Crossing Mediums

THE CROSSING MEDIUMS - SAGA

Experimental on-going Physical Movement Film and Live Show project

"In the experimental Short Film an Live Format the dancer or the physically moving artist

interpretes the composed musical piece to the audience via visual media.

The format is based on Synesthesia where the individual's senses are creating mixed sensory experiences."

"Crossing Mediums - The Beginning" with Aldina Topcagic - teasers

The idea was created by Graak 2012 while she worked in London as a Producer producing live Broadcasts online and listening to music. She received a private message on chat from her manager saying "we really love your voice, but it's a little hard to concentrate when you are tapping rhythm all the time with your feet".

She had no idea the music had totally taken over her. Soon she started to explore into the idea of how the music affects individual, and eventually found a respons for it all: Synesthesia. Soon the different elements started to fly in: Graak wanted to show the world what she could feel and see in music.

-Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which a person experiences "crossed" responses to stimuli. It occurs when stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway (e.g., hearing) leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway (e.g., vision). About 5 percent of the population has synesthesia

"CROSSING MEDIUMS - THE BERGINNING" AND LIVE PERFORMANCE

"Crossing Mediums - the Beginning"

"Crossing Mediums - the Beginning" had its preview at the "Crossing Arts" exhibition in Graz Austria

https://www.artalive.at/exhibition-crossing-arts/

The combined mixed media arts exhibition was the brainchild of Aldina Michelle Topcagic and Rigulio Graak. The artists met orginally in Berlin at Graak's Solo Exhibition summer 2016, when the dancer by sudden walked in and introduced herself. In few days time the artists were on full creation with the "Timeless in Space - Berlin" with live dance intervention by Aldina Topcagic and Claudia Iglesias Ungo at the exhibition space photographed by Rigulio Graak.


"Timeless in Space" is Aldina's lifework and passion, a contemporary live dance installation

The artists put together the "Art Alive Kulturverein" arts association and Graak invited Aldina to Helsinki to perform the first part of the "Crossing Mediums" saga. The artists thought to create also the "Timeless in Space - Helsinki", which Graak produces at the "Musiikkitalo" in Helsinki.


The "Crossing Arts" exhibition got its name after the "Crossing Mediums". Originally the exhibition was to have the "Timeless in Space" Global photographed performances exhibited with the live dance intervention with some of the dancers. But after the Crossing Mediums idea was proposed, the exhibition expanced to have also the extra video installation, the original painted painting previewed and the danced "Crossing Mediums" live performance.


The "Crossing Arts" exhibition was succesfully produced and realised by Aldina Topcagic.
