Decameron: a smartphone experiment


João Bettencourt Bacelar. The New Art Fest ’17. Opening. Decameron concert.

The most difficult thing is to have a fresh new idea. When one gets it, then one can evolve it to perfection.

Decameron’s smartphone concert @ the opening of The New Art Fest ’17 was announced by the festival’s curator (me) in Portuguese. Then Emanuel Pimenta took the lead of this little jump into the unknown. It is so good to feel art as what it should always be: a free act of creation. Not one more art washing protocol.

I can imagine from this experience an entire line of musical events using smartphones connected to the world and locally amplified by audiovisual setups.

Call it IoP – Internet of People
