Day and time
Activity at La Pedrera:
What if we could hear and see the soundtrack to a short film programme performed live? And what if we could also see who was voicing the characters? All this and much more can be found in a show for all ages, where you can enjoy magical fables and emotional messages in a film concert format. Josep Maria Baldomà has created the soundtrack for this session with a selection of seven short films from MODIband. A magical session, full of musical sounds and a wide range of tones, in which the musicians will voice the short film characters live.
Running time: 45 min. Session recommended for anyone over the age of two.
