The experience of Fort Process takes festival-goers wandering through underground tunnels, caverns and old armaments rooms, coming across new immersive installations as they go, before emerging into the sunshine. Musicians perform on old gun emplacements high up on the fort’s ramparts while the audience looks out to sea, and the many rooms in the fort grounds are host to talks and workshops.
The element of discovery is key to the festival’s character, inspiring an adventure in sonic and visual information as visitors roam around the site. This concept has been fused into much of the programming this year, offering the audience artistic ways to uncover history, witness abstract ceremonies, investigate science, geography and cognitive processes.
A selection of artists from the expansive programme that we think will be of particular interest to Brighton Digital Festival-goers include Semiconductor's Parting the Waves, Kathy Hinde's Luminous, Jason Hotchkiss's Tesla Coil Organ and Chaos Matrix machine, Joe Banks' talk on Rorschach Audio, and many more - over 50 artists and groups involved!
anyone with an interest in experiencing sound art, music and film in an extraordinary setting.
