LPM participate to LIMINAL, a new cultural project which takes place monthly over three days in the spaces of E.S.C. Atelier, in the district of San Lorenzo.
LIMINAL is conceived to create a free space for cultural experimentation between different performing arts. A meeting place where different languages hybridize. Away from the degeneration of club culture, LIMINAL aims to be a place of sharing, around the most innovative expressions of contemporary electronic music and live video performance.
LPM participates to Urban-map, festival dedicated to the new frontiers of digital art, applied to architecture and urban space.
Urban_map will give a different overview of the urban areas of Tor Sapienza during the weekend of the spring equinox, with multisensory installations, architectural projection mapping and an exclusive concert on the road.
The artists of the french collective Coin and the musician Nohista will present a unique premiere bringing 256 helium filled balloons that, enlightened by inner led, will dance with the wind to create a wonderful “magical” effect.
The music of Errichetta Underground, well known roman orchestra, will bring their sound from klezmer and Balkan influences in an innovative concert on the road.
On Saturday, from 19.oo to 23.00, LPM presents the roman collective Neocortex, who will animate the facade of the church of Tor Sapienza with a mapping projection, by creating an high impact performance and synergy of colors, sounds, lights and images .
Urban_map transform the entire space of the urban complex of Ater Tor Sapienza in an innovative open-space arena, a place of dialogue between some of the most innovative artistic languages.
LPM attends the first edition of Periferica #ArtIsAct, the interactive and digital arts festival organized by the Fusolab that will take place from 16th to 21th February 2015 at Fusolab 2.0 and in some public spaces of the eastern outskirts of Rome.
Periferica #ArtIsAct aims to build new visions and collective narratives of urban reality by mixing traditional
media and collaborative and interactive tools. The festival aims to be an interface between the territory, the city and the network through hybridization of diverse artistic languages.
Periferica #ArtIsAct is one of the first initiatives in Italy dedicated to interactive and digital art, a type of art that is meaningful only in the presence of active participation of the public: the viewer becomes “spect-actor” and the work
itself does not exist if the viewer remains passive. This concept can be borrowed in concept of the city that takes shape only if people are actively involved in its construction and its development: and it is this very image that suggested us the name of the first edition of the festival, called “Urban Breaths” because it is focused on art as a nourishment for the city.
The festival offers a rich program with over 60 entries in three different areas:
– Live performances: electronic music, VJing, live cinema, interactive dance, theater and architectural videomapping;
– Interactive experiences: installations, software, hack, net and art games;
– Learning Acts: workshops, talks and children workshops.
LPM participates actively the festival, by presenting many different artists performing several activities as:

Periferica #ArtIsAct, realized by the Department of Culture, Creativity and Artistic Promotion and Tourism – Shows and Events service of the city of Rome, has a scientific committee featuring Tatiana Bazzichelli, Gianluca del Gobbo, Debora Ferrari, Luca Traini, Salvatore Iaconesi, Oriana Persico, Carlo Infante and Martin Romeo, all of them nationally and internationally renowned in the field of digital and interactive art, curators of festivals, founders of international networks such as LPM – Live Performers Meeting and AOS – Art is Open Source, journalists and authors of books on topics related to the festival.
In addition to the rich program of Italian and international artists involved, in order to give visibility to emerging creativity, the Fusolab Association has promoted a call to find a work of a young artist. The work, selected by both the scientific and organizing committee, will be exhibited at the Fusolab 2.0 during the festival.

LPM partecipa a TEN • 10 ANNI DI ESC, due giorni di musica, arte e dibattiti per festeggiare i 10 anni di autogestione di Esc, storico Atelier Autogestito di Roma presentando una serie di live performance in entrambe le serate, che spaziano dal vjset al mapping, alle performance audio/video.
“Dieci anni di ESC: dieci anni di lotte studentesche e metropolitane, di connessioni transnazionali contro il neoliberismo e per la costruzione di nuove istituzioni del comune dentro e contro la crisi del capitalismo globale. In questi anni abbiamo attraversato movimenti, incontrato esperienze di autorganizzazione, costruito spazi meticci e molteplici di conflitto ed organizzazione, abbiamo imparato a reinventarci nell’incontro con esperienze di lotta nello spazio transnazionale, dall’Europa in trasformazione ai movimenti delle Primavere Arabe, dalle piazze greche e spagnole ai movimenti delle Americhe ed oltre.“

PATCHlab is an opened event and invites everyone to participate in the workshops presenting multimedia tools in a broad sense, emerging outside the main trends and as an important element in the hands of contemporary artists. During the workshops, known Polish and foreign artists and lecturers are going to introduce to the participants the possibilities offered by new technologies and show how those can be used in practice.
PATCHlab is also a review of selected international AV performances during a special AV Night in Forum Przestrzenie with an ambitious electronic music with live visuals.

Tecniche di improvvisazione e saturazione mista: dalla forma/movimento alla forma/colore. L’umano e la macchina uniti nella ri-creazione dell’immaginario. Carbonio e silicio senzienti abbracciati in una danza che trasuda sudore e pixel trasformando madri in matrici, memorie in gesti, luce e buio in ritmo.

LPM will actively participate to the night program by presenting a live video mapping on Palazzo Re Enzo facade, on Friday 3rdOctober, by Ricardo Cancado aka Vj Eletroiman.
Eletroiman is the winner of Mapping Festival VJ Contest 2014 and 9 times winner of VJ Torna during LPM Cape Town 2014, LPM Rome 2013, LPM Mexico 2013, LPM Rome 2012 , LPM Rome 2011. He’s also the organizer Visual Brasil Festival and the founder of Hybrid Project
VJ Eletroiman represents Corisco, Oxossi and Macunaíma, characters of Brazilian culture that claim for political resistance and a constant discussion of a Brazilian identity.The objective of this project is to rethinking the video from its conjugation with other techniques. This idea of convergence allows a dialogue between various techniques, composing a hybrid language that is being developed from the beginning of 2003.
#LOSTMEMORIES is the payoff of the edition: thanks to the new technologies, the process of construction of memory – always centered on the activities of learning, developing and forgetting – enriches and produces hybrid forms of digital storage, where the boundaries between public and private are blurred and where technology and social practices are dynamically and reciprocally connected. However, the “dark side” of Internet needs to be considered when it affects the ability of memory to act as a bridge between past and present, it shapes individual identity or it strengthens social cohesion within a community.
The 2014 edition of roBOt Festival distinguishes itself with structural news concerning locations. The town clubs that hosted the night events of the festival during the weekend are giving way to a new and stand-alone space, which is important for its dimensions and characteristics, and will be supplied by BolognaFiere, one of the main European fair organizers.
As always, the diurnal base will be located in the historical centre of the city, in Palazzo Re Enzo; while MAMbo, after last year’s fortunate intuition, confirms and increases its contribution to the festival: it will host the activities promoted during the artistic residency of Icaro Zorbar, and will once again be the ideal location for roBOt Kids, the laboratory dedicated to kids, realized with MAMbo’s Educational Department, supported by the Del Monte Foundation which has believed in the value of the project since last year’s edition.
