Artist performance: Linalab && !ME
Linalab && !ME are Lina Bautista and Diego Suárez, two artists who crossed their paths for continuing their explorations about the analogic and manual side of both music and image. They seek to create sound and visual landscapes getting the farest away from digital methods and generating it in real time, giving the show an improvisation character.
Linalab is a multiple singularity. It's a whole and a unity, a solitary sound, and a note. A frequency that remains in time to become more complex, to become entangled, to become noise; melody, song and then silence. She composed her first work, Ecliptica, inside a telescope imitating its shape, but instead of superimposing lenses to enhance the look and observe the universe, she superimposed sound layers – field recordings, guitars and voices – to produce complex textures that, when added, they do not see, but touch the universe. In her second album, Doom, she imagines how the end of the world should sound. Proposes four possible scenarios and to each one, she carefully constructs a scaled model, resulting in four small destruction: four small sound apocalypses. In her most recent work, Still Alive, she realized that there is no doomsday, only intermediate days. There is no apocalypse, no epic destruction, only infinite rearrangements of particles that originate further infinite sonic possibilities.
Linalab does not only exists on stage. She also understands music as an investigation. She is part of TOPLAP exploring and promoting Live Coding and Algoraves. Orquesta del Caos, researching and promoting experimental music and sound art, to Familiar DIY, developing electronics sound devices, and Sons de Barcelona, encouraging and promoting interest for sound and sound technologies.
!ME it’s an multimedia artist who moves in between photography, videoart and programming, and has led him to research with algorthmic video, and generative,reactive and interactive visuals. He was Apolo’s Canibal resident VJ from 2015 to 2020, and he collaborates with musicians and artists of all kinds (experimental music, dancers, interactive theatre…) doing live visuals. He uses live cinema, videoart, live coding, generative visuals an liquid ligth technique in his work.
