SONPENDULAR is an audiovisual concert with immersive projection mapping by artists Sergio Mora-Diaz, Marco Martinez and Andrea Gana, which takes place inside the Church of El Carmen Bajo de San Rafael in Independencia, Santiago, Chile. The temporary intervention makes use of projecion mapping, lighting and live music to reactivate and resignify this religious heritage building, in disuse since 1958.

 

The project is an aesthetic research about time and space, which invites the viewer to a ritual of light and sound, rich in geometric patterns and audio in real time. The sound consists of ambient electronic music, mixing sounds from field recordings and original compositions performed using Ableton Live and analog synthesizers.

 

The visuals display geometric and generative patterns designed in real time using Madmapper, Modul8 and TouchDesigner, seeking to enhance the architectural elements of the building. These compositions refer to cyclic patterns and pendular movement, generating intense immersive atmospheric states.

The artists behind Sonpendular are Andrea Gana in live music, along with Sergio Mora-Diaz and Marco Martinez in the real-time creation of visuals and immersive projection mapping, produced by Delight Lab and Chincol Producciones. The piece was first performed in July 2018 and later in January 2019 with the collaboration of guest musicians Tan Levine and Mariana Olivares, adding gongs and percussion to the atmosphere proposed by the original piece.

“Having an affordable software solution that works well without expensive unique hardware is key for us.” by Limbic Cinema.

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?
Limbic Cinema: Limbic Cinema is a co-operative of artists based in Bristol formed in 2012 by the members, Alex Wright, Tom Newell, Thomas E Pryce and Thomas Buttery.

We met as VJ’s on the club and festival circuits around the UK and decided we should team up. Despite the inconsistent wages and sticky floors, club nights always provided us the creative freedom to experiment and take risks. Over the course of four years, we’ve built strong relationships with festivals and events that we share a similar ethos and creative visions with; we’re particularly fond of Glastonbury Festival, Shambala, Freerotation, Alfresco Disco and Greenman Festival where we’ve exhibited numerous installations and in 2015 projection.

Beyond the music scene, we’re focusing more on the realms of theatre, large-scale building mapping, and Art Installations. For example, making contributions to The Stick House, and bringing the Wren Library in Cambridge to life with narrative driven visuals were both hugely fulfilling projects.

 “Madmapper changed the way that we were making mappings, things get easier.”

By VJ Eletroiman

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?
VJ Eletroiman: Hi, my name is Ricardo Cançado, aka VJ Eletroiman, and since 2000 I am working with VJing,  stage design, audiovisual performance and in the last years I was dedicated to Video-Mapping techniques.

Since the beginning of 2003, I am developing a Live AV called Representa Corisco. This project was based on an imagery inspired by the Brazilian popular culture and it explores political and social issues through the iconography of the “cangaço” movement and one of its characters: Corisco. After so many years developing this project, now I present a 45 minutes performance with animations that mix video with other techniques including photography, drawing, 3D, and 2D animation.

 “I don’t choose to be an artist, but sometimes it just happens.”

by Kalma VJ

Madmapper: Tell us about yourself?
Kalma VJ: I´m Kalma, a visualist with a sound engineer background. I use real time processes to create installations, mapping, and vjs sets.

M: You have been giving workshops in Berlin for a while. What do you want your students to learn and what is your challenge?
K: At the moment, I’m working on my next workshop in Berlin. We’ll learn the basics of Modul8 and Madmapper. I´m very excited because the people registered are coming from very different backgrounds, and all of them already have an idea about what they want to learn.

CultureHUB LED Future Mapper© is one day workshop where students will learn basic knowledge of Projection Mapping technology to map LED lights with a special guest, a co-founder of MadMapper, Boris Edelstein from Geneva!

Our exercise will be choosing right types of LED light, recognizing how the video contents map and control LED light, and creating a simple geometric LED lights structure to take away using MadMapper 2.5 Beta with new features, Surface Shaders and more. We also will be showing GarageCube’s new LED light product, and more advanced LED light structure demonstration during this workshop. All students will receive a free 30-day full access of Modul8 and MadMapper.

DATE 6/11 SAT
TIME 2:00 – 8:00pm | 6 hours

NS13

Narative Stracture 13 – Intensive Workshop Video Mapping

Registration:
Email to info@mademotion.net (limited to 5 students Plazas)
Place: Mademotion C/ Doctor Fourquet, 3. 1ºB, 28012 Madrid.
Price: 100€

The course will be focused on video mapping technique and the concept of projection beyond the screen.

• We developed the imaging technique and its application in installations and performances.

• We teach how to project simultaneously on different surfaces with different motives and moving images as well as the production of content and its practical application.

• We investigated the projected not only as art but as an art form and language image.

We approach:
Image: Analog and digital (created with video / photo / real-time / code)

Projection techniques, real-time and facilities.
Space: analysis of the form / s and creating a blueprint.
Application: Scenic / installation / interactive.
