30/109

video-art
During August 2010 Martin Virgili, a contemporary music composer from Argentina, invited me to be part of "Imagoo Mundi" Project. His idea was to generate a new kind of Concert in which the Beethoven late work "30/109" could be played for first time in Mar del Plata. He wanted to create a mix betwen diferent art medias that could make a clasic concert attractive to young people and generate new audience. 

Martin got Ines Sabatini (Arg), who got an amazing carrier as piano interprete, selected for playing the piece, and he was looking for 3 artist that could create a video-interpretation of the Beethoven work. He looked for 3 talented artists with different works and views to get 3 extremely different interpretations of 30/109. Selected as one of those artist, and with a zero knowledge on video-editing, i contacted Emiliano Montani for the editing work and we co-produced this video. 

With the idea of "Satori" in mind i listened to Beethoven`s piece and thinked on a serie of works inspired by his complex sounds a melodies. I used 2 Video Cameras and recorded the entire process of 4 of my paintings. Them i called Emiliano and explained him my idea: a fast-foward video with changes on the speed that can show my work process and match the music movements of the piece. It was a hard editing process, and off course we hatted our slow computers at every render. But we were happy with the result of the work.

On October the 9th, the project came alive as a live concert in wich the 3 videos were proyected at the same time on a cinema screen as Ines Sabatini played the piece.
This video, in sycro with a live piano interpretation of Beethoven`s "30/109" by Isabel Sabatini, were featured at Mar del Plata`s Colon Theater on October 9th, 2010
