On 4 and 5 September, the Kernel Festival took place in Messina, an international event dedicated to the promotion of the artistic languages that use new technologies. The city saw the Cathedral come alive in a stunning show where the “mapping” turned the façade into a bright and animated jewel at night.
On the website kernelfestival.net, you can read: “Kernel is proposed as a carrier of new multidisciplinary synergies between electronic music and sound design, audiovisual mapping, ephemeral architecture, digital and interactive art.
Kernel project is created as a platform for a continuous and dynamic connection aimed at offering opportunities for meeting and exchange between the public, up-and-coming talented people and renowned artists at an international level. In order to offer artists many opportunities to show their work to the public, and so that the public can appreciate research, projects and works from all over the world, Kernel is proposed in different forms and structurally different but complementary events.”
We cannot but be fascinated while waiting for the next show eagerly (because it is a real show) on 25 and 26 September at Desio, in the Brianza area: Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The barber from Seville) played by Giovanni Falzone Contemporary Orchestra at Villa Tittoni. “It is a new interpretation of the classical world where video projections, generated in real time, give birth to an involving and amazing multimedia event, along with the music.”
How cannot you consider the ability to create a new way to engage and excite as a form of art? Just so you can make the public, even the youngest, approach classical music as well as theatre, technology, photography, art direction and sound… an explosion of feelings and life that– once again – the light has contributed to create and spread, democratically, transversally… from 8 years to 80 years. Because even Rossini likes Rossini (Gioachino, of course)!
