Next edition expected September.
Light Move Festival is now in its 10th year in Łódź, Poland. It started back in 2010 with the idea of changing the way the city of Łódź is viewed, but painting its buildings with colourful light. Now it is a well-developed festival of light putting Poland on the map, which includes installations, projections, spatial light shows, 2D/3D mapping, and conferences.
Light.Move.Festival. combines sound, color, light and movement. In 9th edition in 2019 it developed into an international, anticipated event with a recognizable brand promoting Łódź as an innovative, multicultural, friendly and open city. Its ever-growing popularity contributes to the formation of a positive image of the city and gives reason to visit Łódź in late autumn, outside the tourist season. In 2019 alone, the festival gathered 850,000 guests, and all its previous editions – over 4 million!
On Instagram, #lightmovefestival, has an impressive rate of publication, where you can really see the success of the festival and its colourful installations and 3D mapping of buildings.

This week, we caught up with Huma about his most recent project ‘Eva,’ to find out a little more about how his musical project developed into a live AV show. Huma is Andrés Satué’s personal project, an evolution from his early musical days in a rock band to his more recent progression into the world of electronic music. He’ll be performing ‘Eva’ at Mira Festival, Fabra i Coats, Barcelona, Thursday 7th November
Tell us a bit about the visual side of your show. What can the audience expect in terms of live A/V performance?
The idea is to treat light from a 3D environment by making the light beams coincide, forming geometric figures in motion in the air.
Have your created the visual part of the show yourself or collaborated with a visual artist? (If so, who and why?) If not, tell us about how you developed the project and any challenges you faced in dealing with both elements of the performance.
I’m working with Jose Vaaliña from Eyesberg studio. It was a very natural collaboration, we met after finishing two gigs I did in Barcelona and we talked about the possibility of working together as we have very similar ideas about the relation between music and visuals, now it’s happening and I can say we are both really happy with the results.
What tools and set up are you using for the show?
We are using 5 powerful projectors, various smoke machines (fog and hazer) and also some visuals. The beams of light will react to sound to create a symbiosis between both. Also we will use some lights and strobes for punctual moments.
How do you feel about the importance of the visual experience in your projects past and present?
It is something I have always thought about as a very important element. Even when I played in rock bands lots of years ago we always carried a few lights to add impact to the final part of the show.
Since I’m working as Huma, I collaborated with Drömnu using visuals at the very beginning, then moved to colorful L.E.D.s, smoke and strobes working with Juan Pablo Larrazabal and now I wanted to try new things and Jose appeared. I like the idea of doing something immersive, not something that you have to look at the detail or that can distract the public but something that will enhance the music.
You’ve been making music for more than 10 years now. What is the project that you are most proud of, or have the most attachment to so far?
Well, I’m always more attached to the last thing I’ve ever done. Even though I really think that ‘Eva’ and this show is the project in which I have worked the most on and the project I’m the proudest of to date.
Got any questions for Andrés, Eyesberg, or just want to share anything with us? Jot down your thoughts below
