 LUDOTECNIA (AV Live Set)

Ludotecnia is a live audiovisual presentation based, fundamentally, on the use of modified toys. Electromechanical elements, lamps and other devices are sequenced and controlled, being at the same time part of the musical construction and the visual setting. Small cameras capture the actions on the table, allowing the public to participate in what is happening on the "stage". With toys as a bridge, Ludotecnia is presented to audiences of all ages, without compromising or softening its audiovisual proposal. Ludotecnia is a humble tribute to the VHS generation and the Saturday afternoon television movies, full of stop-moth creatures, mad scientists, superpowers and alien invasions.

Ludotecnia has been presented, to date, in more than 25 cities throughout 7 Latin American countries, in festivals and events such as:

  • Festival Digitalia (San Salvador de Bahía - Brasil 2019)

  • MUTEK (Buenos Aires - 2018)
