In the weeks before the annual shape-shifting electronic music festival Unsound in Poland this October, the festival will also – for the first time ever – be landing in London. Spanning four days in September with events at the BFI Southbank, the Barbican and Cafe Oto, as well as a night hosted with techno lovers BleeD, the mini-festival features a range of A/V immersion and experimental collaborations, the likes of which have always defined the forward-thinking annual event.
On 26th September, Unsound London will open at the BFI with 'Concealed', a collaborative project from Demdike Stare, cellist and composer Danny Norbury and visual artist Michael England (who is also set to debut a new piece with Andy Stott at the main leg of the festival in Krakow in October). The following night will see Brian Williams, aka Lustmord, make his first ever London appearance with an A/V set at the Barbican Centre, while Forest Swords will also make a long-anticipated, much-appreciated London headline debut on Saturday 28th September.
