Raúl Alaejos, Carolina Campos, Félix Pérez-Hita, Marc Vives, with the collaboration of Hidrogenesse, the composers of the Sâlmon’s jingle.

For more than fifteen days Raúl Alaejos, Carolina Campos, Marc Vives and Félix Pérez-Hita, with the collaboration of Hidrogenesse, will live under the same roof at Fabra i Coats, Art Factory. Their gathering will last until the 17th of February, when it will become the kick-off event of the Sâlmon Festival. A prodigious laboratory of unmanageable chaos, a kaleidoscopic project around a single clue: questioning how a television show is made. Visual arts, performance, choreography, video, television or music become inputs for a mixture of disciplines or artistic approaches. In front of a live screen, the audience is called to watch as an unsuspected landscape unfolds.

RAÚL ALAEJOS“In the mornings, working with, I create audiovisual and physical devices in search of new formats in the field of art and communication. In the afternoons we become, a theatre company without actors. At night, all the rest.”
CAROLINA CAMPOS“I was born in Brazil and live in Barcelona. I work in the performing arts, combining creation and research. I’m interested in the intersections between cinema and performance, presence and image. I have completed the independent studies programme (PEI) at the MACBA (2019/20) and since 2012 I have worked with Re.AI (PT) in the investigation of composition in real time.”
FÉLIX PÉREZ-HITA“I studied history of art and philosophy at the University of Barcelona (UB). I was a member of the editorial board of the review Mania (published by the Faculty of Philosophy at the UB) and I have published in Archipiélago. In 2005, with Andrés Hispano, I set up Soy Cámara (a CCCB laboratory), where I created pieces until 2020. In 2012, this time with Arturo Bastón, I organized the Hilomental videological sessions. I am a consultant to the Granollers Panoramic Festival of Cinema and Photography and I have taken part in various projects for television. I have also worked as a teacher and I write cultural reviews whenever I can, in the institutions and publications that allow me to do so.”
MARC VIVES“I was born in Barcelona in 1978. I am an artist and work in the fields of research, teaching, production and management. Between the visual arts and the stage. Whenever I can I sing and swim. I use individual and collective learning strategies to approach my work, with Laia Estruch, Martín Vitaliti, the performance group FueraFuera, lxsqcorrenporahí and”
HIDROGENESSE“Electronic art-rock duo, composers of populist pop songs, producers of romantic-sexual mantras, composers of songs that fill situationist dance floors, interpreters of the mystical-comic genre... Hydrogenesse is Carlos Ballesteros and Genís Segarra. Since 1996, they have recorded albums such as Así se baila el siglo XX, Eres PC/Eres Mac, Gimnàstica passiva, Animalitos, Un dígito binario dudoso and Roma."
