Finisterrae for Sonar 2010

The commissioned artwork for this year’s Sonar festival is Finisterrae (end of the world), an episodic film of two ghosts journeying from limbo via the Way of Saint James to the land of the living. This journey is an apt celebration of the expansion of this year’s music and multimedia art festival, which is being held simultaneously in its traditional location of Barcelona and new location of A Coruña in Galicia – Galicia being the region pilgrims once journeyed to (via the Way of Saint James route) to visit the burial site of the apostle Saint James.

Who is actually behind the spectral road movie is unclear, but perhaps once all of the episodes have been released their creator will be revealed. To date the spirits have wandered into the desolate winter landscape, gone fishing and come across some unexpected exchanges with nature. Watch their journey so far on the Sonar site.

Sonar also features Japanese composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda and a synaesthesic audiovisual performance from Alexandre Burton and Julien Roy.
