Вчера, 29 ого августа в баре Up in Smoke в старой Риге прошло первое, открывающее серию, мероприятие от FILTERED. В небольшом, но уютном месте, собрались ценители фотографии и живой музыки.

Выставка расположилась на одной из стен небольшой комнаты. 20 фотографий разных фотографов, которые так или иначе связаны с Фильтром.

Photo Exhibition

В фото выставке учавствовали: Aleksey Zadoya, Vladlena Sevelova, Oskars Cirsis, Linda Brīnums, Olga Kotovskaya, Katri Bc, Artuurs, Raitis Biezais, Kristīne Ļašenko.

Большинство фотографов уже есть на Фильтре и можно про них прочитать пройдя по ссылке.  Остальные появятся здесь в скором времени.

Тем, кто посетил наше первое мероприятие и оставался там до конца (с 17:00 до 22:00), посчастливилось услышать большое разнообразие групп и солистов, которые согласились сыграть на нашем концерте.

Первым, взяв на себя все сложности по разогреву разномастной публики, выступал Глеб. По совместительству один из основателей Фильтра. Глеб пишет музыку и песни сам. Играет один.

Gleb

Солист Паша, солист Марик, солист Витя, и очень забавный аккордеонист, Сава, который играл с ними вместе. И конечно А. Александров.

Baltā nakts

August 27, 2009

balta naktss

Open : 12 and 13 september

Mūsdienu kultūras forums “Baltā nakts 2009” notiks naktī no 12. uz 13. septembri, turpinot iepriekšējo forumu tradīcijas un piedāvājot programmu, kas ietver vairāk nekā 19 teātra, mūzikas, filmas, kustības un vizuālās mākslas projektus.

“Baltās nakts 2009” pasākumi tiks organizēti ap 6. tramvaja līniju, kas būs gan foruma navigācijas ass, gan iespēja ērti pārvietoties. Plānotā programma iezīmē vienu no pilsētas centrālajām asīm, kas savieno vairākus aktīvus spontānas radošās izpausmes punktus – Spīķerus un VEF korpusus, K. Barona ielu un tās apkārtni. “Baltās nakts” teritorijā iekļauta arī galerija “Noass”, RIXC mediju centrs, “Rīgas mākslas telpa”, koncertzāle AVE SOL un Anglikāņu baznīca. “Baltās nakts” ietvaros norisināsies arī virkne paralēlo pasākumu citās kultūras institūcijās.

Šīs “Baltās nakts” vadmotīvs ir Latvijas multimediju patriarha Hardija Lediņa uzdotais jautājums: “Tagad acis atveriet, kur jūs esat, kā jums šķiet?” Tas plašu sabiedrības daļu vilina ļauties “Baltās nakts” notikumiem, lai meklētu atbildi. “Baltā nakts” vedina cilvēkus 365 gada dienām pievienot vienu nakti, kurā nedrīkst gulēt, jāatver acis un jāgūst jauna pieredze.

PROGRAM:

  • BolaBellamátic

VENUE: Blaumaņa iela 32, Maskavas iela 12/1(Spīķeri), Stabu iela 14, Ūnijas iela 4 (VEF) TIME: 19:00-1:00

BolaBellamátic is a project developed by La Más Bella, an artistic collective of two people from Madrid (Spain). La Más Bella is going to install four BolaBellamátic   machines in Riga in four different public spaces for the White Night, and invite some artists, both Spanish and Latvian, to make pieces of art to be sold into a plastic ball at a very cheap price: 1 lat.

VENUE: 6.tramvaja maršruts, Ropažu iela – Stacijas laukums TIME: 20:00-3:00

  • Power-independent poetry
VENUE: Stabu iela 14 TIME: 20:00–02:00

Text-group “Orbīta”, following their established route of multimedial search, have come up with a simple installation. Several exotic-looking self-made “fitness bikes” (the design of which has had to do with “The Riders of the Apocalypse”) are equipped with small slide projectors instead of lamps and with dynamo power generators. Each projector shows a few lines and altogether they create a projection of a poem.

This project intends to involve the public in active participation, because only when “riding” all bikes simultaneously the whole piece of poetry can be read. Also the brightness of the image directly depends on the energy input of the spectator-reader. Official website

  • The whole world in one glance
VENUE: Dirty Deal Expo, Maskavas iela 12/2 TIME: 20:00–03:00

th_6ceeaf4dce11bb40e30a68a0ae4a7cee_1251156948lomo[1]This White Night culture node Dirty Deal in collaboration with Baltic Lomography association will present the largest lomography* exhibition in Latvia so far – lomo wall „The whole world in one glance”.

VENUE: Kr. Barona iela (adrese tiks precizēta) TIME: 21:00–02:00

During the night from September 12th to 13th one of the empty shop display windows on Krišjāņa Barona street will come alive, helped by the Dirty Deal creative team in collaboration with the Finnish videoartist group Vixen and experimental electronic music artists from Riga.

The video material to be projected in the display windows will be created out of material shot in Riga city surroundings and live feed from surveillance cameras positioned in the display windows, and all that mixed with a previously produced video. The video projection will be a remixed reflection of the surrounding urban spaces, commenting on the city and trying to persuade passers-by to take a different look at the sights seen in the city every day. The musicians will also employ a similar technique – sounds will be recorded on the spot, in the streets framing the centre of Riga, and mixed with existing audio material.

th_6ceeaf4dce11bb40e30a68a0ae4a7cee_1251156851lebal[1]Le Bal

1983, Italy, France, Algeria. Directed by Ettore Scola

112″

Academy Award nomination for best foreign language film, Caesar award and a whole list of other acknowledgments have established Le Bal by Ettore Scola among the unforgettable treasures of world cinema. In 1983 critics were literally raving about the grace and charm of this filma.

The ball takes place in an imaginary ballroom in Paris where a story in dancing, told by mimes, takes the spectators through time. Without uttering as much as a single word, it tells profoundly much about the eternal search for love, and by changing the characters, the film travels in time. The shrewd social observations in the ballroom allows the spectators to live through 50 years of French culture from the 1930ies to the 1980ies. Le Bal brings you superb acting, music and a colourful feeling of the era. A surprise after the screening – let’s dance together!

  • The Gospel of Noise

  • Erik Hobijn’s “Chemistry bar”
VENUE: RIXC Mediju telpa, 11. Novembra krastmala 35, (ieeja no Minsterejas ielas). TIME: 20:00–02:00

th_6ceeaf4dce11bb40e30a68a0ae4a7cee_1251298688rixc[1]RIXC Media space (11. novembra krastmala 35) will house an installation-performance by the Dutch artist Erik Hobijn “Chemistry bar”. The surrounding setting will be created by RIXC artist group. “Chemistry bar” is made out of actual elements and materials of a bar and it functions as a regular bar (you can have a drink here), but it looks quite extraordinary (with its test-tubes, alembics, emphasized hyperreality and ritual atmosphere it rather resembles a theatrical laboratory, Frankenstein style). The artist himself describes it: “”Chemistry bar” is not a poetic artistic message, neither a representation of reality. It is not a theoretical laboratory but a real one – we serve fuming cocktails in test-tubes, experimenting with drinks and the audience.”

  • Piggyback
VENUE: Bastejkalns TIME: 22:00–02:00
Performance-installation at Bastejkalns with circus, object theatre and street theatre artists from different countries. Seven stages built throughout the beautiful park terrain, featuring circus sketches and short performances without words. Each performance takes place in a different spot in the park and is repeated several times during the White Night, thus the spectators can watch all of them within a few hours. This event is intended for the whole family. More information on artists will follow.
