NeoArte – Synthesizer of Arts : NeoQuartet – Modern Multicultural Quartet

NeoArte – Synthesizer of Arts is an international festival presenting the most interesting trends in contemporary music and art.

In the contemporary landscape, the edges between different creative arts are getting more and more figurative. Composers write pieces for video-art and visual artists create sound installations. It is getting harder to differentiate, yet connections and finding common grounds becomes easy. We are acting a bit like radar – trying to identify these changes – a bit like sonar – navigating the unexplored areas. Like a Synthesizer of Arts – creating new qualities.
