Feltro: Displaced Acts of (Un)Related Causality

André Gonçalves, elektronika

 

Feltro je vzdevek portugalskega umetnika Andreja Goncalvesa. Feltro uporablja analogne sintetizatorje, prenosni računalnik in številne druge elektronske pripomočke za ustvarjanje performansov nežnih in na nek način melanholično strukturiranih pokrajin. Njegovi performansi so nenavadni, (zvočno) raztreseni in vsebinsko neenakomerni, vendar vsakič odražajo prostorsko specifičnost, kjer so predstavljeni z namenom, da se maksimira njihov potencial povezovanja poslušalcev v smeri spodbujanja kontemplativnega stanja.

Mrzel Ljubljanski večer, zavit v meglo, se zdi več kot primeren ambient tovrstnih zvočnih vsebin.

Na performansu bo Andre predstavil novo delo, ki ga je razvil med trenutno umetniško rezidenco pri MoTi - Muzeju tranzitornih umetnosti.

Feltro: Displaced Acts of (Un)Related Causality

André Gonçalves . electronics

 

Feltro is André Gonçalves solo moniker. Feltro makes use of analogue synthesizers, laptop and several other electronics to create performances of tender and somewhat melancholic textural landscapes. Feltro performances are rather rare, sparse and irregular in content, they take in consideration the site-specificity where being presented to maximize it’s potential to embrace and lead the audience in a path to a contemplative state. What better place to present his work than a cold Ljubljana night shrouded in mist.

 

For this performance he’ll make use of a new creation developed during it’s current residence at MoTA.
