Our festival has been running since 2006 with an extraordinary number of artists from the world. It has been supported since then by ARCI Ancona and the municipality of Ancona.
The festival has been shifting its focus during the years: from IDM music, most notably Warp Records and Berlin-based avantgarde artists, to contemporary avantgarde, from classical electroacoustic music to scientific dissemination.
During the covid-era the festival didn't stop.
