Since 2015, Austin-based Sonic Transmissions has presented burgeoning, established, and legendary artists of the musical avant-garde working in diverse fields of improvisational music. Spearheaded by bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (The Thing, Atomic, The Young Mothers), the curation is informed by Flaten’s experience as an internationally touring musician. The festival showcases musicians from diverse backgrounds within Experimental Jazz, Free Improvisation, Hip Hop, Punk Rock and sounds from around the world. Sonic Transmissions has taken the shape of a 3-day festival (2015-2017) and, most recently, as a concert series occurring over several months (2018-2019) and has featured over 100 musicians from throughout the U.S. and the world.

Since 2020, due to the pandemic, Ingebrigt moved back to his native country of Norway and with Trondheim and Oslo as his base he established Sonic Transmissions Records and Sonic Transmissions North.
