Pronóstico para el L.E.V. 2014

Un año más la ciudad de Gijón acoge al Laboratorio de Electrónica Visual:

http://www.levfestival.com/14/

Este cartel y la gastronomía asturiana lo convierten en una cita ineludible. A continuación, una recreación de lo que será la cita a modo de preparación y pronóstico. Para no ir con los deberes sin hacer:

El preludio: “Trinity” de Electronic Performers. El Jueves 1 de Mayo el Teatro Jovellanos comenzará acogiendo esta performance de danza contemporánea que interactúa con un potente discurso audiovisual:

El Viernes 2, desde por la mañana se podrá visitar la instalación sonora que Mark Fell está desarrollando en su residencia en el LABoratorio de Sonido. Su trabajo se centra en ocupar este espacio a través de un sonido multicanal:

Por la tarde Martin Messier presentará “Sewing Machine Orchestra”. Una performance que tiene una estrecha relación con el arte contemporáneo conceptual:

Como siempre a las 22 h. en el teatro comenzarán los conciertos. La poética en forma de música clásica-vocal de Douglas Dare será lo primero que podremos oír:

Le sigue Herman Kolgen. Un magnífico artista sonoro que sorprenderá a más de uno con su “Seismik” al igual que sorprendió hace unos años Ryoichi Kurokawa:

A media noche nos desplazaremos a la iglesia: Esplendor Geométrico es siempre imprevisible. La figura de Arturo Lanz da para escribir un libro. Algunos viejos rockeros tienen su biografía en papel, sin duda, con menos méritos. En fin, preveo que hará un directo en la línea de su última gira, una vez publicado el extenso álbum “Ultraphoon”, tocando temas de éste y del anterior, “Desarrollos Geométricos”, con la esperanza de que suene alguno de sus clásicos o alguna novedad como anticipo del próximo álbum. De lo que no hay duda es que será un concierto completamente visceral que, con el añadido del entorno eclesiástico, puede que volvamos a ver a Arturo tirándose al público o con el micro en la garganta. Una gran misa para sus fieles:

Después nos desplazaremos de nuevo al teatro. Sentarse será hará difícil, pero la ocasión lo merece: Robert Henke presentará “Lumière”, su último directo audiovisual donde lo visual tiene tanto protagonismo como lo sonoro. Ya no se trata de proyecciones que acompañen o refuercen lo sonoro. El discurso abstracto y geométrico de Henke se desarrolla tanto musical como visualmente. No será algo innovador en cuanto a concepto, ya que guarda mucha similitud con el discurso geométrico del dúo cyclo., pero esta vez la innovación será en cuanto a la técnica de proyección de la luz:

De nuevo a la iglesia: Fasenuova será nuovamente impredecible, pero esta vez no en tan buen sentido como EG. Su ambiente popero puede desencadenar un concierto denso y pesado después de lo visto. Espero equivocarme y que apelen más a su lado industrial y rítmico que a lo Pop:

Para cerrar la noche, todo muy eclesiástico: Vatican Shadow. Quién más y quién menos ha oído hablar de él y sabe cómo se las gasta. Puede resultar que sea la guinda del pastel o que simplemente sus bailes epilépticos y su sonido industrial parezcan descafeinados tras ver a Esplendor Geométrico. De Arturo Lanz depende, él pondrá el listón:

Como siempre el Sábado comenzará en el Jardín Botánico. Tres conciertos muy condicionados por la climatología, la resaca y el disfrute de la gastronomía asturiana. Puede que Huias y la calidez de su folk se apaguen por la lluvia. Lo que no apagará ésta será su calidad y su romanticismo:

Lo mismo puede suceder con Throwing Snow y Luke Abbott. Compositores de música extremadamente cálida y sentimental que pueden reñir con el mal tiempo característico del norte. Cruzaremos los dedos:

Después, tarde libre para disfrutar de la ciudad. No dejo de recomendar la escultura “Elogio del horizonte” de uno de los grandes escultores contemporáneos de este país: Eduardo Chillida.

Elogio_del_horizonte_2

A las 20 h. directo del dúo belga Lumisokea. Música de gran virtuosismo y con una estrecha relación con el dub sumado a una la puesta en escena tan recurrente como los focos de luz y la bomba de humo:

A continuación, de nuevo Matin Messier, esta vez presentando una performance más potente aun que la anterior y que justifica la palabra “visual” en el nombre del festival. Esto será otra de las grandes perlas del L.E.V. 2014:

Lo siguiente tendrá también un gran componente visual. El videoartista Herman Kolgen nos presentará un filme repleto de imágenes de una gran sensibilidad. Lo que será un relajante viaje para empezar la segunda noche. La música clásica que acompaña al filme será Different Trains de Steve Reich de 1988:

Después nos desplazaremos a la iglesia pero no definitivamente. Dos conciertos y de nuevo al teatro. El primero de ellos: Las CasCasiotone que presentan en primicia su nuevo álbum d/evolution de inminente publicación en el prestigioso Editions Mego. La música de las asturianas seguro que nos hará volar. Con y sin ayuda del avituallamiento de cada uno:

El segundo, el jovencísimo Koreless. A diferencia del Viernes, la media noche será romántica y ambiental en vez de bruta y ruidosa:

Volveremos al teatro para ver el HD de Atom™. Este hombre se prodiga mucho como para que esto se nos presente como algo novedoso. Será la segunda versión del directo de HD cuando ya lleva un año tocando la tercera. Seguro que si viniera con las bachatas de Señor Coconut sorprendería más. En realidad da igual lo que haga y bajo el nombre que lo firme que siempre lo hace bien:

Comienza la recta final. Rival Consoles será lo más cercano al techno que oiremos. Será el Andy Stott de este año:

Le sigue un Aoki Takamasa completamente renovado. Realmente no parece el mismo de hace unos años. Lo que anteriormente era glitch de ritmos abstractos y asimétricos ahora se ha convertido en una especie de dub-glitch de ritmos monótonos. Para bailar es un cambio a mejor. Para escuchar tengo mis serias dudas:

Para terminar: Vessel, la apuesta menos arriesgada de todo el cartel. Su último álbum titulado “Order of Noise” no tiene nada de noise: se trata de la mezcolanza británica comúnmente llamada Dubstep. Siento decir que Burial solo hay uno, aunque este joven británico, en ocasiones, le imita muy bien:

Las ganas de más, la euforia y la gestión tardía de la borrachera de cada uno harán que a las próximas ediciones no dudemos en repetir.
