A feast of pure Colour, Motion and Sound. Non-representational Art takes the lead at the first edition of Reykjavík Visual Music – Punto y Raya Festival, which will take place from January 30th to February 2nd 2014 at HARPA, the Reykjavík Concert Hall, and Listasafn Reykjavíkur, the Reykjavík Art Museum (Iceland).

The programme features live performances by major artists like Ryoji Ikeda and Ryoichi Kurokawa; specially commissioned opening concerts by Bret Battey + Hugi Guðmundsson & Sigurður Guðjónsson + Anna Þorvaldsdóttir; guest Austrian and Polish Film panoramas, and the selected works in the international live set & short-film Competitions, which brought together nearly 500 artists from 46 countries.

Born from a joint effort between RCVM (Reykjavík Center for Visual Music – Iceland) and Punto y Raya(Dot&Line Festival in Spain, now in its fifth edition), the Reykjavík Visual Music – Punto y Raya Festival invites all audiences to leave preconceptions behind and give in to the overwhelming power of pure artistic expression, in what promises to be the greatest event in the history of abstract live-cinema and film.

Parallel activities include the Cadences of Line and Color exhibit at Listasafn Reykjavíkur (February 1st to April 13th) and the 2014 Academy programme, comprising workshops open to local students and general audiences, and tutored by renowned professionals in the field.

The festival is also collaborating with Dark Music Days for the opening concert.
