From 27 April to 4th May was the residence UNTIL JAZZ.  developed within the residences AGITlab, based on the identity and culture of electronics, jazz, movement and experimental illustration. The name derives from the Portuguese expression,ATÉ JÁ, that means “see you soon”.

The soul of the project was developed from the sound, physical and visual plasticity of  the artists.

Starting from an approach to the pictorial, sonorous and physical contours of the works of the artists, developed an exploration of their works, accompanied by means such as sound, and the study of the transfiguration of the image.

Through the composition of real-time images, the live body of performers, and through the sounds of jazz, captured and transformed, a subtle and complex experience was projected that  provided a strong sensorial impact for the visitors of the event.

The unique combination of the soundscapes, raised in the context of residence, the plasticity of the bodies, the theorizing of their experiences and their personal beliefs, and the anamorphosis of all, will rise to an original piece, presented at the INCA art incubator in Águeda.
