Aloardi Solstice Noise Procession

01_Aloardi_prossecion_by_Mihail_Bakalovw

To celebrate the solstice , we design special dresses to dance and walk around the streets.  As part of our dresses we build some circuits that reacts to the sun-light and we mix these sounds with Andean traditional dance music specially distorted  for this occasion. The audience join us with some sound instruments that they bring to play during the celebration. Below some pictures of Aurora, Sajjra & Castillo, the Aloardi clan in metamorphosis some hours before the procession.

“Yesterday evening joined an absolute great event and show in R’dam Noord. First a book presentation by Patricia Pinheiro de Sousa at our printer de Boog followed up by a street parade by artist collective Aloardi (artists from Peru) to celebrate their traditional beginning of summer. They were all dressed up with masks and colorfull dresses…we all had to make sound/music. The walk ended at galerie Mirta DeMare for the finissage of the show Do It With Us by artist who participate in Filmwerkplaats workshop. Around twelve 16mm projection spread all over the galerie. SUPER! I think this is the most exiting show I have seen in a long time” (Robert Hamenlijck)
