Artists of four countries. Four original audio-visual creations. Four special venues. Cooperation with no borders. The main vision of the vulcān: activate your local energy project. Different visual artists are delegated to the different countries, where they gather inspiration, and eventually creatively present it all in a studio. Consequently, each of the four original visual pieces of art gets exclusive soundtrack from a producer and DJ with origins in one of the Visegrad Group countries. Each part will be live-streamed and they can be consequently watched on the vulcān productions YouTube channel as well.
The third part of the project will take place in the Czech Republic, at a venue well known by festival goers who have visited the Colours of Ostrava and the Beats for Love festivals. The Dolní Vítkovice industrial complex, unique on a global scale served between 1828-1998 as coal mine and ironworks. Currently utilised as an international cultural-artistic and educational centre, the sight has ensured perfect dark atmosphere to the visual project to present its next visual and music processing.
Daniel Besnyő and Patrik Kiss are visual artists who created the Cloudhitects projects of live audio-visual performance, in which they are dealing with the transformation of great buildings in Hungary to virtual 3D cloud architectures. At the event of the vulcān: activate your local energy project they are transforming the Dolní Vítkovice industrial complex into an interactive playground in a way that the laser-scanned area of the factory is projected and manipulated in a 3D environment while using their imagination. They creatively processed the visual materials gathered in the industrial area in the Kvant laser studio with Slovak background. Daniel Besnyő is a visual artist from Budapest, Hungary and one of the founders of the first Hungarian professional forum of his field: VJ Centrum Budapest. Patrik Kiss is also from Budapest, Hungary. Patrik Kiss is generally a sound engineer from Budapest, Hungary, who after several music bands and electronic music performances, started to work as a sound designer and lately explores audio-visual peripherals and procedural 3D possibilities.
Kuba Sojka is a Polish producer. He created the Poly Face futuristic project focusing on electro with elements of ghetto-tech and IDM music. The first tracks of the Poly Face project did not exist through the traditional release, but through the game Cyberpunk 2077, in a special mask, which is to evoke associations with the cyber world. In combination with the industrial area of Dolní Vítkovice and the 3D environmental analysis of the former plant you can look forward to a special live performance.
