STORM OF LIGHT
IMMERSIVE AUDIOVISUAL CONCERT
Alfredo De Stefano and the Desert Philharmonic Orchestra join forces to present a multimedia spectacle offering a unique immersive symphonic-visual experience, featuring live music and world premiere pieces. STORM OF LIGHT showcases the photographic work of artist Alfredo De Stefano, considered one of Mexico's most important contemporary conceptual photographers.
On an 18 x 3 meters LED screen, the artistic work of the Coahuila-based artist spanning over two decades will be projected. Over 200 photographs will illustrate 15 deserts from around the world, including the Sahara in North Africa, Namibia in South Africa, Gobi in Mongolia, Thar in India, Atacama in Chile, Nazca in Peru, Arizona in the USA, Gibson in Australia, the Black Desert in Iceland, the Puna Desert in Argentina, Siloli in Bolivia, and the Mexican deserts of Chihuahua and Sonora.
Under the artistic direction of Natanael Espinoza, the editing of this important photographic collection will be complemented by a concert of Antonio Vivaldi's Four Seasons, with soloists Juan José López Campos from Venezuela and Carlos Suárez Morejón from Cuba as violin soloists. Additionally, the world premiere of the symphonic piece written for this project, Light Storm, by Maestro Obed Cortés from Mexico, who is also the timpanist of the OFDC, will be featured. Also participating is Salvador Alejandro Garza Fishburn, a musician with a degree in Contemporary Production from London, England, and poet Mercedes Luna, winner of the Gilberto Owen National Literature Prize.
Light Storm is a magical and visual journey where the combination of live music, photography, animation, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) make this event a unique sensory experience. Since its premiere in Saltillo, Coahuila in May 2023, STORM OF LIGHT has gained international and national attention for its innovative proposal, especially regarding the use of real-time AI. This concert in San Pedro Garza García, N.L., marks the beginning of a national and international tour, and the visual and technological proposal that the local audience will enjoy will be even more spectacular than before. On this occasion, technology and the author's imagination will merge in surprising ways as we are transported to landscapes and scenarios never seen before.
