[microsound] casaluce-geiger news /streamfest - international art fair for the new media

26th-28th July 2007
Starting time: 8pm
Quartiere Fieristico, Galatina (Le)

The StreamFest is the first international art fair for the new media in 
South-East Italy, an event whose aim is to present the creative applications 
of the most advanced technologies in the Salento, an Italian region selected 
as a special location for the European cultural summer.

Running from the 26th to the 28th of June 2007, the Fair District of 
Galatina will host a sample of interactive installations and audiovisual 
experimentations by some of the forerunner of a research path which tends to 
conjugate images and music through the creation of VJ sections stretching 
beyond the usual modalities of live concerts and music videos.

Among the internationally acclaimed protagonists, the StreamFest will 
present the already historical HASCII CAM from Jaromil, the free radio war 
experience of Cecile Landman with SteamTime, the ambient installation of 
Scenocosme, the Italo-austrian duo with Salentinian roots, Casaluce-Geiger, 
the music of North-Europe with Lacklaste from Finland and Felix Randomix 
together with Carsten Schultz from Germany. The Italian VJ scene is 
represented, among others, by Flxer, Kinotek and Claudio Sinatti. During the 
StreamFest, a project created by the Master in Digital Environment of the 
NABA-Milan will also be presented.

StreamFest is a project of the Cultural Association "sud-eStream" (art 
director Antonio Rollo, with the consulency of Carlo Infante and the 
Performing Media Lab, Luca Barbeni from the Toshare Festival, and Giulia 
Mainenti) in collaboration with Ente Fiera Salento S.p.a, supported by 
Regione Puglia, and with the patronage of the Academy of Arts in Lecce.

The first edition of the StreamFest looks towards the future of the Salento 
region with the awareness that it is possible to conjugate technological 
development and the love for nature harmonizing the electronic nights of the 
StreamFest and the days spent by the sea in the typical Salentinian mood.
The party atmosphere traditionally characterizing the Salentinian nights can 
be translated in a contemporary note through the multisensorial 
partecipation and emotional involvement which are the aim of the artistic 
researches about multimediality.
The VJ and Dj sets of the StreamFest are going to be populated by the new 
authors of the interactions between sound and image, who, like shamans, 
manipulate electronic visions for emotionally involved spectators in search 
of new proposals.

This event is sponsored by ClioCom e Movimedia, Lecce.
