Pedro Maia (PT, visuals)

Pedro Maia is a Portuguese filmmaker based in Berlin who focuses on Analogue Cinema. He presents his work around the world and has been exhibited in several galleries and film festivals. He currently makes experimental music videos and live audiovisual performances in collaboration with major musicians of the electronic, experimental and minimal music scene such as Craig Leon, Vessel (featured at Lunchmeat Festival 2015), Shackleton, Svreca and Demdike Stare. By assembling and manipulating in live analogue footage such as Super 8 film, he creates raw and powerful atmospheres that extend the music performance and immerse the audience in his visual aesthetic. His collaborative shows have been featured in international festivals such as Unsound, Berlin Atonal, Mutek, Volt or Sonár.

The Swedish duo of SHXCXCHCXSH presented their less club-oriented and more atmospheric work live for the first time during last year's Unsound Festival in Krakow, accompanied by visuals by Portuguese experimental filmmaker Pedro Maia, who focuses mainly on black-and-white analogue film. After a few other collaborative European live shows made during the last year, they will now present their special A/V project also to the Czech audience. Pedro Maia will support SHXCXCHCXSH's live music with images from old, 16mm celluloid films with all of the pros and cons of this type of medium, taking the viewer back to the very raw beginnings of cinema when light and movement played the main role in the visual experience.
