Fort Process Reveals Arts Festival Line-Up – The London Economic

Fort Process Reveals Arts Festival Line-Up

Fort Process is an expansive multi ­disciplinary music and arts festival that takes place in the evocative spaces of Newhaven Fort in East Sussex. After an acclaimed, sold­-out debut in 2014 the festival is back for a second edition, with an extensive programme (in excess of 100 artists) featuring site ­specific sound installations, international musicians, talks, films, poetry and workshops.

The Fort Process experience is quite unlike any other: half the festival­goers are hidden underground, making their way through a warren of tunnels to listen to performances in eerie chambers and bolt holes. Meanwhile, above ground the other half are roaming in and out of gun emplacements, radio shacks and laboratories on the fort’s ramparts.

Organisers Lost Property Arts Collectivehave aimed high with this year’s line­up ­ they have worked with the Sasakawa Foundation to bring two renowned Japanese musicians ­ Toshimaru Nakamura andSeijiro Murayama­ over to the UK especially for the festival.

Movement is explored as a significant theme of this year’s Fort Process. Emphasis has been placed on the curation of ‘sound and moving image’. The festival will be presenting Sculpture’s zoetropic turntablism, the expanded 16mm horror­ cinema of Sally Golding, and an installation by Dutch artist Mariska de Groot that explores optophonics with her analog ‘light­to­sound’ instruments.

Tickets for Fort Process are on sale now.
