Sound Symposium is at it again. ONSOUND is Sound Symposium’s four-day electronic music festival taking place at venues around St. John’s (October 17-20). You know the recipe — artists from around the world join local musicians to create art unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. But the ingredients are different — laptops, electronics, improv, tech, and tape.

In addition to DJ sets and improv sessions at Peter Easton and The Ship Pub, there will be a staged concert of contemporary-electronic-meets-classical music at MUN School of Music.

Half of the ONSOUND events are completely free. Our artists will be presenting seminars in composition, improv, electronics, and soundart. You’ll also have the chance to learn Ableton Live from the master himself, Robert Lippok. Tell your friends.
