> Opening Concert: Concepción Huerta and Fernando Vigueras present Permanencia
The Mensajes Sonoros sessions are integrated into Inmersiva 2 with Permanencia, the Festival’s opening concert and a new experience of sound immersion and aural experimentation created by Concepción Huerta, who has just released the album Personal Territories through Static Discos, and Fernando Vigueras. In the context of Inmersiva 2, the inaugural concert will take the space of the CCD Memorial to fill its immense outdoor space with the sounds generated by machines and tapes from Concepción Huerta and the prepared guitar from Vigueras. A special occasion, as it has been a while since the Memorial has been used as a space for live sets.
Thursday September 26th, 20:00 h.
> EVE: Dance is an unplaceable place – Dance Performance & VRC
“Eve is the encounter between the virtual and the real, to awaken the sensations of displacement.” This dance piece, integrated by four movements (3 through VR technology and 1 live), seeks to generate a trip between dimensions through each choreography and detonate answers to questions such as ‘what causes the meeting between cultures?’ ‘How does the encounter between people and machines manifest?’ Or how does nature behave along with civilization?’ EVE: Dance is an unplaceable place will be presented in multiple sessions on the weekend of the festival.
Saturday Sept. 28th and sunday Sept. 29th, 15:00 a 20:00 h.
> Closing concert: CLON & NWRMNTC (UK) present Meta
Meta is an audiovisual performance, but also a live game and soundtrack simulation experience. From a first-person perspective, Meta catches the audience and adds them to the experience of the player who commands a trip between dystopian worlds created by CLON, artist in charge of generating the 5 “worlds” of the video game that is Meta, and NWRMNTC, artist who creates the music that, in real time, accompanies the player through his decisions. Meta is a collaborative project created between Iceland and London by Estela Oliva aka CLON and Ana Quiroga aka NWRMNTC.
