[Yasmin_announcements] L.E.V. FESTIVAL, 1st and 2nd of May

L.E.V. (or Laboratorio de Electrónica Visual – Visual Electronics
Laboratory), is the space in which electronic music and visual and
performing arts join as a way of artistic expression aiming at
introducing the audience to a selection of the most interesting local
and international creators - the new talent as well as established artists.

On its third edition, the festival returns to Laboral Ciudad de la
Cultura during May 1st and 2nd 2009. It is designed and conceived by the
asturiano collective Datatrón 0x3F, co-produced by Teatro de la Laboral
together with Laboral Art and Industrial Creation Centre as its main

The first edition had outstanding artistic proposals such as the
audio-visual live sets by Plaid & Bob Jaroc, Alexander Hacke & Danielle
de Picciotto, Ryoichi Kurokawa or Rechenzentrum, live sets by Mouse on
Mars, Bugge Wesseltoft or Apparat and new talent tokens such as Lego my
Ego, Fuss! or .tape. L.E.V. 08 meant the project's consolidation thanks
to proposals such as Kindertotenlieder by Gisèle Vienne, KTL and Dennis
Cooper, Siren by Ray Lee or live performances by M83, Frank
Bretschneider, The Black Dog, Monolake & Deadbeat and Clark, among others.

Aphex Twin returns to Spain after many years without coming over to our
country and he's doing it to show us his latest laptop performance in
L.E.V. 09. Considered as one of the most important and influential
personalities in electronic music, having been surrounded by numerous
legends, with thorough precision in his control of old synths and
creation of new sounds and gifted with one of the most restless and
creative minds in the music scene, today Aphex Twin is still creating
landmarks in the boundaries of the approved music rules.

L.E.V.'s third edition's programme will hold other extremely interesting
works such as Moderat's (Modeselektor + Apparat's joint project with the
visual artists Pfadfinderei) audio-visual live set, who after releasing
a long-waited for album in March on Bptich Control, will offer a select
series of sets on special occasions. L.E.V. will also hold Peter
Greenaway's Tulse Luper Vj Performance or live sets by Isolée, Nathan
Fake, Alva Noto and Byetone. This edition will also have the portuguese
coreographer Rui Horta's latest work together with the band Micro Audio
Waves, live sets by Daedelus, AGF, Kelpe or Kettel, Loss-Layers'
performance, a creation by Fabrice Planquette and A.lter S.essio or
Black out by João Samões, as well as Electric Girl, the new project by
Apostolia Papadamaki from Greece with live music by Blaine Reininger
(from Tuxedomoon).

The Laboratorio de Electrónica Visual (Visual Electronics Laboratory)
will share its activities between five amazing spaces: Laboral's
Theatre, LABoral Art and Industrial Creation Center, the Church and
Asturias' Drama Art School.
