As they say clearly, they are a street festival, but for solidarity, for responsibility and to win the fight against the pandemic, they stay at home. But to make the quarantine easier to go through, they present a challenge.
LLUERNIA AT HOME, Fire and light festival at home, takes place tonight 28th March at 20:00, and it’s the first edition. A strange way to start, and as they expected, it’s a challenge.
The people who participated had to post a one minute video of a domestic light installation with fire or light with the hashtag #lluerniaathome and all the materials had to be found at home, they couldn’t go out to search for anything. The open call closed yesterday, 27th March and today we will be able to watch in live on the web page www.lluernia.cat
The projects selected will remain in consideration till the 7th November, where Lluernia will be exhibited in the street.
Lluernia festival of fire and light, aims to become an annual event to visualize the relationship between the city of Olot and its surroundings, with the fire of volcanoes and how this origin has transformed, not only the orography and the landscape, if not the same character and culture of the people of La Garrotxa. As references, despite accepting the differences in format, they mention the “Fête des Lumieres” that is held annually in Lyon (France), the Light Festival that for the first time this year has joined the Party of Santa Eulàlia in Barcelona and the “Mapping Festival” of Geneve (Switzerland).
Stay safe tonight, lighting up your house while watching this charming festival online!
We took a city icon, a vintage Ikarus bus, and positioned it on a prominent spot in Sofia. A 360° projection mapping installation created a unique spectacle for thousands of spectators.

Madrid, 16th April – 3rd May, 2020
Madatac is a new media art, video art and audiovisual technology focused festival based in Madrid, Spain. It’s a veteran in the industry, celebrating it’s 10th year this year. The 2020 edition MadatacX will be celebrated 16th April – 3rd May and will include AV performances from the likes of Kenta Nakagawa, Franck Vigroux & Antoine Schmitt and the great Ryoji Ikeda.
Rather than following the common one price for all festival format, events take place over a longer period of time with various viewings and performances spread in nice little doses, great for busy audiences who are only able to attend a little at a time.
With an open philosophy, framed within a universalist, pedagogical and free access commitment, which places special emphasis on the innovation, originality, risk and poetics of audiovisual projects focused on the experimental art of new media, it has the aim to serve as a real, virtual and itinerant laboratory where artists can present their latest creations.
Barcelona, March 4-7 2020

Maintaining the global commitment of the MUTEK international network to promote and create synergies with projects focused on diversity, gender equality and empowerment in the creative industry, in 2020, MUTEK.ES puts special emphasis on fostering spaces for artistic and professional formation, through different seminars and artistic residencies that will have their point of exhibition within the frame of the festival in March.
Characterized by its exceptional presentation standards and a curatorial approach that draws equally from international and national talent, always aiming to deliver revelation and discovery to our audiences, MUTEK Barcelona continues to operate in a human-scale, community-minded context.

London, 2 – 4 April 2020
RE-TEXTURED is a multi-venue, multi-sensory festival for London and the UK.
The festival explores the relationship between experimental electronic music, modernist and industrial architecture and light and visual art, and is brought to you by the team behind Krankbrother.
Krankbrother Director Danny Clancy says: “RE-TEXTURED at Tobacco Dock is our most ambitious show to date. It’s one of the few buildings in London that allows us to fulfill our ambitions across light, sound and visual art, it’s unique structures, rooms and history have inspired us to push the edge a little more.”

