Unsound focuses on a broad swath of contemporary music — emerging, experimental, and leftfield — whose sweep doesn’t follow typical genre constraints. It has developed a reputation for identifying innovative scenes and radical sounds. An amorphous festival of music and related visual arts based in Krakow, New York, Toronto, Adelaide and sometimes other places. This year’s edition will take place between 13th and 17th of October in Krakow, focusing on the theme dəəp authentic. Unsound 2021 will investigate tensions between the synthetic and organic, the fake and the real, body and machine & online and offline, as well as uniqueness, replication, appropriation and commerce, all of which question yearnings for authentic experiences or an authentic self.
