In the audio-visual music project with documentary elements the independent electronic dance music goes beyond its own bounds from both musical and geographical perspectives. It is the fourth time it gives the participants the chance to get to know noteworthy towns and cities, their historical and natural beauties within the scope of culture and art typical for the countries of the European Quartet. Different visual artists are delegated to the different countries, where they gather inspiration, and eventually creatively present it all in a studio. Consequently, the original visual piece of art gets exclusive soundtrack from a producer and DJ from one of the Visegrad Group countries.
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.
Honza Poš is a Czech visual artist, member of Time Based Media dealing with videos, sound and interactive installations including video projection and video mapping. His light installations normally create the atmosphere of Komiks warehouse parties in Prague, where the focus was on the contemporary independent electronic dance music. His personal experiences from Krakow are artistically captured through illuminating objects embodying the ultimate energy centre and the rhythm of the city, where the format reflects the dynamics and variability of the water surface of the Vistula. The visual artistic work is presented in a studio owned by Kvant, the technology partner of the vulcān project, and the lasers are designed and produced in Slovakia. The studio lights are handled by Honza Poš and Jakub Dibdiak.
The emotional nuance of the Krakow experience is also present throughout the dynamic performance of Denes Toth, the ambassador of the Slovak independent electronic dance music scene. Denes is a DJ, producer and founder of the successful Moody electronic music event series, a performer in the name of melodic house, thanks to what he established himself on both the domestic and international music scene. As a producer, he has released on Circus Recordings based in Liverpool and Mono.Noise based in Berlin. He regularly performs alongside world-known artists in Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary – well demonstrated by line-up records from festivals such as B my Lake, Sziget, Balaton Sound, Grape, Beatsfor Love and more.
