In collaboration with the Goethe Institute of Athens
& the Nordic Culture Point
Hertz Festival emphasizes on and demonstrates prominent optico-acoustic works, by framing a potent arena of expressive activity. Moreover, Hertz disseminates and transmits innovation in sound and digital arts, by functioning as the absolute counterpoint to the embrace of new cultural and aesthetic techniques.
In 2013’s edition, taking place at Megaron, The Athens Concert Hall, on 8th + 9th February, we are widening the thematic spectrum of the festival by hosting Audio-Visual performances and installations created, constructed and presented by major figures in the fields of exploring + utilizing new media, towards aural and optical navigation + synthesis.
Hertz Festival 2013 operates as a kaleidoscope of expression, taking audiences on a unique and captivating journey – one that is exemplary, intense, multi-textural, vital, ear + eye expansive, fertile and enriching.
