Reworks is a collection of sounds and ideas, a meeting point for loud voices, a place for dialogue and information, a window to the future. Hailing from Thessaloniki, Greece it aims to present the wide spectrum of contemporary music through the work of international and domestic artists. From experimental sound and modern classical music to contemporary dance electronic, from the performances of established artists to the first shows of new and emerging talents, Reworks is aiming to give 5 days and nights full of joy, music, opinion sharing, thinking and dance. Musical styles, live concerts, workshops, talks, free events are presented every year, transforming Thessaloniki into a meeting place for music and culture enthusiasts from all over the world to Greece.
What kind of a story do the sounds of a city tell about the city itself? To what extend the citizens of Thessaloniki have linked it with specific natural sounds? If Thessaloniki had a soundtrack how would that sound like?
Reworks Festival presents Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki an ambitious project which is supported by the Touristic Organisation of Thessaloniki. Its aim is the creation of the soundtrack for the city by musicians from all over the world based on natural sounds found on various spots around its urban landscape. Reworks announces an open call for music producers and musicians from Greece and abroad to a music dialogue.
Reworks Agora opened the first day of Reworks 2016 and Thessaloniki embraced it warmly. This year as well Reworks Agora is here to open the festival for 2017. The latest project of Reworks is a multi-dynamic and cross-thematic forum with international appeal, which aims to present to the audience of Thessaloniki, speakers, initiatives and experts in the broader fields of music, technology, creative economy and culture. Workshops, debates, presentations, film screenings and documentaries, concerts will take place this year to inspire a common future vision for music, digital culture, technology and cultural entrepreneurship while contributing to their development in Greece.
