VALENCIA (EP). The Center del Carme Cultura Contemporània (CCCC) and Berklee College of Music celebrate the third edition of ‘INOCON’ from April 7-9, a hybrid event – online and face-to-face – that unites music, art and technology with “top students” from Berklee College of Music in a concert, two art installations and talks. The “INOCON” project was forged in the midst of a pandemic and aims to offer conferences, activities and concerts to its visitors. All this “is part of a technological musical experience and, at the same time, is a platform for contact between the industry and new talents related to technology”, reported the Generalitat in a press release.
The director of the Center del Carme, José Luis Pérez Pont, stressed that “the CCCC is committed to new artistic formats and to the use of technology as a dissemination tool capable of breaking down barriers and facilitating access to culture”. On the closing day of the event, Saturday April 9, all the activity will be concentrated at the Center del Carme with two art installations –‘Luxonus’ and ‘Rainbow for tomorrow’– and the ‘INO-CONCERT’ , “a Closing Concert which will show the talent of the school’s students and which can also be followed by ‘streaming’ Access to all activities is free until full capacity, and no prior registration is necessary.
The ‘INOCON’ facilities
The first of the installations that can be visited at the Center del Carme from next Saturday until April 17, within the framework of ‘INOCON 2022’, is ‘Luxonus’, “a participatory proposal based on a study of the behavior of waves light in space and their relationship with the different media”, which will be located in the Sala Contrafuertes from Saturday noon. The experiment consists of three stages, “in which the projection of animations on materials shows the different physical properties of light, accompanied by a sound piece inspired by these”, they explained from the organization .
An hour later, at 1:00 p.m., Espai D will open ‘Rainbow for tomorrow’, an audiovisual installation that “reimagines sound waves between overlapping colored lines, through an interactive projection in which participants are invited to manipulate the lines using help of technological tools”. The installation aims to show how “the participation of different people is able to create something valuable and, at the same time, seeks to make art accessible to everyone”.
The ‘INO-CONCERT’ will be the closing act of this edition of ‘INOCON’: ”a concert in which Berklee València will show the talent of its students through a selection of performances and a live DJ set in the cloister gothic of the CCCC”. Performances will take place between 9:00 p.m. and 11:15 p.m. and will feature the participation of Adam Kaleta, Rick Chang, Peter Summer, Páton Hardy, Rory McFadden, Wes Paluska, Nelleke Kuipers, Christian Dias and DJ Steddy Hands, LA .CO .NY and Mariatti. In addition to taking place in person, with free access until full capacity, the concert will also be streamed live on Berklee Valencia’s YouTube channel.
