The new edition of theÂ Sonic ActsÂ festival will held in Amsterdam onÂ 23-26 February 2012. Travelling Time is the name of the theme of this year, which is completely dedicated to the human experience of time. As in the words of the curators:
Time dictates our schedule; time gives us structure.Â But in fact, there is nothing so complex and ambiguous as time: the arrival the early twentieth century of the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics has tampered with our straightforward concept of time.
These technological advances have produced a gap between ‘machine time’ and ‘human time’.Â Art, film and music all have the ability to make abstract concepts of time tangible and comprehensible; they can all manipulate time.Â In art, a relationship between time and movement creates a sense of space and can identify differences and correspondences between machine time and lived time.
Sonic Acts XIV is a four-day festival of performances, lectures, exhibitions, presentations, and film screenings.
