Ibiza Formentera : A Feast Of Senses

At Ibiza, everything or almost is an excuse to celebrate. They celebrate the opening of night-clubs at the start of the season and their closure, they celebrate on the beach, on boats and in villas, and every day they even celebrate the sunset. The local inhabitants also perpetuate traditional feasts in their villages. Over and above these festive rites, this documentary by Pierre Brouwers reveals an island rich in ancient history, encircled by creeks, cliffs and yellow sandy beaches emerging from limpid seas. Not forgetting, for people who still harbour a sense of peace and quiet, the little sister island of Formentera.


Space Ibiza is the most awarded club in the history, a party icon. It revolutionized the clubbing scene creating the first after-hour in the World. Nowadays, Space Ibiza has 5 rooms, 3 of them are partially outdoor: Sunset Terrace, Premier Etage and El Salón. Main Room and the legendary Terrace complete the structure of this famous club, known by its fantastic atmosphere and big productions. The gargantuan Opening and Closing parties also feature a special outdoor stage.


Chorus is a collective of monumental and transfixing sound sculptures created by sound artist Ray Lee. Towering high above the audience, giant metal tripods with rotating arms sing out hypnotic siren calls creating a pulsating harmonic drone. Red lights whirl like a swarm of fireflies, or of planets in motion, like mesmerising orbits of colour.

Janet Cardiff’s Forty Part Motet

Janet Cardiff‘s artwork Forty Part Motet 2001 is an audio installation reworking the sixteenth-century choral work Spem in Alium by English composer Thomas Talli.
The artist worked with the Salisbury Cathedral Choir to record 40 individual singers, playing each voice through its own corresponding speaker. The speakers are carefully positioned in eight different groups of five, responding to the structure of Tallis’s complex vocal piece, or motet. Each group forms a choir of five singers with different vocal ranges: a bass, baritone, tenor, alto and soprano.


Researchers are studying whether “embodiment” – where you can see and control a virtual reality body – has effects in the real world.
Some experiments have suggested that giving people a virtual body can improve cognitive abilities and enhance their interest in a particular subject or reduce racial bias and domestic violence.
