Sonica is a festival of (electronic) music as well as sound and experimental art. In a way, it is conceived as a showcase of the annual programme produced by the hyperactive MoTA Museum of Transitory Art. Its experimental nature questions exhibition and staging formats, crossing borders between art and theory, object and performance.

In the past, Sonica has presented artists like Tim Hecker, Rashad Becker, Emptyset, Marina Rosenfeld, Herman Kolgen, Ryoichi Kurokawa and Random Logic.

Festival format, venues and residents

Sonica is an attempt to transform a classical exhibition space into a field of events, performances, workshops, and lectures. It is a temporary laboratory established on the crossing of visual art, media and sound art and research, consisting of production and research residencies, exhibitions, performances, and public interventions, with a special focus on public presentations and talks.

The festival traditionally utilises different Ljubljana venues like for example Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture, the Museum of Modern Art, Cankarjev dom, Cultural and Congress Centre, the MoTA Point/LAB, the Slovenian Cinematheque, Tovarna Rog, and Klub K4.
