HAPPENINGS 5th edition presents actions by Cadu, O Grivo and Romano

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

Casa França-Brasil is holding for this weekend the 5th edition of HAPPENINGS, project that this year will explore sound experimentations, opposing noise and silence in live performances. Winner of PIPA 2013, Cadu, O Grivo and Romano will take part in this year’s edition.

Casa França-Brasil’s hall will be occupied by circle shaped stages for 360º performances by ten sound artists that will compose a repertoire with multiple references, from electronic textures to eletro-acoustic experimentations, noise, drone and transversal aspects of rock, punk, jazz and classical music. Inspirations that go beyond the songs by artists such as Kraftwerk, Xenakis, Aphex Twin, John Cage, Luigi Russoloa Arto Lindsay, isolated or overlapped, contributing for a new atonal contemporary music. In 2015, the main investigation of the performances goes by the improvise, the randomness and indeterminate actions.

Inside the galleries, opposing to the sound performances, a refuge in reached on the exposed artworks by O Grivo, that presents “57 nós” [“57 knots”], from 2014, and Cadu, who presents “Ventre de Baleia” [“Whale Womb”], from 2015.

For the last days, sonatas by Cage and other avant garde classic musicians will be played on the piano. On the same day, a book that documents the actions performed at HAPPENINGS from 2010 to 2013 will be launched, followed up by a chat with the art critic and curator Daniela Labra. To celebrate the closing party, Wladimir Gasper, alter ego for Pedro Bernardes, will perform live, transforming the Casa França-Brasil’ space into a dance floor.
