About dada live looping
dada is a journey to spontaneous composition. Starting with a chord, a strum, a hit, a word, an image or a memory, the whole musical-sonic-visual journey unveils for the spectators.
The tools? Live looping, experimentation, improvisation and the experiences of more than ten years of breathing music, images and sound (and travels, people, cities and so on).
The goal of dada performance is to let the audience dive into an ongoing creative process. Juan starts with an empty canvas, maybe is him who throws the first idea or the public or a noise background.
The challenge is to keep an open mind and turn anything into music. As a result of this process a big world of sounds in layers and different colors and textures are created in an constant conversation.
That´s where the real time motion graphics have a greater utility, it reflects whats happening with the music and can also influence the out come.
