Sónar 2012


Sónar 14.15.16 June
Barcelona's 19th International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art


Sónar is a three-day long music and visual arts festival that takes place in Barcelona, Spain every year. It is described officially as a festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art. Music is by far the main aspect of the festival. The festival runs for three days and nights, starting this Thursday with an expected 80,000 visitors.

Three days and three nights in touch with the most up-to-date developments. Featuring the most relevant national and international artists and professionals from the sectors of music and modern arts.


Native Instruments Presents:

Mostly Robot

Mostly Robot is set to deliver one of the most unique events of the Sónar by Day program (Thursday 14th, SónarHall, 19:00). Five well-known musicians will join forces alongside innovative visual artists for a world premiere performance.

Conceived by Native Instruments, Mostly Robot will utilize an advanced array on NI hardware and software, pioneering a creative interplay between technology and cutting-edge artists from diverse musical backgrounds.

Placing themselves in the tradition of inspiring Jazz concerts, Mostly Robot draw their magic from bringing highly skilled individuals together, creating a unique momentum. What’s more, the Sónar showcase is a rare moment to catch a glimpse of yet unreleased song material from individual band members.

Truly ‘live’, each musician will play independently of another - instruments are synced only by the human element, with no MIDI clock or prepared grid obstructing their creativity - and will be accompanied by an inventive visual concept from Berlin’s extraordinary Pfadfinderei.

Using the note events, controller data and audio material created by the playing of the Native Instruments controllers, visual elements are developed and interpreted in real time on screen - allowing the audience to follow the virtuosity of each musician.

The Artists:


  Jamie Lidell / Frontman & Singer

  DJ Shiftee / Cuts & Turntablism

  Tim Exile / Effects & Sound Mangling

  Mr Jimmy / Harmonies & Keys

  Jeremy Ellis / Finger-drumming & Percussion

  Pfadfinderei / Visuals
