L.E.V. Matadero comes back with the best visual electronic, immersive experiences and to travel to a new virtual environment
- For the second year in a row, Matadero Madrid organizes L.E.V. Matadero Festival of Visual Electronica and Immersive Experiences, a key event in Madrid with the most avant-garde, experimental side of audiovisual creations, electronic music and art created with digital tools.
- The Festival is a showcase of unique experiences of virtual reality, augmented reality, interactive fictions and new digital environments, many of them of recent creation.
- The Festival goes beyond the Matadero facilities to land in other public spaces from Madrid, and now it also has its own virtual planet: a new online environment of programming and creation
- The Festival will host artists such as Laurie Anderson, Hsin-Chien Huang and Claudia Maté. We will also premiere the first virtual reality project by film director Darren Aronofski with Eliza McNitt, plus works related to big names from the international sound creation scene, such as Biosphere, Sigur Ros, and Matthew Herbert.
Matadero Madrid, the contemporary creation center belonging to the Government Department of Culture, Tourism and Sports, and managed by Madrid Destino, presents this new L.E.V. Matadero Festival. The Festival of Visual Electronica and Immersive Experiences, produced by Matadero Madrid and Cineteca Madrid and directed by Datatrón platform, will take place between September 24 and 27, 2020.
In 2019 a new festival was born in Madrid. After a long history in Gijón, L.E.V. broadened the scope to reach the capital city thanks to Matadero, in order to showcase an extensive lineup which explores the forefront of contemporary digital creativity. In 2020, L.E.V. Matadero retains its full ambition and experimental vision, adapted to these current times and following the new health and hygiene rules. During four days, the Festival will combine on-site activities and new shows specifically created for a digital environment to showcase new experiences in the fields of audiovisual creation, electronica and art created with digital tools.
With this effort, Matadero strengthens its support to national creations and its international focus by showing in Madrid the art of Laurie Anderson, Hsin-Chien Huang, and Claudia Maté; the very first virtual reality project by film director Darren Aronofski with Eliza McNitt, plus works related to big names from the international sound creation scene, such as Biosphere, Sigur Ros, and Matthew Herbert.
