The IDEAL Sónar sessions continue

On 16, 17 and 18 September 2021 Sónar at IDEAL opened the world premiere of Koraal – Magma, a new audiovisual show by producer and DJ John Talabot, together with pioneering visual artists Desilence.

Presented in association with We Are Europe, the show was a unique immersive and multi-sensory experience, designed and created specifically for the IDEAL – Centre d’Arts Digitals de Barcelona space.

Over 1,200 people attended the 8 sessions of this first edition of Sónar at IDEAL.

Sónar at IDEAL is a collaboration between Sónar and IDEAL for the production and premiere of immersive shows involving musicians and visual artists. Koraal – Magma was the first in a series of concerts that will take place over the coming months.

For the second instalment of the series, Sónar at IDEAL brings together two luminaries of experimental electronica and alternative pop to perform together in a captivating immersive audio-visual show, The Raül Refree & Pedro Vian feat. Pedro Maia A/V set 

Presented in association with We Are Europe, the show brings together the talents of Raül Refree – a master of composition and gifted collaborator – with Pedro Vian – head of the Modern Obscure Music label – in a visual panorama custom-designed for the space by Pedro Maia, a Portuguese visual artist and regular collaborator with artists such as Vesel and Kevin Martin.

During the performance, the audience will listen to completely new music, inspired by the flow of nature, the uncertainty of the future and the importance of the present. The concept stems from compositions by Pedro Vian which Raül then shapes with improvisations played on prepared piano and positive organ.

This show will be an immersive experience in which electronica, classical instrumentation and analogue images, digitised and treated by visual artist Pedro Maia, will create a totally new parallel world.

The Raül Refree & Pedro Vian feat. Pedro Maia A/V set will be performed live on 7 and 8 October, twice daily, at 20:00 and 22:00. BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE
