From 24 to 27th of November, artists from a dozen of countries will meet at the PIKSEL International Festival in Bergen. Throughout concerts, installations, performances, workshops and presentations, artists will share different ways to look at our marine environment.
Artists struggle to make their own instruments, even if commercial brands compete to give the best features to the sound market, artists have proved to be more demanding. When this happens many of them start creating their own instruments, and share their findings with other musicians at international venues. This is what Piksel is about, an unique festival which requires artists to use only free technologies and open hardware and software to make their live shows.
From 24th to 27th of November, Piksel presents at Bergen the most outstanding audiovisual international performers devoted to this experimental scene. Hosted in several well known Bergen venues (Landmark, BAS), Piksel seeks to incorporate every year new spaces to catch up the Bergen spirit. This year that place is THE MILL. Situated at the end of the bay, this industrial building will open its doors to held the art exhibition and the Saturday night concerts. From 9pm to 3 am.
HALLOGENERATOR, ALGORAVE and Sista Piksel party will close the night events.
