A journey through contemporary classical music, soundtracks, performances, experimentation, analog synths, hauntology and old tape recorders. An edition that focuses on listening to reverberations, whispers and soundscapes, a journey through the contemporary musical languages.


Transmissions XIII – Enter The Sound will bring back the most surprising avant-garde from the international scene to Ravenna in the frame of the ex-industrial complex of the Artificerie Almagià, in the contiguous spaces of the city dock and to MAR – Museum of Art of the city of Ravenna.
Some news are also coming, starting from a series of first-time collaborations that will give life to projects that will last even beyond the four days in Ravenna: from the first-time collaboration between Andrea Belfi and Pan American, that will work on a shared set the day before the festival, to the Belgian Echo Collective, which in addition to presenting the extraordinary “12 Conversations with Thilo Heinzmann” by Jóhann Jóhannsson will share the stage with the American pianist and composer Dustin O’Halloran and both will be in residence in Ravenna for a whole week in order to produce unreleased material, to the Special Set which on Thursday 25 November will see Marta Salogni, Valentina Magaletti, Andrea Belfi and Francesco Donadello himself on stage in an unprecedented eight-handed experiment.
