LPM – Live Performers Meeting
Born in 2004, with the aim to answer to the need for creating a space-temporal referential field where to meet, know each other and share vjing related experiences, LPM is now an international meeting dedicated to artists, professionals and passionates of veejaying, visual and live video performance.
The event features a full programme of live video performances open to the public, applied in combination with the most varied forms of artistic expression, and a number of initiatives particularly for guests of the meeting.
The “On” area allows the audience to attend the different applications in live video through the performances of artists and groups from the international scene, joined by a single great passion for video, performance and above all “Live”. From midnight onwards beginning the VJclash, in which video artists perform free from video consolle made available, with many projectors and monitors.
The “Off” area, aimed at the Meeting, is an occasion of confrontation between vj and video artists working in the themes of Live Video Performance and is conceived as a separate area, frequented mainly by “insiders” with a program that alternates spaces meeting, workshops and showcase projects and products.
LPM is a space open to freedom of expression, research and experimentation; the programme flexibility, the openness to new members and contributions, the freedom to participate and the opportunity to perform during the event, are an intrinsic characteristic.
LPM consider the experimentation a cornerstone of its ideology, and all the recovered funds are therefore allocated to finding the most desirable and innovative technologies to support the event and the research in the live visual field.
The kinship of ideals and the common ideological roots, allowed LPM to become part of AVIT network, whose aim is the enhancement and promotion of veejaying culture by organizing events worldwide
