Bucharest InnerSound Festival set to offer fresh sounds and visual oasis

Newsroom 30/08/2012 | 08:24

Between August 28-30, the National Peasant Museum opens its gates for the first edition of the International New Arts Festival, entitled InnerSound.  The festival’s format was created by young artists in Romania. The organizers, which include OPUS Association, The National Peasant Museum, The Peasant’s Club, The National University of Music in Bucharest – The Center of Electroacoustic and Multimedia Music, plan to offer their Bucharest audience a fresh sonic and visual oasis at the end of an extremely hot August.

The symbol of InnerSound 2012 is the window opened towards ourselves, towards our own dreams and creative ideas – a window that, hopefully, will allow the audience to look into a world of mystery, of aural and visual magic. The symbol was extracted from a photo by Sabina Ulubeanu.

InnerSound plans to offer a new perspective on the art of music by including it in different visual projects such as photography exhibitions, silent short movies with live music or multimedia shows. Participants at InnerSound are musicians, photographers, visual and film artists from Romania, Holland, Ireland, Greece and Switzerland.

The program of the event is listed below. Tickets can be found at http://www.bilete.ro/ or in Post Offices with a Bilete.ro sign, as well as Unirii 1 metro station. Tickets for one day cost RON 10, while subscriptions cost RON 15. Details about the festival can be found at http://www.facebook.com/InnerSoundFestival.
