CEM ANOS DE GILBERTO MENDES - SET / OCT a big meeting between DAOs - Nômade Label DAO, Filmes de Infiltração DAO, PROCD DAO and Antimétodo DAO
CEM ANOS DE GILBERTO MENDES (ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF GILBERTO MENDES) provides a great tribute to the composer, poet, teacher, and also actor (as he would like to be recognized) Gilberto Mendes. Well known for creating the Festival de Música Nova (New Music Festival) in Brazil (a version of Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Darmstadt*) and for his irreverent compositions, Gilberto was for many of us a great creative reference!
Gilberto died early, in 2016, at the age of 93. He had just participated in the shooting of the medium-length film With My Dog-Eyes and was looking forward to seeing the film on the big screen. In 2015, he received a major tribute from the Festival de Música Nova, now known as the Gilberto Mendes Festival, and the Gilberto Mendes Week.
As artists in Brazil, we know that his recognition deserves even more attention and for that we decide to unify 4 DAO’s Nômade Label DAO, Filmes de Infiltração DAO, PROCD DAO and Antimétodo DAO and to pay this tribute to Mr. Mendes during the month of October, when he would have turned 100 years old.
The proposal will take place in Sao Paulo, Santos (the city where he lived most of his life and where he passed away) and in Metaverse.
We’ll proudly celebrate the great Brazilian musician Gilberto Mendes in his birthday’s month - October, offering the community live and virtual events, including film screenings and artistic performances inspired by his musical works. In order to spread this vivid month of celebration and to summon the event into words in English, this proposal aims to write 3 articles about the event, bringing a closer look on what is being built there and its importance to the Near ecosystem. We also see the possibility of translating the article written in Portuguese about the creative process that occurred in the film With My Dog Eyes, part of the master’s thesis “When the collaborative process overflows into cinematographic aesthetics” (2014), by Thais de Almeida Prado.
