At the same time, ISEA2022 Barcelona collaborates in the new SonarÀgora debate area, which will host a series of masterclasses, workshops and other activities. These are aimed at professionals in the creative industries, designed to help them get to grips with the themes of Sónar+D 2022 (Web3, AI, Ecology).

These sessions include ‘Future of Music: AI-driven Virtual Artists’, presented by Sensorium Galaxy and featuring Alejandra Ghersi (Arca), ‘What you really need to know about Web3’ presented Bas Grasmayer & Kaitlyn Davies, ‘How the music industry can use data for good’ presented by DICE, and a ‘DJing in VR’ demo presented by Pioneer DJ.

In total, there are nine different activities spread across Thursday and Friday at Sónar by Day.
The new SonarÀgora debate area is presented in collaboration with ISEA2022.
