Audiotravellings, polaroids and sonorous novels

Electronics, experimentation and soundtracks… Electronic music working as the narrative element. Interacting with both image and scenery or just by itself, as a generator of invisible images, suggested and finally moulded into shape through their own sound. On 2009 Experimentaclub dedicates a good part of its program to the work of artists whose work has a marked narrative intention. As sonorous photographers, artists such as the British Pram or Pan.American (Mark Nelson, USA) transmit novels/postcards/films/portraits through their compositions. These are sometimes conceived with the complicity of the visuals and in other occasions, they arise from the simple, barely suggested, evocation.

In that way, covered with photograms and video, with scenes and movement, little B movie stories transformed into sound, is how this ninth edition of Experimentaclub presents itself. It will maintain as always its additional plus of risk and experimentation. Besides the already mentioned Pram and Pan.American, we also have to highlight the presence of Wolf Eyes and Fuck Buttons: noisy projects drenched in high tension and sonorous subversion. And the performance of an artist with the experience of Charles Hayward, ex-member of This Heat and Massacre. Next to them, Zombie Zombie (France), Sergi Jordà (the creator of the reactable offering one of the scarce live apparitions of this electronic instrument), Arbol + Solu presenting "Kaamos", the Colombian Ricardo Arias or the Mexican Manuel Rocha Iturbide. And lastly, two national artists, Carlos Suárez and Miguel A García, and a first approach to an unknown here Arabian electronic scene, by the hand of the Egyptian artist Mahmoud Refat.

Finally a space for words and divulgation with a program rich in workshops, chats, conferences and the exhibition of the video program Resonancias Magnéticas (Magnetic Resonances). The two workshops, conducted by Miguel Marín (Arbol) and Jaime Munárriz, will be centred on the overlapping of electronic music with films and set design, linking them with the main theme of Exp'09.
