The VISUAL BRASIL Festival will hold its fifteenth edition on September 29 and 30, 2017 at Punt Multimedia, a dynamic center for multimedia projects and digital technologies, located in the Casa del Mig of the Parc de la Espanya Industrial in Barcelona.
On this occasion we celebrate together with local and international artists a research meeting in the field of contemporary audiovisual: video art, mapping, audiovisual performances, installations and new media. An activity that focuses on real-time video production, free-to-do culture and new collaborative formats.
VISUAL BRAZIL _ MAIN SCENARIO
After fourteen editions presenting more than 400 international artists, the 2017 event will be held two nights of great pace in the Parque de la Espanya Industrial.
On the 29th, he will celebrate a party with the best of Brazilian popular music with the artists: Nirso, resident DJ of SONIDO TROPICO, MdC Suingue, musical researcher and creator of the Caipirinha Appreciation Society program. Representing Rio de Janeiro, Chico Abreu will be teaching his new audiovisual direct, combining his work of VJ and DJ. Residents in Barcelona we highlight Dj Malungo, Bemfis and the performances of the groups Beat Selecter and Massafera Sound System with the best of black Brazilian music.
The VISUAL BRAZIL is a festival realized by VJs and aims to create an environment of powerful visuals that take the public to an environment of sensorial and creative immersion. Projecting their dreams in the night of the 29 will be the VJs: ManuHell, the collective Tklab; from Brazil VJ Eletroiman, Gaiola Man and Mariah Lopes. Another important point of the festival is the presence of Vinicius Luz, member of the award winning collective VJZARIA.
The second night comes with a lot of sound power with the participation of artists Andy Loop, Cherman of Folcore Collective, Mexican Gypsy Box, TUNDAMA DJ’s, formed by Rodo Venegas and Lucha Ortiz. We highlight in the program two Audiovisual Lives: the Peruvian Qechuaboi with its electrifying performance and the presentation of Amambay 100 000, with artistic visuals made from traditional animation techniques.
