Multidisciplinary music group Cre.Art Project Ensemble will perform the fifth edition of VISUALITY, a multimedia concert series written, directed and designed by flutist Guillermo Laporta. VISUALITY, is the realization of an original approach to the classical music concert, combining chamber music with theater and dance. The piece transforms the stage into a canvas using hundreds of video mapped cubes specially designed for each performance space.
This project has been presented in venues such as Mary Flager Cary Hall at the DiMenna Center, the Cervantes Institute of New York, and the Artisphere Theater in Washington D.C.
"The notion that a sound can manifest itself as color, or that any one sense can trigger the experience of another is called synesthesia, something the Cre.Art Project explores in its VISUALITY concert. Pairing chamber music with live theater, dance and video projection, the Spanish arts collective strives to make you see the sound by presenting nine different works that flow into one another."
