L.E.V. 2017

L.E.V.,Also known as the Visual Electronics Laboratory, it is the International Festival of Audiovisual Creation of Gijón. This is a project with more than 10 years of experience that since its inception aims to offer the broadest possible vision of electronic sound creation and its relationship with the visual arts.

L.E.V.It is a festival especially interested in the natural synergy between image and sound, in live action and in new artistic currents that continually emerge at a global level.

Designed and conceived by the Asturian collective Datatrón, it is co-produced by the Government of the Principality of Asturias, the Gijón City Council and LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial.

The Visual Electronics Laboratory distributes its activities year after year in different spaces of the Laboral Ciudad de la Cultura cultural complex, such as the Theater, the old Sports Courts or the LABoral Art Center. In addition, it intervenes in the Atlantic Botanical Garden of Gijón and in various museum spaces in the city center, generating a circuit of unique experiences that brings to the public a selection of the most interesting and avant-garde proposals on the international audiovisual scene.

The L.E.V. It will be held from April 27 to 30, 2017 in the city of Gijón and will feature a program full of risky and innovative proposals that transcend classic formats within the fields of international sound and visual creation.
