Live Performers Meeting 2022

We are very excited to invite you to LPM 2022 Rome, a think-tank and a celebration of Audio Visuals Performing Arts.

The XXIII edition of LPM Live Performers Meeting is set to happen from the 9th to 12th of June in the Nuovo Cinema Aquila, Rome, Italy.

We want to let artists be a real part of LPM, by participating actively to let it happen as their very own project. Let’s create the future of AVarts together!

To be part of the meeting, please follow the procedures in the Call to participate section of the website and choose the subscription option that suits your needs the most.

Registration is open until April 18, 2022.

LPM 2022 Rome offers a unique opportunity to participate in 4 days packed with audiovisual performances, VJing experiences, workshops, panel discussions and product showcases, all presented by more than 300 artists, professionals and Audio Visuals Performing Arts enthusiasts from 40 countries.

This XXIII edition seeks to recognise and further broaden the existing practices of live video performance in a wide and diverse program.

VJs, AV artists, designers, newcomer enthusiasts, professionals and the audience will be involved in the manifold planned activities, ranging from experimental audiovisual performances, architectural mapping shows, VJ-DJ Sets to workshops, lectures, roundtables and presentations and launches of products and hardwares, with a special focus on Free and Open Sourceprojects.

Meeting areas devoted to the interaction among the hundreds of participants will be the axis for the whole duration of the event.

Designed as a real meeting place, a space that fulfils an important opportunity for dialogue and exchange, LPM encourages research, the encounter and exchange between different forms of artistic expression in the Audio Visuals Performing Arts field, the interaction and experimentation with multiple techniques and digital technologies, ranging between analog, software and hardware.

The Meeting promotes transnational movement and exchange of ideas, artworks and artists. All funds collected by LPM are invested in innovative research and experimentation in the field of live visual arts with the latest technologies in hand.

Since 2004, LPM hosted more than 6.156 artists, 3.219 performances, workshops and showcases, recorded an overall amount of 73 participating countries and welcomed more than 1.500.000 visitors with editions in Apulia (IT), Xalapa (MX), Minsk (BY), Mexico City (MX), Cape Town (SA), Eindhoven (NL) and two in Amsterdam (NL) in addition to those held in Rome (IT).

Through our 18 years of experience, we were able to draw a conceptual map of the trends that influenced the creation of live video performances the most. The program of this edition reflects and investigates these trends:

  • Live Cinema
    Works performed exclusively live, capable of demonstrating a narrative combined with experimental approach; projects in continual tension between perceptive experience and performative act.
  • Video Mapping
    A technique of video-projection that animates architectural objects. The effect is spectacular and exciting, it confuses and seduces our perceptions through the dialogue among images and tridimensional surfaces. The usual object the spectator is familiar with is transformed into an entirely new form, the public spaces are reshaped and renewed.
  • Digital Freedoms
    Activism, coherent, appealing, sense-making, participatory and visually appealing data visualization of public or private data. These forms of artistic expression have been able to inform, question, challenge, empower, activate and mobilize people around the world.
  • Visual Gender
    Thanks to the gender studies, queer theory and contemporary art, the vision of the body, the sexual, LGBTQ+ identity is connected and manifests through the Audio Visuals Performing Arts sector and the audio-video language becomes an instrument of emancipation of the genre.
  • Generative Visual
    Thanks to an encoding of the active and reactive world around us, new digital biospheres offer the public the experience of complex networks composed of simple sensory-bit binary codes.
  • Stereoscopic 3D
    Stereoscopic vision allows to create a complete perceptive immersive experience through three-dimensional display of standard video content. Ad hoc software and technologies are used to manipulate the visual perception of space to create “augmented” worlds.
  • Lasers & LEDS
    This technologies coming from lights sector are nowadays manageable with live visuals software and are playing a leading role in many brand new AV shows.
  • VR, AR, MR
    Connection between artistic creation and progressive technology includes increasing fusion of virtual (VR), augmented (AR) and mixed (MR) reality allows to explore new forms of expression as well as to research possible overlap with the scientific, technological, educational and social fields.

