NOSTOC / ES
Nostoc is a duo formed in 2016 by Mateo Mena and Laura Iturralde. Investigating how science relates to art and how human beings relate to nature, they combine sound, scenographic, visual and light materials, trying to expand the limits of the conventional concert. His first proposal, ‘Taxon’, incorporates visual and scenographic elements in an electronic musical frame. Based on the evolution of different organisms and elements present in nature, Nostoc use “structure” as a central element of the audiovisual discourse of this piece. It combines analogical electronic music with visuals based on the manipulation of materials in real time, looking for an intermediate point between the concert and the performative installation.
