The fourth edition of the transdisciplinary Seanaps Festival has taken place from October 15-18, 2020 in Leipzig. The festival sees itself as an homage to life and its sounds, as a vibrant mixtape for curious ears, created in interaction with a global experimental music scene – an intense moment of collective listening. It is conceived as an interface between music, sound art and the living environment – presented, explored and discussed through different formats.
In four days of performances, concerts, sound installations and listening walks, the festival will bring audio art to the west of Leipzig. A program with discussion panels and presentations will reflect upon artistic research on a cultural-political level.