Yorobi:

Fuelled by foundation jungle culture. Moved by the melting pot Driven by futurism, eclecticism and those exciting playgrounds between the genres, the eras and the flavours; Yorobi’s been deep the laboratory since 99, forever studying the dark art of expression through beats and bass.
Magnetised to the movement through her own mixed heritage roots, her musical vision is one of unity, fusion and no boundaries. Whether it’s released on heavily respected labels like Exit and Parallax; whether it’s performed at nights such as Rupture London and clubs like OT301 Amsterdam (or any inclusive free rave in between); where it’s broadcast on radio stations like innovative new radio platform Echobox or the legendary Jungletrain where she made a name for herself in the mid-2000s; Yorobi’s selections and productions consistently create space for tempos, emotions and genres to blur and mutate with tension and release.

Magical Mystery Aftershow Party

Magical Mystery – „War das nicht eigentlich ein Ding von den Beatles? Und ist das damals nicht irgendwie in die Hose gegangen?“ Karl Schmidt, seines Zeichens bester Freund, Ersatzbruder und Saufkumpan von Sven Regeners legendärer Romanfigur Herr Lehmann, ist nicht leicht zu beeindrucken – vielleicht liegt das aber auch an den Medikamenten, mit denen er vollgepumpt wurde: Am Tag des Mauerfalls kam der Installations-Künstler nach einem depressiven Nervenzusammenbruch in die Klinik. Doch nun – 6 Jahre später, Deutschland ist eine einzige wiedervereinigte Afterwork-Party – bricht er aus dem tristen Leben in seiner Therapie-WG aus. Sei dabei!

Philo (Précey/ jungletrain.net, Köln)
Syncope (Oszillate, Tü)
PapaLoco (DBM / Oszillate, Tü)
Visuals: das Shining
Our Guest:
Philo proves you don’t need decades of experience to understand and push boundaries of a genre. With national and international recognition, Philo’s originally vinyl-exclusive selection has evolved over time into a digital hybrid in the pursuit of the best possible sound. Characteristics of her eclectic selection involve rough UK bass, which is somewhere between breakbeat, half time, dubby bassbin jungle and footwork with a splash of classic 90s aswell as house influences according to the maxim ” keep moving forward“!
Not long ago she started producing and released her first tune “Zooma Patrol” in cooperation with Moogie Fox on the berlin label Headlight Records – her first solo-release is gonna be out in beginning of 2022 on the Brazilian Label Nice & Deadly – more to come!
In 2021, together with Marie Montexier and Aino DJ, she founded the event series Précey, which focuses on female and non-binary artists to push the scene in Cologne.
She also hosts her radio show on jungletrain.net

Map, Fold & Glow Festival 2022

In functional programming, fold refers to a family of higher-order functions that analyze a recursive structure through use of a given combining operation, recombine the results of recursively processing its constituent parts, building up a return value. Map represents an associative abstract data type composed of a collection of key, value pairs. This is exactly what is happening with the cultural scene at the very moment. We systematically and methodically change concepts, mix online and offline life and try to offer an optimal solution for events and cultural enjoyment for all participants. We present interactive art, music & design – for visitors and online guests with artists* on site and around the world. This project receives state funding.

New Work: Endgame

We aka das Shining are working on a new project: Endgame

Extinction is the termination of a kind of organism or of a group of children, usually a species. The moment of extinction is generally considered to be the death of the last individual of the species, although the capacity to breed and recover may have been lost before this point. 

As we are at the moment at the beginning of the so-called Holocene extinction we created Endgame to draw attention to it. This performance deals with the connection of different creatures and their extinction. Our virtual life forms grow and thrive, they influence each other, explore their surroundings, mate with others and little by little, they die. The extinction of species sets in. 

Spectators of this event are invited to observe – and hear – the mesmerizing spectacle and the devastating end of existence, without the ability to intervene. 

The audience can influence the sounds generated by the installation by moving virtual ears via their smartphones to individual points of the scene. These ears generate signals that are evaluated by our synthesizers and thus control the performance together with us. 

The performance will premiere at the World Earth Day Festival 2022.
