Aire: Visual Concert for Nomads at Art All Night - Nuit Blanche DC 2015

“Aire – Visual Concert for Nomads” is a cinematic, musical and poetic piece created and directed Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) and Javier Moreno (composition, double bass) in collaboration with Isabelle Duverger (animation and projection mapping) that travels through time and space, for those seeking permanently, never having the feeling of forever.

The piece is designed as a site-specific visual concert, conceived from an original musical suite and developed as collaboration into an allegory of images and immersive video mapped projection design on an architectural space.

Exploring the nomadic nature of our lives in a geographical and emotional level, we invite the viewer on an adventure through the senses, where love and traveling are intertwined in an inseparable way, telling the story of the ephemeral and the eternal.

Javier Moreno: Musical Director, Composer and double bass
