The kinetic energy (also called in the old writings live viva, or sharp force) is the energy which a body because of its movement has. The kinetic energy of a body is equal to work necessary to make pass says it body of the rest to its current rotation and translatory movement.

According to this idea, the Kinetik festival want to be a response to this reality, that any body has an internal energy when put moving by releases, in this case, the interaction between energy (sound, light, images) and a body (assistance) placed in an environment or all these directions is put in request.

Following the evolution of electronic music, including its obscure branches, and to its more known branches, this inner force, reflected in electronic music will be reflected during four nights, from Electro, to Old School Industrial, to Harsh Industrial, to Rythmic Noise and finally to EBM (Electronic Body Music), to lead to the maximum of senses towards new horizons.
