Music video clichés, abstract video art conventions and the rigid performance of classical music will be given a shake up with new videos and compositions created in the Musicam Video project. A group of musicians, art music composers and video artists will join forces and fuse video and the art of composition equally and seamlessly together. The results can be seen and heard as new music video art or art music videos.
The cross-artistic Musicam Video project aims to discover the essence of creativity through artist meetings. The artists will meet in clubs and international symposiums to give concerts, research, create videos and to engage in a dialogue across artistic boundaries and with the audiences. The artists will be provided with an international working community, production support and additional training as required.
Invited artists for the cross-artistic cooperation include composer and pianist Maria Kallionpää, composer Markku Klami, flutist Johanna Kärkkäinen, cellist Juho Laitinen, visual artist Arttu Merimaa, composer Aleksander Nowak, visual artist Laura Pawela, guitarist Kimmo Rahunen and visual artist Milja Viita.
Musicam Video is produced by the cross-artistic Poike Association and executive producer Tuuli Penttinen-Lampisuo.
Premieres for the co-created videos and compositions:
- 4 November: Sibelius Museum, Turku
- 2 December: Pori Art Museum
After the Capital of Culture year, the artworks will tour various music and media art events both in Finland and abroad.
