    From its roots as a small underground festival in cellar clubs in Krakow, Poland, Unsound is an amorphous music festival that has become one of the world’s foremost events in electronic and experimental music. After a successful inaugural edition last year, Unsound is returning to Toronto this weekend as part of Luminato Festival’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

     

    This year's lineup include 23 international artists performing during the two nights at the Hearn Generating Station. Three artists from Poland will perform on Saturday, June 11.

    T'ien Lai is a quartet playing and improvising a music spread between quasi-shamanic trans, raw almost industrial rhythmic electronic music, and pastiches of modern techno with no computers.

     

    Olivia has become over the last 12 years a key player in Poland's DJ scene, delivering her original sets made of raw and dark edges of techno, the liquid feel of acid, the deep reaches of cosmic, the simplicity of electro and the warmth of house.

     

    Wacław Zimpel is the most imaginative clarinet player in Poland. The numerous, varied projects he has lead often appeal to the musical traditions of India, Japan, or Morocco.

    The Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Toronto and the Polish Cultural Institute in New York CIty are Arts Partners of Unsound Toronto at Luminato Festival.