Bogotà, 13-23 February 2020
Bogotrax 2020 is a matrix. It is the multiple matrix of a mycelium. A constantly expanding network. Its flowers emerge whenever an encounter (between hyphae) happens.
That is the experiment: to interweave a network of partnerships where organizers and public, actors and spectators jointly participate in the production of social space.
Bogotrax Festival has been taking place in Bogotá, Colombia, for 10 years. From 2003 onward, during the month of February. Ten days of parties and workshops; talks, conferences, performances, activities in different locations, street parades, activities in different local prisons, exhibitions, graffiti, “raves”.
All this for free. Collectives and artists from different countries supported the festival with their participation.
The festival was never meant to promote brands nor it was funded by any institutions. The festival rebellious self-managing spirit led it to program the end of its first life cycle. Bogotrax restarted itself with a relevant topic: “Only in case of emergency.”
Murcia, May 28 – 30 2020
In recent years we are witnessing a true technological revolution with a global impact in all areas of society, from the various forms of entertainment to education. The technology, in constant change and transformation, marks a rapid pace that shapes our way of seeing the world, a profound reflection on new ways of apprehending reality becoming necessary.
It is undeniable: the music has a leading role in the AV world. This is not a mute revolution. This becomes obvious if we consider the importance of music on mobile devices and communication technologies.
Within this context and following the trail of success of the previous editions, Congreso Internacional Música y Cultura Audiovisual MUCA VII will be held on 21, 22 and 23 January 2020 at the University of Murcia. Same aim of the event ahead: to encourage the knowledge exchange and dissemination among sound and AV professionals and researchers. To be achieved through analysis, reflection and criticism in music and culture of recent decades.
Music and film / Music and television / Music and advertising / Music and video games / Music and Internet / Prosumers and market / Analysis of music in audiovisual culture / Music and technology / Digitalization, globalization and new ways of marketing / Teaching music in audiovisual culture.

Eufònic is a sound, visual and digital-performing arts festival held in Sant Carles de la Ràpita about an hour South of Barcelona. As an extension of this annual festival, Eufònic Urbà, provides a city-based version of the festival, which sees exhibitions and installations at the Arts Santa Mònica, right in the very heart of Barcelona. Eufònic experiences can be found in, and not limited to; museum spaces, sound actions, activities for the family audience, and concerts in unique spaces.
This year, we will have the pleasure to explore the urban festival for an entire month – leaving us with no excuse for not absorbing some audiovisual culture this winter. From February 1 to 29, 2020, we can expect to enjoy artistic presentations, audiovisual performances and experimental proposals some of which have already been presented at the summer version of the festival on the mediterranean coast, as well as some new exclusive features, as well as presentation of the creative residences.
The festival is organised in two different phases.
The most punctual of the two being 7th–8th February with more one-off performances and timed events, such as AV performances and project presentations, with artists such as NSDOS, Sam Aaron, Balfa, Clara Brea, dvdv, William Luke Valerio, Jordi Salvadó and Tim Cowlishaw & Jakub Fiala.
“where the human presence is diluted in the responsibility of being cause or effect”
The longer duration part of the festival offerings involves Tonalitats afectives (Affective Tones in Catalan), an exhibition on the 2nd floor of Arts Santa Mònica, on Las Ramblas. It can be visited for a month (until February 29) and entrance is completely free. It focuses on the visions of six artists linked to the liquid gesture, the indeterminate process and involuntary creative will as tools of work and processes of reflection. Amongst the huge variety of installations, you will be able to find everything from changes in subject matter, algorithmic creations, and neobiological worlds, creating a discourse about a variety of scientific observations, such as memory of space and context, and objectivity and physicality.
Work includes projects by artists such as Navid Navab and Michael Montanaro, Kathy Hinde, Óscar de la Fuente, Sofia Crespo, Marc Vilanova and Raquel Meyers).

Mois Multi 2020 is an archipelago of artists who express themselves madly, humanly, in a gigantic and dazzling spasm of life.
In a nutshell, the 2020 programs revolves around things that collapse. A subject of undoubted importance in the current times which affects us in the private and political life. The spark for this edition came, among other things, from the APA office, which approached us almost a year ago to talk about collapse. A joyful bonfire was born from this desire.
This is an edition generated by an unstoppable youth that also leaves space to a wise and proud guard. It’s young, casual, punk and contemporary. Festival curator, Emile Beauchemin aims to program a diversity of humans, approaches, subjects and ways to approach this world that we are constantly trying to understand and reconstruct.
Mois Multi is a project created by Recto Verso whose mission is to support and promote the research, creation and dissemination of multidisciplinary and electronic arts.
In every edition, MM programs aim to bridge the gap between artworks and public, offering an unique and accessible experience of the art and the world.

