Cybersonica is a three-day festival at the ICA dedicated to defining
the frontiers of electronic sound culture.  A snapshot of the current
significant work in sonic art, Cybersonica captures the essence of
this emerging, evolving medium. Creating new forms at the interface
between us and new technology, pushing the limits of accepted
concepts of music and sound as an art form.  The festival brings
together the whole community of sonic innovation from performers,
artists, DJs and VJs to designers, academics, broadcasters and record
companies. Cybersonica consists of four elements:  Performance,
Exhibition, Installation and Symposium.

Headliners for `Performance' are three leading experimenters who step
over the cutting edge unscathed, with intelligence and humour.
Berlin's POLE (5th June) tweaks and conjures elliptical melodic
fragments and crackling dub drenched loops on the `abstract textures'
night.  Sonic terrorist BOMB 20 (6th June  `Digital Noise and Cut-
Up'), also from the Berlin underground, delivers an anti-
establishment message with cinematic vocal samples, distortion and
feedback in a hip-hop framework, exploding previous aesthetic
sensibilities. Conceptual artist, writer, academic and musician, Paul
D. Miller aka DJ SPOOKY (THAT SUBLIMINAL KID) is a major player in
New York's digital arts scene. Expect an eclectic selection of tunes
>from Senegalese hip-hop to nu-jazz poetry creating a post-modern
sound sculpture (7th June  `idiosyncratic electronica').  The theme
of each night is supported by DJs in the ICA bar.

Cybersonica is supported by CARTE, University of Westminster.
