Amidst the electrifying ambiance of the Amsterdam Dance Event on October 20th, Pandelis Diamantides will present his mesmerizing audiovisual work, Παλμός – which translates to 'pulse' or 'heartbeat' in Greek. Since the collection’s release on Sedition last year and fresh from its awe-inspiring premiere at the Conflux Festival in Rotterdam, Παλμός has left an indelible mark on all who've encountered its rhythmic embrace.
Παλμός is deeply rooted in Diamantides' personal introspection during the isolation of the pandemic. By capturing the cadence of his own heartbeat and breath rhythm during the tumultuous days of COVID-19, he crafts a narrative that transcends personal boundaries to echo the collective human experience. It’s a piece that encapsulates the essence of connection, even when surrounded by walls of solitude.
Diamantides' unique approach to merging data and art is exemplified in this collection. Utilizing bespoke software, he transforms the raw essence of vibrations and cardiac rhythms into an enthralling audiovisual masterpiece. This innovative exploration illuminates how our internal dynamics resonate in response to thoughts, emotions, and the world around us.
As we approach the Amsterdam Dance Event, the anticipation grows not just for music aficionados but for art enthusiasts eager to delve deep into a multisensory spectacle. Alongside artists like Nuno Mika and Anecoica Studio, Diamantides' Παλμός is set to be a beacon where art and technology harmoniously converge.
