Sonic Acts 2024 Biennial Programme Complete

The programme of the 30th Anniversary Edition of Sonic Acts Biennial is now complete!
With the theme ‘The Spell of the Sensuous’ , Sonic Acts takes over Amsterdam across various venues from 2 February to 24 March 2024.

The programme highlights include the spatial sound exhibition ‘The Listening Room’, which hosts new commissions and archival works by artists such as Annea Lockwood, Hildegard Westerkamp, Jana Winderen, Ji Youn Kang, KMRU, Jim O’Rourke, Beatriz Ferreyra, Iannis Xenakis, and many others. The exhibition is part of ‘Spatial Sound Platform’, which will be located at Zone2Source, and offers many concerts, conversations, and listening sessions.

‘Silence: Charlemagne Palestine’ event at Oude Kerk is another highlight to add to your calendar. Visitors are invited to witness evocative, ambient, orchestral, or experimental pieces under the ancient, vaulted ceiling of the amazing church with legendary artist. The Biennial programme also includes a collaboration between Sonic Acts and the ‘Eye on Art’ film screening series at the Eye Filmmuseum, focused on experimental work by a new generation of makers and also the rich history of avant-garde cinema.
