Air, visual concert for nomads
Aire - Concert for Nomads" is a cinematic, musical and poetic concert that travels through New York, Rome, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona and Buenos Aires, for those seeking permanently, never having the feeling of forever.
The piece is designed as a site-specific multimedia poetic concert, conceived from an original musical suite of composer and double bass player Javier Moreno, and developed as a collaboration into an allegory of images created by filmmaker Laia Cabrera and projection-designer and animator Isabelle Duverger. The video mapped projection design merges with performing arts by featuring live poetry and an international concert ensemble.
Exploring the nomadic nature of our lives in a geographical and emotional level, we invite the viewer on an adventure through the senses, where love and journey are inseparable fellows from an odyssey on the eternal coexistence with the ephemeral and the reality of dreams.
We use cinema, music and performing arts to challenge all preconceptions, including narrative structure, logical thinking, or boundaries with the audience.
-Improvisarte, a musical proposal that engages multidisciplinary art throughout a real time intermixture between a free jazz improvisation, drawing and musical composition. The pleasure to improvise by improvising. Play by playing. Draw by drawing. Compose by composing.
The project itself is searching to seed a vanishing point whose mission is to materialize the inspirational environment of a collective “performance- jam session" (Broadcast stream from the Spanish cultural center of Buenos Aires) between four musicians, and four drawing- artists, into a contemporary musical composition for Jazz quartet and twelve camera musicians, based on the audio- visual recording resultant from the performance, and the selection of four resulting drawings elected by a visual artistic commission (Drawers, painters) after the show.
The recording of the musical suite composition, will be edited by the argentinean label blue art, and a short selected part of it will be searched as a soundtrack for a video- animation; which will travel supported by AECID (Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation) materialized as a simple video- exposition- installation to all the spanish cultural centers in Latin America and all the embassy cultural offices who already supported the project.
A premier- release- performance will take place in New York after the release of the CD.
Improvisarte is a live project. An explosion of creativity transmitted by streaming to the whole World. An interactive event that from Buenos Aires looks for searching in two different moments, and with the support of all spanish cultural centers (Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation) to internationalize contemporary spanish and "Latinomerican" art, educating audiences, breaking creative and spacial borders in order to get the maximum potential from the current challenge that new ways of multimedia and communication are gifting to the art world.
