How do time, space and concentration of human beings affect the development of individuals? How do they interact in our modern cities, with their constantly changing communities?
A documentary presented in a different way. The first phase of the project took place in Bucharest in April 2010 and involved a live session mixing music and video. The second was in Florence in May 2010 and consisted of a video installation with the clips from the live jam session performance in Bucharest and faces of people from Florence. The third step, developed in Cologne and Remscheid in August 2010, included a new event which opposed traffic to natural sounds and images from the forest around Remscheid Academy. The fourth step was again a study of city sounds and images, this time from Barcelona: the music, fully composed from noises recorded on the streets, was presented in September in a quadriphonic sound installation at Café l’Occità in Vic in the frame of the Mercat de Musica Viva. In Pecs, in October, an audio-video installation bridging between East and West, between the video from Bucharest and the audio from Barcelona, was presented in the fascinating courtyard of VeloSophie.
Back in Bucharest after one year, in April 2011, About Traffic has been presented in form of a jam-like live performance transmitting strong feelings and emotions. In this same form it will be presented in Florence for Fabbrica Europa 2011, with sounds and images from all the cities involved.
