PART II : VISUAL DIALOGS & MUSIC (2 Chronicles together here >>)
Just after 7 pm, the performances of several artists started: The first block of performances, avant-garde, was in charge of Keren Shalev and Rallito X, a couple of artists that came from Berlin to act in the ART SHIFTING DAY. To this performance joined and interacted, Marco Domenichetti , with his synthesized music, and Enric López with the sounds of his hang-drum building bridges of dialogue between Keren and RallitoX.
The DIALOGS between 4 artists were adding each other. Man-Woman dialogue, abstract painting on the wall. Marco Domenichetti and Enric Lopez intervening, adding their voices through a synthesized music or a very ancient percussion sound played with the hands. Their music was leading the dialogue between Keren and RallitoX ‘s performance: Woman and Man, Black and White communication, Marco and Enric accompanied them with their sounds. All 4 were listening, speaking; four-party dialogue! Images and music were filling the space as if it were a “gave birth”. Keren and RallitoX were painting / talking on a wall (imaginary?), Their hands were brushes, strokes their words. On the other side of the cloister, Marco and Enric. Marco with his Mac as a tool to communicate, projecting on the screen lights and lines. Enric with his “hang” filled the space with timeless sound. They both were creating a light and sound performance.
Music, hurtful at times, in highest moments of creativity, emphasizing the process of Creation. Creativity, if it is, has no age or sex : gets out of belly and explodes! Ramon Millà, producer of TV3
(MèdiaQuiosc, Arts Santa Mònica
) entered into dialogue with his camera, talking to Keren and RallitoX, adding himself to the strength of the creative process. Marco Domenichetti did mix with his music, he was not a DJ, he had no disc players or instruments; he only had his music and technology to interact. Enric Lopez added notes of balance with metallic , harmonic and melodic hang sounds. 3 Dialogues in perfect balance, man-woman, man-music, man-camera, … technology, music and art, talked to build.
The ART SHIFTING DAY clousure was the performance of Dani Rifà
a taste of his popular songs, and as he said: Tremendamente solo, ¿Y qué?
(Tremendously alone, so what?) A revitalizing performance of traditional Catalan music (rumba, habanera and more): guitar, voice, and his laptop: Three in 1! An explosion of joy and live music to draw all of us a broad smile, a laugh and desire to dance!
He talked directly with his “sung words” to the audience empathizing and spreading his joy, involving the public to participate, mixing seriousness, irony and jokes, Catalan and Spanish and personal marketing “raw” face-to-face: Dani! Nobody would dare to say that he was acting alone, he wasn’t, we were all together, forming the perfect balance of what it’s to me Creativity, Communication and Collaboration, people dialogues interwoven between respecting tradition and loving rabidly technology!
Speaking of Collaboration: If all the dialogues were so well done, artistic and technologically speaking, was thanks to a great crew, people, that were working full-time on 4 and 5 November at the Arts Santa Mònica for Art Shifting Day:
(interactive lights, music, video projections). Made light sensitivity. Balance-light interaction with an awesome ability to work !
