> Pedro Maia: Negative Space, work in progress 

The iconic Berlin Atonal festival presents Negative Space by Pedro Maia as a preview of his new performance in an installation format. In this piece, presented as a work in progress, Pedro projects 16mm films on three synchronized cubic objects filled with smoke, in a search “to deconstruct the negative space and give the viewer complete freedom to gaze into the film manipulations. The viewer is submerged into the image, becoming the subject of that image and of the composition”. To transform Negative Space into an installation, Pedro Maia collaborated with designer Marcel Weber aka MFO, who has also collaborated with Aïsha Devi in the scenographic design of some of her live A/V performances. This November, Pedro Maia will complement Vessel’s performance with live cinema.

> Circle Of Life debuts a new series: In Concert 

Performance upon performance, Circle Of Live has become one of the most exciting and atypical projects that had ever emerged from the clubbing experience, thus amplifying the creative drive of live jams through constant change. The platform flows through specially located locations, crossovers with contemporary dance and, now, a series that gathers musicians coming from the classical music scene, bringing a whole new sound palette. In Concert will debut in Malmo, Sweden, with a live jam from the producers Sebastian Mullaert and Laurence Guy in collaboration with the cellist Gerda Holmquist, Elina Nygren playing the viola and three instrumentalists from the Subchamber Ensmble, under the creative direction of the composer Nathan Larson. “As usual we have no clue where the flow of improvisation will take us and there is only one way to find out.” Circle Of Live will soon announce new dates for In Concert, in the meantime guarantee your access and enjoy the six-hour improvised set that will perform at MUTEK MX Edition 16.
