REAL - A BARST AUDIOVISUAL EXPERIENCE
During the continuous search for the work of art as conceived by BARST, the collective explores the creative spectrum of both audio and imagery simultaneously, influencing one and other, eventually merging into a whole.
BARST works through strong orchestration resulting from a free and intuitive process. BARST creates works of art which are very organic, but which conceal a long search and a clear vision through it’s well-thought-out conceptual approach
‘REAL’ is the collective’s latest project. An audiovisual experience that is the result of several years of cooperation between artists B. Desmet, N. Verwijk and C. Bernard. As a sonic and cinematic experience ‘REAL’ is centered around the exploration of concepts revolving around a landmark in the stages of human life. To leave behind the cacophony of modern existence and descend into a primal nature. The project and the process of its creation contemplate themes such as transformation, peace, the mind and the search for mankind's natural place in the world.
This work, a union between image and sound, explores what it is to be human, what it means to be real.
Thus the shape-shifter BARST once again takes on a new, interdisciplinary form that shows itself as a surprising culmination of all previously made creations. You don't listen to BARST or watch it, but you experience it. It is a path that you follow to arrive at a different universe, where image, music, body and mind resonate with each other to form an organic whole that lingers long after the experience.
The project will materialize into a double DVD/CD release to be released on October 1 at the 24HDL event.
