PALAZZO RE ENZO - BOLOGNA
25-27 JANUARY 2007

Netmage 07, an international festival with the aim of exploring media innovation in the context of electronic arts, will take place in its seventh edition in Bologna from January 25th to 27th, and in Ferrara on February 2nd 2007.

Netmage 07, focusing on multi-media design, live media acts and cutting-edge style, will work as a meeting point for video-makers, multi-media and visual artists, musicians and performers from Europe, South and North America, Australia and Japan. In its ongoing investigation, Netmage 07 will present some of the latest trends in live media. Together with research on essential aspects of perception and the intersection of visual and acoustic phenomena, the festival will introduce a very wide range of approaches.

The festival, held in the historical castle of Palazzo Re Enzo in Bologna, will include live-cinema, performances, mixed media, installations and a series of special events featuring international guests performing live electronic music along with an innovative use of images. A second part of the festival, Sound Dissection, dedicated to the anatomy of sound, will take place at the Anatomical Theatre of Ferrara.
