15 more artists confirmed for Eufònic 2022!

This second batch of activities programmed within the 11th edition of the festival includes modular synthesizers, visual poetry, artificial intelligence, dance, some kind of digital forest, bioacoustics, a bell made with brass caps and musical proposals ranging from ambient to retro-futuristic hip hop, post-punk, electropop, traditional song, the best contemporary ambient and orchestral sonorities. An interdisciplinary and intergenerational dialogue between tradition and modernity that is also reflected in the artowork created by Xavi Pujol.

Some highlights in the musical section: the cinematic concert of synthesizers and cello of the British Ben Chatwin in the Església Nova of La Ràpita; the premiere in Spain of Penelope Trappes and her surrealist and gothic electronic spells also in the company of a cello; the fresh and timeless pop as antidote to the insecurities and the love loss of Rocío Saiz; the vaporous and spectral ambient music of the North-American Ulla Straus in the Miravet Castle; the poetic-musical show of the duo Ölivia Musyk; and the reinterpretation of the myth of Salomé through electronic orchestration and artificial intelligence by the Polish composed Scotland based Ela Orleans.

With the eclecticism of sounds and sensibilities by flag, from August 25 to 28 we will also jump from the dark post-punk melancholy of Nueve Desconocidos to the Catalan traditional melodies wrapped in contemporary electronics of Joana Dark; from the fusion of dance, light, electronic and neoclassicism of CLARAGUILAR to the deconstruction of club music via ambient and reggaeton of La Niña Jacarandá; and the fusion of poetry and music of the Valencian Versonautas to the retro-futuristic hip hop ‘fiesta’ of Andalucia’s Space Surimi, who will close the festival in the Ermita de la Pietat (a Chapel in the mountains= of Ulldecona.

We will also be able to immerse ourselves in three art installations that propose us to reflect on our relationship with nature, history, objects and physical phenomena. Korean-Japanese artist Ryoko Akama will put everyday utensils in motion through heat and magnetism at the Centre d’Art Lo Pati in Amposta; Canadian artists Olivier Henley & Laurent Lévesque will invite us to visit a forest of trees and plants from video games; and Alfred Porres will reverse the wartime use of the bell –melted to make weapons– and will present a bell made from brass shells from the cartridges used by Delta hunters.