Los próximos 6 y 7 de febrero de 2020 en Medialab-Prado tendrá lugar el primer EDCD (Diseño de Visuales Creativas) del año. La jornada arrancará con un taller, guiado por Laura Garrido (aka Magmovies), que nos acercará a la parte más técnica y narrativa de la creación de visuales.
El jueves 6 de febrero a las 19h en el Auditorio de Medialab-Prado, después del taller, visionaremos el documental Visualist, presentado por los directores, Pedro Pantaleón y Manu Cid, y el productor, Oscar Testón. El documental se estrenó en el Signal Festival de Praga, después fue el turno para Valladolid en el Festival Seminci, Barcelona fue la siguiente parada dentro de la programación del Mira Festival, también se organizó una premier en Madrid en un espacio muy especial, Casabanchel-Madrid. Para 2020, los siguientes estrenos ya significarían cruzar fronteras hasta Helsinki, en el Lux festival, i Perú, en el festival Visiones. El documental sigue de gira. Anunciaremos pronto próximas localizaciones.
Visualist hace un recorrido por la obra de artistas que utilizan la luz como medio. Conoceremos la metodología y el concepto de estos artistas, que nos hablan de los orígenes del arte audiovisual, de su evolución y hacia dónde va. Todo esto en un viaje que nos llevará desde los espectáculos en vivo de Chemical Brothers o Moderat, a los video-montajes para los shows de Richie Hawtin, los videoclips de OK Go.
Cerraremos este encuentro con un concierto audiovisual en directo, en el que nos adrentraremos en el concepto del arcano II del tarot, que representa la Suma Sacerdotisa, la Papesse. José Venditti se encargará de la creación sonora y Marta Verde de las visuales.
Este #EDCD20_01 Diseño de visuales creativas, forma parte de la programación del Madrid Design Festival.

El estreno de “Visualist, Those Who See Beyond” en Casabanchel-Madrid fue un éxito en todos los sentidos. Tanto de convocatoria como de acogida. La gran ovación después de la proyección de la película demostró una vez más que el documental destaca por su calidad.
Un catering casero exquisito y unas cervezas Patanel fueron la compañía perfecta para un público que supo valorar y disfrutar de la velada. Se llevó a cabo una convocatoria de prensa y ya se empiezan a leer artículos en algunos medios online especializados y generalistas gracias al trabajo de Pat Comunicaciones.
El equipo al completo del documental salió al escenario para responder a las preguntas de los asistentes. Los directores Pedro Pantaleón (Refractivo) y Manuel Cid, el compositor de la BSO del documental (entre muchas otras tareas) Rubén Kielmannsegge, el encargado del diseño de sonido y mezcla, Sergio Testón y el productor Oscar Testón (Otucinema & Vjspain) estuvieron presentes en el ansiado estreno en Madrid, un evento lleno de felicitaciones, abrazos y momentos inolvidables.

