Experimental Documentation for Installation Lucid Dream

With LUCID DREAM, trumpeter, composer and producer Nils Petter Molvær enters a new artistic field. He leaves the stage and takes his world of dense atmospheric sounds out into nature. LUCID DREAM is a one-of-a-kind new audiovisual installation whose unique character is constituted by its geographical location and the cultural-historical dimension of the forest. In Molværs vision sounds, lights and images are united to become a walk-in installation, where the atmosphere changes between the purity and truthfulness of beauty and its dangerous, destructive side.

TRAS-LADO

INTERMEDIA CONCERT / INSTALLATION

2014

The idea of traveling, as an activity that includes a geographic translation, implying a gesture as an contemplative gaze. Tras-lado is an artistic performance that plays with the construction and deconstruction of the image and sound of rural and urban landscapes determinate by the trajectory between Bogota and Manizales (Colombia) in order to constitute mediatized geographies and geophonies. The intermedia concert implies a media cartography that generates real-time visual and acoustical layers.

Tras-lado is a collaboration project between the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and Universidad Nacional de Colombia. The travel was conceived by the invitation to the International Festival del la Imagen, Manizalez 2014.
