Located in The Hall
The Music+Cinema ritual of SACRED+S is an experiment in between an improvised film created on the spot, a musical experience welcoming local participants, and a research into new forms of ceremonies
Based on the films and music recordings of his own label Petites Planètes http://petitesplanetes.earth/, Moon develop a unique method to create a site-specific experience engaging the bodies of the spectators into a deeply organic and sensorial relationship to hybrid art forms, exploring further into the realm of 'experimental-ethnography'
Opening the doors of perception towards an idea of trans-cinema, SACRED+S is the result of years of researches around the world amongst human communities & the sacred, its music and its modified states of consciousness - developing it further to plant the seeds for future forms of celebrations of life and the invisible.
Dubbed 'the re-inventor of the music video' by the New York Times, born in the digital and internet age, Vincent was the main director of the ‘Take Away Shows’ of La Blogothèque. The online project of music films on indie-rock band and other famous musicians, like R.E.M, Tom Jones or Arcade Fire, revolutionized the concept of music video and the way of filming music in the entire world. Since 2009, Moon dedicates himself to his nomadic label, la Collection Petites Planètes. Crossing the world, his camera and computer in his backpack, making ethnographic-experimental films in an independent way, recording traditional and sacred music, religious and shamanic rituals, then sharing it all for free on internet, under a Creative Commons licence.
