It will be interesting to cooperate not only with music festivals, but also international festivals of synthesis of different kinds of arts. For example, the annual art festival "Inspiration", which was held in Belgium, in France, and this year very soon will be in Moscow, the art director-Julien Pavillard. In this festival, a light projection project is connected, an open-air show in nature - multimedia art. You can offer the team of the festival cooperation on sound accompaniment. In the cities of the event - you can choose for example Lyon - where there has already been a successful experience of this festival, and this city is not the capital - so there will be more interest.
Quite frankly, just in cooperation with music festivals, I see some problems, because there may be competition. So the example is very good in that it is not directly related to music. But the events connected with other kinds of art (and, maybe, big events connected with the sciences) are fertile opportunities for cooperation. Only every time you need to understand that such cooperation can give for ViolinFest in terms of expanding its audience and / or income. Perhaps we should spend two or three months thinking about this.
Thank you for supprting my idea, although it is not worked out yet. While the author of this light show is in Russia - probably just right now it's just easier to contact him and meet - as a first step. The general message can be expressed this way: music brings light into the souls of people - let there always be bright shining music!
Probably, it will be interesting to hold a contest for the creation of logo for the festival of light and music in the future, via competition among graphic artists - and other original ways of attracting interest to international events in this direction. Various awards within the framework of this event will, of course, come from another Omni-participant - the Jewel Mania brand.
Cooperation with the already famous light show festival will be in any way certainly useful.
I fully agree that the idea should be worked out, not limited to a separate festival, but thinking about what cultural events and events can get the status of "ViolinFest Ground", what obligations it will impose on them and what advantages to give. Mindful of your just comment about the possible unification of music and painting, it is possible to consider partnership with art museums as more priority than partnership with festivals
But here, too, there is an important aspect associated with a possible new way of the festival. If the festival will rely on environmental friendliness, then we must seek harmony with painting, reflecting nature.
If there is an emphasis on new technologies, then it is possible to partner with museums of contemporary art, that is, art, which appeared in the era of new technologies.
But, incidentally, there are festivals, including light shows, etc. - after all, also a reflection of new technologies. I would suggest a more detailed study of how ViolinFest can create a musical basis for the development of new technologies - this will create a philosophical and ideological basis for dialogue and partnership with similar museums and festivals. And then the very fact of such partnership will work for a "high-tech" image of the festival (although, of course, it would be good to think how it can still work for revenue growth and audience expansion.
Very serious attention I would advise to draw on Scriabin's symphony "Prometheus" - as a combination of music and painting with light. Scriabin is known throughout the world, but this great work is not performed very often, since it requires truly enormous creative and human resources. The very theme of the legend about Prometheus also has global fame - and this leads me to the idea that the synthesis of arts and the unification of human beings on the basis of the principles of humanism will be perfectly reflected in the Festival on this example.
Yes, it is very important to find musical works that ignore the aspirations and meanings of the modern generation of people. The only thing - it seems to me that there should be many such examples.
The legend of Prometheus raises the issue of choosing between conformism and non-conformism, which makes it a meaningful example of a possible ecological emphasis in the activities of the festival. After all, the ecological way - the way of abandoning some of the benefits of technical progress for the sake of respecting and preserving the nature of the Earth - is a path of non-conformism.
In this connection, it seems to me that our work on defining the philosophy of the festival and determining the main vectors of development on its basis seems especially urgent. They should give new meaning to the festival, on the basis of which it will be necessary to look for new solutions - both purely musical, and underlying other events and steps connected with the festival, but which are beyond the scope of concerts and other musical events.
