THE FESTIVAL

15 YEARS OF VISIONES SONORAS

The celebration of 15 years of the International Festival of Music and New Technologies, Visiones Sonoras, has been visualized by Silvia de la Cueva, the first woman to head the festival in its entire history. It will be a retrospective that will allow to re-discover the most transcendent moments in the history of the festival, which, simultaneously, became milestones in the history of electroacoustic music in Mexico and Latin America. It will be a festival in which all the artists and scholars who once participated with incipient, novel or experimental projects and who have won a very important place in the genre, as well as artists programmed for the first time in both Visions, will play an important role. Sound as in Mexico.

To honor the anniversary, the Festival’s program includes 15 concerts under the motto “15 years, 15 concerts”, divided into Pre-Visions – from May to August – concerts during the festival from September 25 to 28, and Post-Visions – From October to december-. The decision to extend the activities of the festival is due to the fact that 4 days of the main event are clearly insufficient to include everything in what Visiones Sonoras has impacted over 15 years: artists, works, knowledge, collaborations, etc.

For some years it has been developed, at no cost to the attendees, at the facilities of the Morelia campus of the UNAM Morelia campus, to where the invited from different parts of the world arrive. The inaugural concert, mainly, is one of the most important events of the Mexican artistic agenda in regards to music with new technologies.
