The Metaphysical Box will play @ Macro Asilo in Rome with surrealist performer Gerald Bruneau in a Psychedelic performance
The performance focuses on improvisation and the interaction between visual and sound material. It is an audiovisual installation in which the aesthetic and formal models of two different eras meet.
The concept recovers and reworks the analogue generation of moving psychedelic images used in the light shows of the 1960s of which Gerald Bruneau was the protagonist.
The psychedelic visual is reread according to the aesthetics of the digital epic in symbiosis with electronic music in a performance in which the classicism of analog photo-luminous manipulation coexist with experimentation electro-acoustic.
The surrealist and gestural heritage of the pop-art era finds a new identity within the contemporary electro-acoustic heritage
The event coincides with the release on Eclectic Productions of the new album “Shamans of the Soundscapes” recorded live in the regional park of Bracciano/Martignano.
