Dissonanze Festival

Hey, wait a minute... What about Dissonanze 2011? Will it take place or not? This is the question that's more and more insistently starting to fill the air. A wrong question, but at the same time a fair one. The right answer to the wrong question is: true, in 2011 Dissonanze will take a break as a festival. We feel we've accomplished our course goal with our ten-year edition of 2010, the one which brought on stage artists ranging from Gil Scott-Heron to Jeff Mills, from Ritchie Hawtin to Shackleton and many many more, offering a mesmerizing portrait of a sound galaxy that revolutionized the past, as it's revolutionizing our present and future. Hard to do better or more than this. To be true, any attempt would feel senseless – when you feel you've reached a peak, to insist in the same direction might be foolish. It could be more of a loss, instead of an addition. That's the first answer. The one to the wrong question. Wrong because we feel Dissonanze is not only a matter of "putting up" a festival to always capture bigger numbers and wider audience.
That's not its DNA. Its DNA always showed to be about contributing to a bigger picture, to provide for a cultural input, for a map to help you move among a sea of different contemporary realities. A mission very often accomplished by going against its own interests. Well, so... No, there will be no festival in 2011. But watch out: we will be involved in many events, some of them pretty huge. Our future is filled with ongoing newsletters, collaborations, researches and findings – and you will be able to follow our every move from our website and Facebook or Twitter profiles. If you loved our festival and, most of all, if you never thought about yourself as a mere number while you were partying with us, you won't have reasons to cry on what you will be missing this year. In fact our journey continues, as calm and confident as it's always been. And it is open to everyone who might share our vision and wish to join. Dissonanze this year will be about rethinking itself and about stressing the importance of developing ideas and new platforms for knowledge sharing, as opposed to celebrating all of it through a single, grand event.
