For its 12th edition, the Licences festival decides to open itself exclusively to the music of one selected country. The 2015 edition of the festival will be therefore dedicated to the music from Poland. The idea of the festival is to discover the Polish electronic music repertoire which is little known in France, and to represent the phenomenon of Polish electronic music as a whole, reaching from the Polish Radio Experimental Studio repertoire to the most interesting today's musical acts from Poland. The festival, organised with SONORA music agency, will take place in Paris' legendary venue Les Voûtes, from the 6th to the 8th of November. The first evening of the Festival will host four exceptional concerts: the first one, entitled Solitude of Sounds will be an hour-long journey through the music from the Polish Radio Experimental Studio, curated by Michał Mendyk. Two following concerts, by Maja S.K. Ratkje and sultan hagavik, are part of the EASTERN WAVES project, organised by Foundation 4.99. During the second evening, along with the second concert of electronic pieces and a presentation of experimental films from Poland will have the French première of the XynThi project by Rafał Zapała. The third Festival day will see the world première of the new audio-visual work by Łukasz Szałankiewicz (Zenial) entitled Minotaur / Chimera, as well as the third acousmatic concert, and the performance by Mirt who is the third act of the EASTERN WAVES project.

The 12th edition of Festival Licences was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Polish Institute in Paris. The EASTERN WAVES project was sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland and from the Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway Structural Funds.
