Icelandic Artists to Perform ‘Solaris’ at Lincoln Center

Unsound Festival New York joins forces with the Sacrum Profanum for a stunning opening night Wednesday, April 6th 2011, at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, New York

Unsound Festival returns to New York for a second year with its biggest concert to date ‐ a stunning opening night at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall presenting the North American debut of an Unsound commissioned piece “We Don’t Need Other Worlds – We need Mirrors” – “Music for SOLARIS” featuring Ben Frost (Iceland), Daniel Bjarnason (Iceland) and Sinfonietta Cracovia with film manipulations from Brian Eno/Nick Robertson alongside the music of Steve Reich and Krzysztof Penderecki performed by Sinfonietta Cracovi.

This special event is presented with the acclaimed SACRUM PROFANUM, Unsound Festival’s sister festival in Krakow, which regularly blurs the line between contemporary classical music and ambitious pop. The Krakow Festival Office is the co‐organizer of the event while the Adam Mickiewicz Institute acts as an additional partner for this special large‐scale opening night. Unsound Festival New York is presented by Fundacja Tone, the Polish Cultural Institute in New York and the Goethe‐Institut New York.
