Borderline Festival 2018 / ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE

Borderline Festival 2018

19-22 APR 2018
Inside & Outside the OCC
For the eighth year in a row, get ready for sound to be pushed to and beyond its limits at the OCC and around the city. The Athenian festival that's not afraid to experiment is now very much at home at the OCC.
Does it make sense to talk about borders in music? How can you fence in sound, a physical phenomenon that travels through solids, liquids and gases alike? Can we get to grips with something that's in a state of constant flux, with what dominates the here and now?
Starting out with these questions, Borderline invites us to surrender to the infinitude of sound and experience live music free of barriers and compartmentalization. Song and noise, composition and improvisation, live dj sets and sound installations, talks and other activities at the 8th iteration of the Athenian festival that continues to support experimentation, new collaborations and sonic quests of every sort. At the OCC and beyond.
