Luis Sanz and Niculin Barandun Embarked on Inspiring Five-Week Tour of Mexico
Audiences were captivated by a unique blend of experimental audiovisual art as artists Niculin Barandun and Luis Sanz embarked on an immersive five-week tour of Mexico. This fascinating collaboration invited audiences to experience a series of performances in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Valle de Bravo, Oaxaca and Monterrey.
Niculin Barandun, a Swiss artist with a penchant for innovation, presented his latest audiovisual concert «Topia» as part of the tour. Through improvisational exploration, Barandun wove together computer-generated audiovisual landscapes that evoked sensations of intimacy, sensitivity, and movement. This work explored the interplay between sound and ancient landscapes, creating an immersive experience that transcended language.
Luis Sanz, known for his exhilarating audiovisual experiences, brought his vision to the tour with his performance «Flexum». Sanz’s exploration of synthetic sound and computer graphics created a unique sonic journey that challenged traditional boundaries. Through intricate compositions and innovative modulation techniques, Sanz invited the audience to explore the ever-evolving territories of experimental sound.
More than just a series of performances, the Mexico Tour was an opportunity to engage with Mexico’s cutting-edge experimental music scene. Both Barandun and Sanz shared a commitment to pushing creative boundaries and providing audiences with an immersive experience that encouraged introspection and connection.
