The Rest is Noise and Subbacultcha present: Astrid Sonne & aircode

24 August - s105, Amsterdam
20.00 - €15


Together with The Rest is Noise we invite Astrid Sonne to the s105. The composer, producer and viola player bathes baroque techniques, improvised passages and “precisely cut” compositions in electronic experiments. “Keys and strings, software and hardware, drones and choral harmonies are deployed with fluency and mystery, both hinting at and hiding elusive narratives within their waveforms” (Boomkat).

Sonne’s latest project is titled “Ephemeral Camera Feed” – a live recording, captured through camera mics to document the spatiotemporal element of the music. You witness Sonne’s performance from different vantage points. As if shrunken to the size of a fly, soaring through memory. You hover over chatting audience members, picking up coughs, stumbles and other bits of ambience. “In doing so, Sonne highlights how venues act as vessels for moving air. The space becomes a container for not only its inhabitants but also the waveforms she produces. (Pitchfork).

Astrid Sonne will be joined by aircode, a Swedish producer based in London whose production features dubby rhythms, careful use of space, ever-changing dynamics and stirring percussions
layered with vocals and piano. Their debut album Grounded came out on Alien Jams late this January.

Tickets are €15 and entry is free for Subbacultcha members. Subbacultcha Members can reserve a free spot by sending an email to with ‘Astrid Sonne’ in the subject line + your name in the email. Tickets can be purchased here. We update the RSVP list every Wednesday.
