Italian festival Transmissions curated by Æthenor's Daniel O'Sullivan

O'Sullivan (of Æthenor, Grumbling Fur and Ulver, among others) is curating the sixth edition of Italian festival Transmissions.

The festival line up so far includes Charlemagne Palestine, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (aka Lichens), Daniel Higgs, Laurel Halo, Stian Westerhus and Sidsel Endresen, plus Pharaoh Overlord. O'Sullivan will be perfoming as Mothlite, and with his groups Æthenor (O'Sullivan with Stephen O'Malley, Kristoffer Rygg and Steve Noble) and Grumbling Fur (a duo with Alexander Tucker).

Phil Minton's feral choir will also be holding a workshop and artwork by Ian Johnstone, Mark Titchner, Raymond Salvatore Harmon, Simon Fowler, Cathy Ward, plus the musicians performing, and others to be announced. The Wire's deputy editor Frances Morgan will be hosting Q&As at the festival, with Charlemagne Palestine and another artist to be confirmed. More details to come.

Transmissions takes place 14–17 March in Ravenna, Italy.
