STRENGTH OF THE INITIATIVE
The desire and an always increasingly visceral need of mankind to finally become an active protagonist.
At the heart of the show is the common man in its uniqueness and originality. The Man and his most real and profound human dimension are the point of departure and arrival, under the sign of a new humanism. The furthermost authentic expressions of the face and of the human voice transforms the meaning of the new mobile technologies in a modern form of popular art.
A global event of Art-Jazz and contemporary photography in the name of Mobile Art.
Pollock Project is the musical ensemble founded by Marco Testoni. A visionary musical project built on the aesthetics’ strength of the Art-Jazz: a surprising and evocative mix of contemporary jazz, electronic music and visual arts. With 3 albums already released, the band has participated to numerous jazz festivals, visual and digital art events and national radios.
