Besides addressing the intersection between the music and the audiovisual sectors from a professional perspective at PrimaveraPro, On-Screen will offer the general public a number of activities that show the harmonious relationship between both sectors as an integral part of Primavera al Raval free activities.
Among these activities there will be a discussion between Jaume Balagueró (filmmaker), Nacho Cerdà (Phenomena) and Ángel Sala (Director of the Sitges Film Festival) about the artistic career of John Carpenter, who will be performing at Primavera Sound 2016, and a highly entertaining session led by creative tandems formed by producers and national music artists amongst whom will of J.A. Bayona, Lyona, Kike Maïllo, Luis Cerveró, Sergi Pérez and Roger Guàrdia.
The presentation of the video art work “Wonders” by Carles Congost (award winner at Loop festival) is worth a special mention. Also, as an essential complement to the weekend of the 4th and 5th June and thanks to In-Edit there will be screenings of documentaries about Radiohead (“Meeting People Is Easy”), LCD Soundsystem (“Shut Up and Play the Hits”) and Psychic TV (“The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye”), all of whom will be performing at Primavera Sound 2016.
In parallel, the Xcèntric Archive of the CCCB –open to the public and free– will become a playlist station, where over five days (from 1st to 5th June) a selection of interactive and 360º music videos will be shown, along with a sample of the work of Walter Stern, of the professionals from the session “Creative Tandems” and from the VICE catalogue.
