Holger Beier at Virada Cultural 2010 in São Paulo

German DJ Holger Beier will be part of "de mi barrio a tu barrio" - playing a DJ-set in every country and inviting local DJ's and bands to join in.

Holger gained fame as a producer for the "Mexican Institute of Sound" (Instituto Mexicano del Sonido) and from his work in Berlin and São Paulo. Check out the video of one of his gigs last year at Virada Cultural 2010 in
São Paulo: The "Sacada Da Virada" featured Holger with a bunch of friends DJing, accompanied by video projections on one of the most spectacular places in the old center of São Paulo.

The Sound coming from the DJ Booth is split into various frequencies which are directly connected to the projections. Graphics and mappings are responding to the sound of the Beat.

The audience can play with interactive projections on the architecture by using their cellphones - spraypainting SMS Messages in form of PIXAÇOES displayed on a large Scale!

Pixação is a unique form of graffiti native to São Paulo. Basically, it's tagging done in a distinctive, cryptic style, mainly on walls and vacant buildings. Many pixação artists compete to paint in high and inaccessible places, using such techniques as free climbing and abseiling to reach the locations. Pixação has inspired and formed many Brazilian street artists, such as Os Gemeos.

More information on the project can be found on the website of bungalow agency:
