Faster Than sound is a sound experiment joining the dots between musical genres and digital art forms. Following its first step in June 2006, FTS returns to the cold war environment of Bentwaters airbase for more explorations with sound.. Artists from various backgrounds will collaborate and explore the worlds of electronic music genres, contemporary classical practice and interactive visual arts. A range of immersive installations, musical collaborations, a wireless walk in the woods, illuminated cold war buildings and a large dome filled with inspiring sounds will make this a day you wont forget for a long time. Allow yourself to be taken somewhere you’ve never been before to experience the unexpected.