Berlin, January 24 – February 2 2020
CTM’s 21st edition launches with an announcement of new performances, special projects, and commissioned works.
Combining unique productions, concerts, and club nights with a dense daytime programme of talks, discussions, installations, and an exhibition, CTM 2020 proposes multiple entry points into thinking about this year’s Liminal theme.
Liminal phenomena and states are transitional phases in which a familiar order sees its values and symbols destabilised; norms are suspended or turned on their heads. We find ourselves in ambiguous spaces, somewhere between a past that is no longer valid and an ever-becoming future.
TM 2020 will again play out across some of Berlin’s most standout cultural and nightlife venues. For the first time, the festival hosts special projects at Radialsystem V and an immersive listening series at Silent Green’s Betonhalle, while continuing its close relationship with HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Festsaal Kreuzberg, and SchwuZ. A limited number of Early-bird Festival Passes are available now.
As always, CTM takes place parallel to and in collaboration with transmediale festival. The jointly organised Vorspiel 2020 Open Call is out now. Vorspiel will again bring together a wide range of Berlin-based artists, initiatives, and venues, hosting a city-wide programme of cultural events.
From a festival organization to an international platform for trans-disciplinary creativity: ever since the launch of its first edition in 2005, TodaysArt has been bringing artists, thinkers, and audiences together in an ever-changing, yet inspiring setting.
Inspired by relevant political and artistic topics, TodaysArt aspires to promote and foster innovation and creativity as well as public interest for current developments within arts, culture, and society.
The network specializes in the presentation and development of emerging digital culture and contemporary visual and performing arts. By doing so, TodaysArt connects local and international talent to established creators and pioneers to collectively explore new possibilities and forms of expression.
The festival is known for its surprising settings: every year, the festival travels through the city of The Hague before temporarily finding its niche in a wide array of unconventional public spaces and venues.
Over the past thirteen years, TodaysArt has built up an impressive international profile by presenting and producing works that are developed in collaboration with some of today’s leading creators. TodaysArt’s key activity is the annual TodaysArt festival in The Hague. Besides this, the network organizes and participates in a variety of international events, exhibitions, and acts as a co-producer for the development and distribution of artists and projects in The Netherlands as well as abroad.

Very happy because always the reception of #Pontevedra is wonderful. Yesterday was inaugurated #feirafranca and we participated in it with our music and the new way of doing shows that is interactive live video and render in real time.
With camera tracking, shaders, visual adaptation by musicalization, 3 cameras and computer graphics. Quite a challenge and yesterday it worked perfectly!
All this could be done with our partner millumin. Without this program it would be impossible to realize this type of project.
A spectacle of my beloved Kull d'sac , Troula and multitude of friends reunited. Very happy.
And thanks @avsistemas

Muy felices porque siempre el recibimiento de Pontevedra es maravilloso. Ayer se inauguró la feira franca y nosotros participamos en ella con nuestra música y la nueva forma de hacer espectáculos que es video interactivo en directo y render en tiempo real.
Con seguimiento de cámara, shaders, adaptación visual por musicalización, 3 cámaras de realización e infografía. Todo un reto y que ayer funcionó perfectamente!! Todo esto se pudo realizar con nuestros partner millumin. Sin este programa sería imposible realizar este tipo de proyecto.
Un espectáculo de mis amados Kull d'sac , Troula y multitud de amigos reencontrados. Muy felices.

