The Concept: Love Your Latency

“Love Your Latency” explores the intersection of technology and art, turning the often-perceived drawback of digital delay into a source of creative inspiration. This concept not only redefines the performance space but also encourages audiences to engage with the music in a new way, considering how temporal and spatial differences influence their experience.

Supported by Cultiva and CreaTeME, this event exemplifies the innovative spirit of PUNKT Festival, continuing its tradition of pushing the boundaries of musical expression.
