01-16 June 2013 // Activities Music and live arts: Audiopantalla MACBA Disco Rave

audiopantalla

Audioscreen MACBA brings together three projects presenting new relations between image and sound. In the current technological and cultural context, they recover the experimental tradition around multisensory creation. On this occasion the programme transcends the two-dimensionality of the screen and reproduces the spatial and audiovisual codification of the disco, a key contemporary musical device and one of the main relational spaces of late capitalism. Guest performers this year are Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Mark Fell and Lorenzo Senni, three artists who base their work on the deconstruction and reconfiguration of the sounds of electronic dance music of the last two decades.

The continuity and interdependence of sound and visual elements and the displacement of reception from the ear to the entire body are two of the main characteristics of discos. We are dealing with a ‘post-scenographic’ sign space that activates and is activated by the actions of the body. By incorporating various disco elements, such as laser rays, colour and/or stroboscopic lights and smoke, the programme seeks to encourage the corporality of the viewers and their performative dimension, while exploring the interaction between the public and the audiovisual continuum.
