The 5th anniversary edition of digital culture festival Resonate begins tomorrow in Belgrade.

Held annually in the Serbian capital, Resonate brings together artists, educators and researchers in the fields of music, visual arts and digital culture, with the aim of facilitating a forward-looking debate on the role of technology in art and culture.

Resonate features both a conference programme and the Resonate LIVE music festival.

“Our concept is to combine electronic music with emerging technology,” said Resonate communications director Barbara Garčević. “The music programme and arts presentations complement the technology workshops in a unique way.”

Among the headliners of the festival is UK-based recording artist Squarepusher.

“Squarepusher is a perfect match for Resonate,” Ms Garčević stated. “He’s old-school but he’s still innovating. He has somehow managed to remain underground. He has been an innovator in electronic music and beyond for more than two decades.”

Other notable acts include Omar Souleyman, a Syrian musician and keyboardist who brings together contemporary technology and ancient traditions, and German experimental, ambient and electronic musician Hans-Joachim Roedelius.

The festival will be held at locations around Belgrade, such as the Belgrade Youth Centre (Dom Omladine), the Parabrod cultural centre and the Yugoslav Film Archive.

Resonate will take place from 12 — 16 April. More information and a full schedule can be found on the festival’s website.