This year is a pivotal year for L.E.V. Festival as they take residence in Madrid for the first time. When we attended L.E.V. way back in 2014, we were astounded by the potential of this seemingly small festival in Gijón. It inspired us with its delicate combination of musical and audio-visual performance, its variation between genres and the balance between sit-down performances and exceptionally well-curated concerts. We loved the daytime with the change of venue to the botanical gardens, and ending the day in a church.
As LEV themselves state on their website, Plaid is able to fill venues as diverse as the Sydney Opera House, right through to Berghain.
On Warp Records, as they approach their 30th anniversary, Plaid are a clear reference to the industry.
“The problems and benefits of Polymers felt like good themes for this album, their repetitious strength, endurance and troubling persistence, the natural versus the synthetic, silk and silicone, the significant effect they have on our lives.” – Plaid
Dancers, inspired by the colossal quantities of plastic in our oceans, shows that Polymer is much more than just a musical performance, but an artistic reference to the world context in which their creation has been made. The official music video, whilst quite surrealist, and disturbing, is strangely beautiful. We’re really excited to see how this can translate to a live visual performance.
This seems to be the technological performance of the festival. With growing exploration into the world of virtual and digital technologies, new media art really is at the cutting edge of what’s to come and is an exhilirating way to be introduced to new world contexts.
EXALAND is an AV performance using ‘wearable controllers,’ which we imagine to be a development on what we saw with Chagall’s performance using the mi.mu gloves at Sonar Festival some years back http://www.audiovisualcity.org/avcity/2016/05/23/sonarplusd-chagall-mi-mu-gloves/
These guys have got all of the buzz words Audioreactive Video Projection and an Audioreactive Video in VR/360°, as well as 3D art and electronic music, not forgetting of course, immersive.
We’re interested to see this interactive performance for the visual aesthetic and graphics, and of course, one of the audiovisual artist’s favourite topics: audio-reactivity.
We’re always intrigued by a write-up that focuses a lot on the visual aspect of the performance, particularly as this isn’t always common practice in the industry, and the description of Mathias Gmaci, triggers a lot of intrigue.
As director of the studio, Loop, who create ‘experiences and environments that radically rethink the future’, we get the impression that this will be yet another audiovisual performance to remember.
‘Mathias Gmachl is a trans-disciplinary artist, researcher and design thinker. He is director of studio Loop.pH founded in 2003 to form an entirely new creative practice that reaches beyond specialist boundaries by facilitating collaborative spaces, mediating between digital & biological media and intervening at an urban scale to re-imagine life in the city.’ -L.E.V.
4. Nkisi: Initiation Live AV
Based in London, and coming to L.E.V with a new live AV format in collaboration with artist Charlie Hope, Nkisi promises ‘African rhythms, uncompromising European hard dance tropes, foreboding synth melodies and a relentless, galvanising energy, as harnessed for her increasingly kinetic live performances.’
If that isn’t a description to get the juices going, we don’t know what is. Unable to find any link to Charlie Hope’s previous work, we decided we’d leave this one as a surprise (although we did catch a few exciting sneaky glimpses on Instagram of a performance at Kraftwerk, Berlin…shhhh).
It’s always good to leave a performance for surprise, we think.
Volume Massimo debuted at Berlin Atonal just a few days ago and will tour all the way to the Barbican in London. Like Plaid, the visual aesthetic is photographic, and is said to take the audience on an emotional journey, using music as a map for life’s journey. It tells the story via footage from the family archives.
Synthesizers, combined with memory, this will be another piece to make us think. Oh, and did we forget to mention that he’s best known as the keyboard for Nine Inch Nails, not to mention has collaborated with the likes of Ladytron and is now member of Los Angeles alternative electronic band, SONOIO.
So, what are you waiting for? If you’re planning on attending the event, get in touch and we’ll see you there!

Norbergfestival is a 20-year running festival, held on the abandoned iron mine site of Mimerlaven in Norberg, Sweden.
A growing group of artists presents contemporary music, performances, and interdisciplinary works. We make use of what the site provides and we sleep on the ground. We extract what we produce and leave the mine as it was left in 1981.
Norbergfestival brings experimental music and performing arts to the defunct mining site of Mimerlaven, centrally located in the small post-industrial town of Norberg, Västmanland, Sweden.
Three days a year, industrial concrete buildings transform into an international playground where festival visitors experience a multicolored spectrum of electronic music, sound art, and clubs. Norbergfestival offers a unique mixture of live electronic music at the spectacular location around Mimerlaven, an abandoned mining area in the small town of Norberg.
Since it’s inauguration in 1999, the festival has evolved from a utopian counter-cultural assembly to a national front-runner and internationally recognized platform for groundbreaking and unique musical experiences. Together with light and sound installations, workshops in the fields of audio and video and a friendly and creative atmosphere matched by none, this truly makes Norbergfestival one-of-a-kind.
In 17 years Norbergfestival has grown from being a utopian project for a handful of people into one of the most important annual events in the Scandinavian electronic music scene.
BARCELONA, November 05 – 09 2019
