Open Call LMDP7 Festival Winners with
the performance SALT ITINERARY.

Miguel Azguime , artist of Miso Music Company (Portugal – LISBON), will present SALT ITINERARY,his multimedia opera winner of the Open Call LMDP7 FESTIVAL 2020.
Salt Itinerary multimedia opera transcends theatrical and music conventions, reflecting on Art and Madness, it revolves around languages, words as meaning and words as sound.
Live audio and video electronic processing and diffusion of the voice, poetry, gestures, music and drawings, creates a polyphony of senses and a counterpoint of meanings.
Molding sounds, lights, pictures and movements as if being drawn, painted or carved, Salt Itinerary is a powerful, engaging and challenging combination of music and drama by one performer that shapes new grounds in electronic music and breaks boundaries between music, theatre, opera.
The multimedia opera Salt Itinerary is the end result of a creative project on writing: on musical writing, poetic writing, the gestural writing of the musician/actor and of his own image, in which the voice is the extension of the body and of the thought of the poet. Here, then, is the symbiosis between the essence of the word and the evolution of the Being, presented in the form of a new dramaturgy called Electroacoustic Opera. “
Salt Itinerary, by Miguel Azguime, is an example of the intermedia hybridity made possible by current digital technology.
