Audio and video satisfy merely two out of five human senses, yet sight and hearing remain vitally important parts of human perception. In order to satisfy these (epicurean) senses of modern cinematographic practices in the festival’s platform, we continue the tradition of audiovisual, new media projects presentation since 2008.
Live cinema (in the past, live cinema meant “live” musical accompaniment to silent films) marks an event, where modern audiovisual practices are performed live in cinematographic area. With the black box placement and thorough, immersed projections on the vast exhibition area of KIBLA portal, we once again explore the broad area of visual science, where various technological, social, cultural and artistic interpretations are combined into a single experimental event. With their aesthetics and informativeness, such events exceed the widespread perception of audiovisual as something merely entertaining, illustrative and, especially, as a ready-made, pulp consuming of images, sounds and contents. These events are particularly designed by an expansive force of sound and image mediums, “exploding” outside of their well-established frames by using original technologies (analogue, digital, liquid, air and light), while expanding the familiar boundaries and conventions of cinematographic experiences by introducing novel authors poetics.
We are establishing a program which opens up the unprecedented possibilities of cinema’s re-definition and image and sound experimentation; thus offering us a new extensive insight and understanding of modern cinematography.
