From Germany, the sound and visual design duo Amnesia Scanner investigates the overload of technology in our daily lives, while the show by Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones, founders of the Fractal Fantasy project, uses motion capture to translate movements into sound tracks, transforming them into an avatar that will go with the audience.

Spectators will be immersed in the audiovisual atmosphere of Drew McDowall of Coil, DJs Nina Kraviz, Laurel Halo and Batu, with the projection of the video Il capo by Yuri Ancarani. The link with nature is also strengthened by the excursions within the megalithic complexes of Montecrestese and in the gorges of Orridi di Uriezzo, organized by the festival.
