Day and time
Auditorium of Casa Milà
Activity at La Pedrera:
B1N0 & Anna Cornudella / Frank Lucas
We close PedreraArtlab with an exceptional session we are particularly excited about. Forming part of the D’A Film Festival–Barcelona, it features the new sensation on the Barcelona music scene, B1NO, and the talented visual artists Anna Cornudella and Frank Lucas. It is an open-source show where the audience can take part in an incubation, with images and music, projections and screens, sounds and noises, light and shadows.
In a contemporary setting of ones and zeros, B1N0 emerges as the umbilical cord linking the analogue uterus and the embryo of what will become a digital native spectator. It is an open-source show where the audience can take part in an incubation, with images and music, projections and screens, sounds and noises, light and shadows. They submerge themselves in a dissonant, phantasmagorical amniotic fluid. Emili Bosch and Malcus Codolà (the visible heads of B1N0), alongside Anna Cornudella and Frank Lucas, will be our own personal Virgils in this digital pandemonium.
Together, Emili Bosch and Malcus Codolà form b1n0 (pronounced “bino”). The duo, who live in Barcelona, combine elements of experimental electronica, the feel of new-pop and modern, urban sounds: a cocktail of electronica made with acoustic elements, layered synths and precise utilisation of the sonic space. Somewhere between sound engineers and musicians, b1n0 invite us to a cacophony of influences in the era of the post. This project dispenses with a lead vocalist, seeing that as an opportunity for unlimited self-reinvention as it explores the possibilities of the sampler in its own special adventure in sound.
Anna Cornudella (Barcelona, 1991) is a multidisciplinary artist moving between audiovisual expressiveness and paintings. She graduated from ESCAC as an artistic director and so far has worked on theatre sets and as a director of video art projects and pop videos.
A director and scriptwriter interested in working around the edges of audiovisual, where he runs up against music, the visual arts, architecture, fashion, etc. He is the cofounder of Japónica Films, an audiovisual nursery, where he works as head of development. As a film-maker, his work always revolves around an exploration of the limits and possibilities of contemporary audiovisual art, obsessed as he is with the way it maintains a dialogue with the world around it.
