Four events with some of the most famous Italian and Spanish artists who meet for the first time thanks to new digital technologies to give life to new artistic experiences through the common language of music.
The great protagonist of the cycle was the magnificent Salón de Actos of the Italian Cultural Institute of Madrid, where the Spanish artists performed. Created in collaboration with ESOUND Music & Arts, the innovative Music | aɔisùM format fits into the #iicenlinea programme, which collects cultural activities specially produced by the Institute for online fruition.
The emotion of the artists in the videos is very strong and I am sure that this energy is able to cross the screen and ‘rub off on’ the audience. To this we have added an excellent montage of images, with shots that bring the viewer closer to the place where the artists are, even closer than what would have been possible live. – Marialuisa Pappalardo, director of the Italian Cultural Institute of Madrid
The project focuses on the possibilities of streaming: seeing the artist up close, being visually guided by the camera, observing other details that could be missed in live performances without forgetting that the emotion of an artist in front of the audience is irreplaceable.
For the Musica | aɔisùM cycle, succesful Italian and Spanish artists – mainly musicians – have been chosen to experience the formula of the distance encounter in different musical genres: author’s music, jazz, classical and electronic music.
The cycle opens on 15 April with the extraordinary duo Musica Nuda (Petra Magoni and Ferruccio Spinetti) and Chano Domínguez, which pays homage to the songwriting.
On 30 April the jam session of Gianluca Petrella and Marco Mezquida will celebrate the International Jazz Day.
On 12 May, Baroque music will be the protagonist of the appointment with Marta Rossi and La Ritirata.
Grand finale on 26 May with the fusion of Khalab’s electronic music and Rocío Molina’s flamenco choreography.
The shows last about 45 minutes and will be available on the YouTube and Vimeo channels of the Italian Cultural Institute of Madrid.
