𝗙𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹 𝗦𝗢𝗠 𝗥𝗜𝗦𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗢 – Cineteatro Louletano and C.M. Loulé
Media partners: Antena 3, RUA FM and Sulinformacao
It is already this month, on November 24th, that one of the most original and alternative festivals in terms of music, sound and image returns in the south of the country: 𝗙𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹 𝗦𝗢𝗠 𝗥𝗜𝗦𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗢.
The Festival will take place in three different spaces, at the Cineteatro Louletano, at the Convento de Santo António and at the Auditorium at Solar da Música Nova, between November 24th and 28th, highlighting, as usual, innovative projects with experimental dialogues between music and image and in new explorations at the level of sound art.
The 𝗦𝗢𝗠 𝗥𝗜𝗦𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗢 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭 starts on the 24th, at 6 pm, with the inauguration in Loulé of the sound installation “𝗠𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗖𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗶𝗿𝗮”, at the Convento de Santo António, in Loulé. It is a Sound Machine that brings us a sensory experience, where hearing is the meaning that is exclusively explored, in an attempt to counteract the omnipresent domain of vision in the field of music. The installation, created by Flávio Martins and produced by Associação Folha de Medronho, features content by Heitor Alves, George Silver, Miguel Neto and João Silva.
“𝗠𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗖𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗶𝗿𝗮” gives primacy to music, but also to noise and silence, so that we can go back to being audio lovers instead of mere music consumers. The installation plays sounds ranging from the immersive to the cacophony of a psychedelic fairground carousel. Technically it’s a sound system with 12 speakers at the same time, in the dark. One person at a time.
Also on the 24th, at 7 pm, also at the Convento de Santo António, the 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗼 will play, a duo that is a trio, with Miguel Rocha on cello, Adriano Aguiar, double bass and Mariana Vieira, composer and audiovisual technician. The 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗼 brings pieces by Luciano Berio, Clotilde Rosa and Anne Victorino d’Almeida, among others, with images by João Pedro Oliveira, Marianne Harlé, Daniel Rondulha and Emanuel Pimenta.
On the 25th, at 9 pm, at Cineteatro Louletano, “𝗘𝗡𝗰𝗼𝗱𝗲”, a multidisciplinary play by Yola Pinto and Simão Costa, arrives. In the year in which they celebrate a decade of artistic collaboration, the dancer and choreographer and the pianist and composer will debut their new joint creation, “ENcode_we’ve got others under our skin”. “𝗘𝗡𝗰𝗼𝗱𝗲” unfolds the classic model of creating a show in the transdisciplinary area of performing arts, bringing together artists and institutions of Art (music-performing arts-visual arts) and Science, which reflect, in their diversity, the transversal approach of this research. duo of artists. “The stage appears as if it were an exhibition room, in which there are neither visitors nor visitors, neither objects nor subjects; all are and are part of the same interdependent ecosystem. An approach to a new concept of ecology is being tested, as a collaborative act of all the organisms that constitute it”, explains the duo.
On November 26, there is “𝗠𝘂́𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗮 𝗔𝗹𝗴𝗮𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗼𝘀 𝗱𝗼 𝗱𝗼 𝗙𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗼”, at 9 pm, at the Auditorium of Solar da Música Nova. The project comes from Visualista Tiago Pereira and musician Sílvio Rosado using students from the Loulé Music Conservatory, with the aim of encouraging young people to create new pieces. The two authors, who formed the “Sampladélicos”, have done a remarkable job in the renewal of Portuguese musical traditions, based on traditional roots. Remember that Tiago Pereira is the author of Antena 2’s program “Portuguese Music a Liking Her Own”, promising to bring to Loulé several tongue twisters, ordered dances, prayers, songs, proverbs and rhymes that will be worked with the young musicians from the Francisco Rosado Conservatory, in Loulé. In short: the creation of a new message in the present, based on the past, from the Algarve in the future.
The following day, on the 27th, “𝗔𝘇𝗲𝗻𝗵𝗮” arrives at 17:00, also at Solar da Música Nova. “𝗔𝘇𝗲𝗻𝗵𝗮” is an illustrated concert, made by two: the music is provided by the guitar of Rui Carvalho, better known as Filho da Mãe, and the visual part by the artist Cláudia Guerreiro. A sensitive journey to a place in Alentejo, where the sculptor Jorge Vieira and the sculptor Noémia Cruz lived, in the house where, once, D. Dinis had a lover. A “portrait” of cosmic and intuitive loves in places we all belong, the impossibilities of love and the strange conditions in which it decides to happen. With Rui’s guitar in the background, Cláudia paints and creates sets, using puppet-like paper figures and moving light on a glass, which is filmed and projected. All in real time.
On the 27th, but at night, at the Cineteatro Louletano, there is “𝗧𝗿𝗮𝘃𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗮𝗦”, with concept, artistic creation and direction by Marta Jardim, a performance that premiered at the CCB in Lisbon and now arrives in Loulé. “Debating with yourself in the world” is the motto for the crossing of a naked woman, a woman who seeks, who seeks, who is alone and can
