Sorry if this is a little off topic...
Does anyone in the UK know of or attend any Sonic Art and/or Electronic music festivals?
I've heard of a few myself but am looking to experience more.
I know it's slightly off topic, however for me personally I always find sonic art and electronic music (leaning more towards IDM, Glitch etc.) greatly influences and inspires my sound design - This is particularly the case with my latest project utilising a merger of the two and sound design, which compliment the piece well.
I thought it would be of interest to a number of people so I'll update this post as I find more festivals/performances etc. It would be cool to hear about live laptop ensembles as well. Also, I don't know if people would prefer for it to be a community wiki page? Just let me know and I'll change it :)
I've asked a related question before if you're interested: http://socialsounddesign.com/questions/9328/music-makers-do-you-find-your-sound-design-skills-influence-your-compositions
