Plastique fantastique

Plastique Fantastique is a collective for temporary architecture that samples the performative possibilities of urban environments. Established in Berlin in 1999, Plastique Fantastique has been influenced by the unique circumstances that made the city a laboratory for temporary spaces. Their interventions change the way we perceive and interact in urban environments.

Marco Canevacci is the leader in chief of Plastique Fantastique and has called Berlin home since 1991. He has established and run clubs and was an active in the music scene of Berlin in the early 90’s. Marco Barotti is the personality behind the emotion maker. A musician, Marco studied at the Academy of Jazz in Siena. Based in Berlin, he designs and conducts his own experiments into tube and hand drums and works regularly in inter-disciplinary teams to intervene in urban space and part of the contemporary music scene in Berlin. www.thebarotti.com Architettura Sonora create immersive spatial audio systems. They specifically design sonic modules that achieve incredible performances either indoor or outside. www.architetturasonora.com The Emotion Maker 2.0 evokes feelings and moods in rapid succession through intimate contact with music. An experimental, inter-disciplinary urban intervention, the temporary performance chamber is home to an interactive sound installation that connects participants to hundreds of music samples prerecorded by 100 different musicians representing their own emotions. Tracks are loaded onto an interactive device that allows visitors to remix the emotions into a composition of their own. The performance is monitored by an algorithm that regulates the new music being created. Once inside the chamber, the interactive concert arouses the emotions and feelings of the musicians in quick succession. To date, the Emotion Maker has brought its intimate, self directed concert experience to the cities of Berlin, Bilbao and London.
