitches and abstract,
highly emotive melodies.

Within the music programme of SÓNAR2002, the showcases and SONARLAB standout
once again as presentation formats for the work of record labels and
artistic collectives. In this editions SÓNAR will offer an overview of the
productions and latest releases of renowned international labels -Morr
Music, City Centre Offices, Staalplaat, Karaoke Kalk- with special emphasis
on the Californian electronic scene represented by Musork, Tigerbeat6 and
Plug Research. Special mention must be given to the participation of record
labels from countries that normally have limited resources for promoting
their national production such as Escuadrón Sudaca (Venezuela).

Convinced that leisure and experimentation are not necessarily antagonistic,
SÓNAR BY NIGHT once again opts for a programme full of stylistic nuances
that go beyond the usual club context. Its three stages -SONARCLUB,
SONARPARK Y SONARPUB- will offer very adventurous proposals such as Andy
Votel or Sirconical as well as great names of dance music such as Richie
Hawtin, Carl Cox or Óscar Mulero. Other highlights are the appearance of the
kings of techno-pop Pet Shop Boys, the live soundtrack from the film by
Jean Painlevé "The Sounds of Science" which will be interpreted by Yo La
Tengo, and the dj set performed by the British Alison Goldfrapp.

Although SÓNAR dedicates most of its programme to concerts and Dj's, the
rest of its activities are directly linked to musical creation either
through their implicit subject matter or because various artistic
disciplines coexist in the same support. All the activities combined in
their diversity, and especially SonarMatica, the multimedia area, are
fundamental ingredients that endow the festival with character, variety and
a differentiated personality.

After having previously presented the creative realities of Barcelona,
Berlin and London, SONARMÁTICA2002 now turns its eye to Helsinki. A guided
tour through the most breakaway and original activities that take place in
the Scandinavian capital, with a special emphasis on the area of digital
creation and new technologies. In this section, some of the highlights are
the installations of Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen as well as the works
of the Katastro.fi collective, one of the most influential and innovative
multimedia art platforms on the European scene.
