August 14 //NOASS – second day of the festival

The second day of the festival ‘Waterpieces’ will be opened by Laura Gozlan’s performance, which will take place in the floating arts centre ‘NOASS’. The piece is closely connected with the video artwork program created by Marie Cantos, which is dedicated to the metaphorical and symbolical meaning of ships and ports: a link to a new, unknown world, real or imaginary journeys, which signifies both the discovery of new horizons and the end of life. However, the evening will continue with an audio visual performance by the artist and composer Jachin Pousson (USA) and the saxophone player Arvydas Kazlauskas (LT). The music of the performance takes the form of an improvisation between a baritone saxophone, electric guitar and electronics, which is complemented with a video projection of sound and vibration visualization.  DJ Mārtiņš Ratniks will close the evening.
