Unsound Krakow was established in 2003 in Krakow, Poland, as a festival of advanced music. Starting out as an underground event, in recent years the festival has grown in size and name. Fundacja Tone currently produces the annual festival in Krakow in October each year, and in spring 2012 will produce the third Unsound Festival New York with local producers, curators, venues and cultural institutes in that city.
Also with local partners, Unsound/Fundacja Tone has created smaller events in Prague, Warsaw, Bratslava, Kiev, and Minsk, the capital of Belarus. Unsound is interested in the idea of cross border collaboration, and thinking of the festival as a tool for commmissioning and fostering new work. As well as this, Unsound is focused on promoting music from Poland and generally the region east of Berlin.
"It was a brilliant festival that raised interesting questions..." The Guardian
