The Sonication concert series at PHI Centre is back this weekend

Streaming on Cult MTL, PHI Centre and Mural Festival platforms.

The Sonication concert series at Old Montreal art institution PHI Centre continues this coming Saturday, Aug. 22 with live sets by les Louanges and Random Recipe, and viewers are invited to stream the event live.

The sets, scheduled between 7 and 9 p.m. and taking place on two stages at PHI Centre, will be streamed live on Cult MTL, PHI Centre and Mural Festival platforms, as well as broadcast on big screens to a small audience inside on the fourth floor. For those who want to attend in person, doors open at 6:30 p.m., but please note that space is limited.

PHI describes the live Sonication experience as “a hybrid experience, halfway between a film set and a festive happening” where “aesthetes and music lovers are invited to take part in a mosaic of animations within the building.” If you’ve missed previous editions, which have been happening since late June, you can catch up via the Sonication web series. Episodes are made available for a limited time every Wednesday, and unlike some streaming events that we’ve all witnessed in recent months, these are characterized by a quality that PHI Centre is known for: high productions values.

The series will continue on Sept. 2 with Marie-Pier Arthur, Klaus and Shay Lia, and — also in collaboration with Mural Festival — on Sept. 19, with very special guests TBA. ■
