"Aire" in the Hudson Valley, NY - Poughkeepsie, June 18, 2016



"Aire – Visual Concert for Nomads” is a cinematic, musical and poetic piece created and directed by Javier Moreno (composition, double bass) Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) in collaboration with Isabelle Duverger (animation and projection mapping) that travels through time and space, for those seeking permanently, never having the feeling of forever.

The piece is designed as a site-specific visual concert, conceived from an original musical suite and developed as collaboration into an allegory of images and immersive video mapped projection design on an architectural space.
Exploring the nomadic nature of our lives in a geographical and emotional level, we invite the viewer on an adventure through the senses, where love and traveling are intertwined in an inseparable way, telling the story of the ephemeral and the eternal.
This project, forged in New York, searches new forms of expression within the creative frame of contemporary art. The creation of suggestive atmospheres sustains a collective pulse accentuated by the international diversity of its artists.

"Aire – Visual Concert for Nomads” is community event supported by NeighborWorks America and Arts Mid-Hudson, in cooperation with Poughkeepsie Open Studios.
The project is made possible with funds from the Decentralizated Program, a rectand program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and the New York State Legislature, and administrated by Art Mid-Hudson.

June 16, 2016: Video Installation for La Noche From Spain at the Cervantes Institute New York

Our latest video installation meeting architecture and movement; a visual journey to the other side of the Atlantic in the middle of Manhattan.



"La Noche from Spain"
JUNE 16 | 7PM - 10:30PM | Instituto Cervantes New York | 211 E 49th St, New York, NY.


The Instituto Cervantes and the Spanish Tourism Board organize "La Noche from Spain", a celebration of Spanish culture and gastronomy in the Amster Yard, a hidden garden at the Instituto Cervantes New York.

"La Noche from Spain" will capture the essence of the Mediterranean Peninsula, transporting guests through a diverse cultural program and gastronomy, breaking stereotypes and showing how past and future meets in Spain.

"La Noche from Spain" will feature the jazz player Albert Marquès, a young pianist from Barcelona that has collaborated with numerous contemporary jazz masters in Paris and New York including Rémi Vignolo or Leon Parker. Albert will present an hour and a half concert with his jazz-fusion quartet.

The Brooklyn- based DJ and drummer, Alex Pasternak, will make guests dance with a DJ set that captures his broad influence of Spanish, African and Brazilian music. Alex has lived in Spain for few years and his eclectic repertoire combines international tastes and textures. He is a good example of an artist that absorbs the Mediterranean essence and mixes it up to the coolest of Brooklyn.

Video Projections by award winning artists, Laia Cabrera & Co, will decorate the walls of the Amster Yard with an installation meeting architecture and movement; a visual journey to the other side of the Atlantic in the middle of Manhattan. Laia Cabrera & Co’s work has been awarded and featured around the globe in landmarks like the Tempieto di Bramante in Rome, Times Square or the White Box Art Gallery in New York.

A lighting installation designed by Carlos García from the prestigious firm L’Observatoire International will illuminate parts of the garden in red light. Carlos has developed lighting projects for public spaces and hotels in New York City and Miami including the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach, as well as the future Hudson Yards.

Finally, the contemporary dancer and choreographer, Irene Savianes, alumni of Martha Graham’s School, has prepared a short piece representing the passage of travel, where Spanish traditional dance will meet contemporary technique.

Also, thanks to the collaboration with 3 prestigious restaurants in New York, Socarrat, Txikito and Salinas, elaborated tapas will be served all night. Again, tradition meeting new Spanish cuisine. Wines from Spain and Mahou Beer will also refresh the night.

"La Noche from Spain", a glimpse of tradition and future. A fiesta to start the summer in the city as if we were in the other side of the Atlantic.

Join us on June 16th from 7pm to 10:30pm
