Live Stage: The Bridge Festival [bg Ruse + Giurgiu]

bridge.jpgTHE TRANSBORDER BRIDGE FESTIVAL is a 2 days festival which takes place in Ruse (Bulgaria) and Giurgiu (Romania), on the 18th and 19th of July. The festival is part of European Sound Delta, a pan European project focused on sound-art, field recording and live performances.

Just a few hundreds miles away from the Danube delta two major cities Giurgiu (Ghiurghiu)-RO and Ruse (Ruse) – BG are facing each other. They face each other stonily even though they are linked by one of the rare bridges on the eastern part of the Danube. The Festival has been designed as a dialogue between both cities since it will associate Rumanian and Bulgarian artists but also students taking part in a workshop entitled sonic landmarks of the territory in collaboration with EU Space 21 (Ruse-BG), Banlieues d’Europ’Est (Bucarest) and the Elias Canetti House (Ruse-BG). A networked sound installation will be equipped with listening booths and microphones located on either riversides (LE POULPE installation by APO33) – it will be linked to another installation in MONS. The musical selection for the festival will be finalised by Rokolectiv, who organise the Festival of the same name at the Bucarest MNAC. Arena –Ruse’s radio– and MU studio-boat will broadcast the completed creative radio works and will transmit both events via FM waves and the Internet.

The night concerts will take place in the Roman fortress Sexaginta Prista, on the border of the Danube, and the entrance ticket costs a symbolic 1 euro per day. Apart from the live concerts, The Bridge also presents Le Placard headphone festival, audio installations at the Elias Canetti House in Ruse, as well as audio-walks in various venues in Giurgiu and Ruse.

The Bridge Festival is organised by Rokolectiv (Ro), MU (Paris) and Arena Media (BG)

Participants include: Prins Thomas (NO), Mira Calix (UK), Phill Niblock (US), Joachim Montessuis (FR), Katherine Liberovskaya (CA), Chica and The Folder (DE), Minus & Ion, Sillyconductor (RO), Tom Wilson (RO), Alien Pimp (RO), SKVJS (RO), Vali Chincisan (RO), SKVJS (RO), Henning Lundkvist (SWE), Pistamashina (BG), Cosmiq Microbiq (RO), Camil (RO), Julien Ottavi (FR), TÔ (FR), WPMG (FR)
