dada live looping
dada is a journey to spontaneous creation. Starting with a chord, a strum, a hit, a word, an image or a memory, the whole musical-sonic-visual journey unveils for the spectators. The tools? Experimentation, improvisation and the experiences of more than ten years of breathing music, images and sound (and travels, people, cities and so on)
Not only the images and music are conceived at the very moment, also the sounds character of each instrument and the places that they will occupy in the space are subject to the “humor” of the moment.
Each sound and process have its own visual counterpart so the experience is completed by real time generated images along with the music that is being composed. It´s kind of a giant audiovisual instrument and its consequence is a piece that transmutes from show to show.
A kind of spinoff from this project is #dadalive. A weekly live streaming where Juan composes a song in real time and live streams it through his web social media channels like Facebook and Youtube. Some of those live looping sessions then evolve and get recorded, produced and published in 12 hours or less to be featured as songs at #dadalive on SoundCloud.

How do I look?Pics and vids both live and studio
Thanks to the invitation from Anido to perform a live improvisation for their campaign #turiosemuere (your river is dying), I had the oportunity to get back to an old musical idea.

One of those trio times during the #zapadademiercoles jam sessions. Facundito on bass and Andres in the drums…
