Sorry for any crosspostings


Digicult is proud to introduce the artwork "Dark Star", the new stunning
Live Cinema project of the Italian artists Mylicon/en, part of the Digimade
art agency.


Dark Star is a Mylicon/En project dedicated to the directorial debut of John
Carpenter. One single location, crazy special effect and 4 actors for a
peculiar travel into deep space and a reflection on the relation between man
and thecnologies. Mylicon/en likes to play on the same coordinates: deep
space and concrete landscape depicted by "hand made" effects. Mylicon/en's
Dark Star is a live performance in wich we there is a very strong dialogue
between the digital sounds, captured and realaborated live by laptop and
sampler, and the live video is created with no video mixer, no laptop, no
digital filter. As usual we created visual track during a live performance
using just a videocamera connected directly with the video projector.


Lino Greco (visual) and Daniela Cattivelli (sound) created Mylicon/En in
2002. Mylicon/EN is a duo involved in experimental and alternative ways of
conceiving audio-video live act, recovering performativity and concreteness
through the use of analogical and mechanical devices in the production of
images. Their works focus on the interaction between analog or mechanical
devices with the digital realm. Visual texture is manipulated according to
sound. During their improvisations and creation sessions they use many
different common objects like glasses, plastics, water etc. to create sound
and images. As multidisciplinary project, Mylicon/En performs in events of
different kinds: from electronic music festivals to vijng festivals, from
art galleries to performing arts festivals. Mylicon/En released also videos
presented in various festivals worldwide.


Digimade is the Digicult's art-agency focused on Audiovisual Art & Design,
directed by the art critic and curator Marco Mancuso. Digimade is working
with Italian artists to develop and deliver their Audiovisual projects
across the world, with Live Media concerts, Live Cinema experiments,
Audiovisual environmental installations and videos.
