Watermans: Blanca Regina + Pierre Bouvier Patron, Abstract Encounters, premiere concert
A new audiovisual performance by Blanca Regina and Pierre Bouvier Patron that explores symbolic gestures, affinity with nature and questions about presence, space and its representation in the digital age. This playful performance is created in real-time with an open score where listening and reaction conjure the art of the moment. Their work pushes the boundaries of traditional audiovisual language, combining multiple media by using analogue and digital techniques, presenting an immersive and dream-like experience for the audience with abstract imagery, films, animation, field recordings, vocal extravaganza and music created with objects.
“The world they create is playfully unreal and mysteriously enchanting”

WRO Art Center: Mikro Orchestra, PermaNoise, premiere concert
We are not musicians, but operators. Four ‘sound operators’ during the concert will play or create live, on archaic game consoles, minimalist musical forms. The event will take the form of a jam session – the musical forms will be mixed live by the main “mixer operator”. The whole will be accompanied by original visualization, generated and operated live on three consoles and three projectors by the ‘image operator’. Mikro Orchestra Project this time not only live, but also in a participatory transmission version. Apart from Mikro Orchestra’s typical solid dose of musical rave-noise-cheaptune-psychodelia and radical lo-tech visuals, the audience will be able to join in the performance thanks to a music app specially prepared by the band and available online – and on both sides of the redux wormhole.
