February 2007

“Mediaterrae Vol.1 – Irpinia Electronic Landscape” is a project that aims either at a cultural and territorial promotion and at an audio /video production. The event is produced by Gal Verde Irpinia in collaboration with Media Terrae film commission.
Conceived as a yearly meeting where the art of audio/video production is the main focus, MediaTerrae is a project created in order to offer for each year new topics, new territorial visions, new volumes.
Its first edition sees the creation of a residence project, a live event and finally the production of a DVD.

Fourteen international artists were selected and hosted in Irpinia for a period of five days (from the 19th to the 23rd February). The residential project aimed at the constitution of a creative base among the selected artists which was the starting point for the production of seven audio/video tracks that were finally part of the “MediaTerrae Vol.1 – Irpinia Electronic Landscape” dvd, including a documentary film.

This dvd was produced and freely distributed (10.000 circulation copies) with the July-August issue of the magazine Blow-Up.
The participants has spent few days in the little town of Montemarano during its suggestive and peculiar carnival, while MediaTerrae Crew was following the artist in order to facilitate the video, audio and text documentation of the carnival itself, necessary to the later audio and video productions.


artistic co-direction of the project: Leandro Pisano
