Phonica is a Dublin-based series of events rooted in Word and Sound with an emphasis on multiformity and the experimental. Conceived, directed, programmed and hosted since January 2016 by Christodoulos Makris and Olesya Zdorovetska, Phonica aims to explore compositional and performative ideas and to encourage a melting pot of audiences and artists from across artforms and borders.
