AVVA (Toshimaru Nakamura / Billy Roisz)
AVVA is the duo of Toshimaru Nakamura and Billy Roisz. The project's name, which stands for «Audio Video / Video Audio», is a reference to their particular working process. Nakamura produces feedback with his no input mixing board, and Roisz uses these electronic signals to generate moving optical patters and thus cerate a video projection based on Nakamura's music. The Japanese musician sometimes bases his performance on the visual results obtained by Roisz, in a circular process created in real time. A unique synaesthetic project created with pre-digital tools, presented in Spain for the first time.

Born in Nagoya and based in New York, Sawako is one of the leading names on the international digital scene. Her work has been released on the labels 12k, Anticipate and Community Library, and her eclectic list of collaborators includes Taylor Deupree, Jacob Kirkegaard and Andrew Deutsch. When she turns her hand to audiovisuals, the Japanese artist casts nets between the organic, pixilated forms of her personal sound universe and the projected images she generates live. Sawako's multimedia performances include field recordings and digitally manipulated video fragments, bluring the boundaries between virtual representation and reality. An experimental, ethereal experience for all ages.

Ryoichi Kurokawa presents Rheo
Ryoichi Kurokawa spreads his time and work between sound art, installations and live performance. His projects have been presented at the Tate Modern and the Ars Electronica and Transmediale festivals. His latest work, Rheo, is an audiovisual concert inspired by the philosophy of Heraclitus that recreates the changes that modify natural landscapes over time. A spectacular multimedia project with high-definition multi-screen projections and a 5.1 sound system that combines sound and video recordings, digital audio and image synthesis, and a series of generative digital processes. Rheo's scope and technical complexity are sure to guarantee an intense sensory experience.
