Sound Week wants to give the ears the same attention that the big screen attracts. By addressing sound together with BIEFF, we mean its use in experiments with film, and what better way to start than with Dada, and end with the noise music scene in China!
But Sound Week is also a sound installation with field recordings from Bucharest, a conference with renowned ethnomusicologist Speranța Rădulescu about her life work, a performance with Charlemagne Palestine, a concert with composer and improviser Maja Osojnik & local PFA Orchestra – improvisers in training – and acousmatic music with Stephan Dunkelman, the premiere of a 5.1 surround radio fiction by Ilinca Stihi, a conference about noise and health with Dr. Cristian Mocanu, workshops and presentations...
Because sound can be cinematic, musical, experimental, dangerous, misrepresented and misunderstood, but also a political issue and an identity. We invite you to discover a full program online at www.saptamanasunetului.ro.

Selection from An Artist’s Life, part of the series DADAWORKS – short clips put together by Sándor Vály between 2005-2013, in which the artist explores time, loneliness, vanity and the luxury of facing death as that which poisons the creative process, often forcing madness in the picture.
Die Toteninsel by Sándor Vály is a Dada “reconstruction” the artist filmed in 2015 using a 1919 Karl Georg Zwerenz (1874-1933) script, which he discovered by chance. It recounts the story of the painting with the same name by Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901). Music by Éva Polgár and Sándor Vály.

Ecce Homo, a Portrait of Célestin Deliège
Fuck You: Fucking Noise in China Now
This combo from Belgian label Sub Rosa starts thus with the theories of the last great modernist musicologist, Célestin Deliège, and reaches very far, where the entire avant-guarde esthetics stands on its head, the noise music scene in China. "Because a good documentary starts from an intensification of what i mean is...".
