A special collaboration between WSK: Festival of the Recently Possible and Sónar Hong Kong, the Soundtable Workshop takes you on a quickfire journey through 100 years of music theory before giving you the chance to assemble your own special-edition WSK 8-bit mixtape pocket synthesizer – then put it into action in a noise orchestra group performance.
WSK—a modern disemvoweled form of “wasak”, which means “shattered” or “destroyed” in Filipino—is the first and only annual international art festival dedicated to contemporary electronic, digital, and experimental art in Asia. Launched in 2008 as Fete dela WSK and rebranded as WSK in 2013, the festival explores the diverse range of cross-disciplinary artistic activities in the context of digital culture and performance, with focus in collaborative projects between the Philippines, South East Asia, and beyond. It aims to blur, deconstruct, and reimagine the preconceived notions of how art, culture, and technology diverge, merge, and work together. It is organized by SABAW Media Art Kitchen – a not-for-profit artist-run initiative whose primary interests lie in curatorial and research-based production towards the imminent intersections of art and technology. The festival primarily runs on a Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together ethic and is mostly self-funded, with partial funding support from cultural organizations.
