Creation of visual narratives in real time and video mixing in synchrony with the music and according with artistic performances. The clips used have been created with different techniques and tools like video cameras, mobile videos, pictures, animations and live generative images.

The set is characterized by the use of high-contrast and acid colors addressing urban topics, architectural re-invention of public spaces that have been forgotten and abstract themes inspired on stencil, shapes and some 8-bit culture images.

The first objective of using high contrast is to rescue the pixels and textures of the 3gp formats and webcam, and thus to promote the use of new video and narrative languages achieved with mobile devices or household tools. The second one is to re-invent and transform conventional architectural or historic areas of the city into attractive visual pieces.

The communication intention takes as its starting point the particular traditional areas of electronic music and rave culture, and leisure recreational sites such as dance floors, but aims to involve unconventional spaces (galleries, squares, public streets, neighborhoods) in a cultural context, promoting access and ownership of such visual artists to different communities.
