In the social discourse, sound is the voice of political issues of sexism, colonialism, dominant culture and so on. Cedrik Fermont is presenting his intense and dedicated research about the women’s role in the interplay between the state of conflict and cultural survival of the feminine as crucial impact in the contemporary geo-dislocation of our internet-based world. Presenting documentation of very diverse areas decentralized from the western world, new wide trajectories for a dialogue of contemporary aesthetics into sound emerge.

Sonic Vibrations is a series of hybrid events presenting scientific and technological research applied to sound-art, new musical instruments and installation art in form of exhibitions, conferences and live acts. Principles of Physics, Mathematics, Biology, Psychoacoustic, Body Anatomy and so on are used by artists creating media works which are pushing the definition of cross-disciplinary boundaries between technology and science applied to vibrational art. Curated by Alfredo Ciannameo
