Hello, this is the REPORT of MobiDance2, a telematic dance event in which dancers are invited to interpret soundtracks by creating choreography to these sounds. The second event was successful, encouraging creativity and expression of the body through sound, and later offering a platform to showcase these collective experimentations, in which composers work in partnership with dancers.
The proposal was written by Fly Goa @fly
Making MobiDance: As agreed, the second edition of MobiDance was held on May 27th, in the form of a Youtube stream. We divided the production into three stages: pre-production, execution and post-production.
- Pre-production: May 11 to 17 - This stage was for the selection of dancers and production of the tracks. A call was made on the forum for dancers interested in participating, and we received 4 submissions: Isadora Prata (@isadora_prata), Hein Oliveira (@Oli_hein), Amanda Leal (@amandalealart) and L (@LulucaL). During this period, the soundtracks were created, combining sounds from soundscapes, voices, guitars, piano and percussion instruments. Four tracks were made, two from each composer, and these tracks were made available on dropbox for the dancers to choose from.
Execution: May 18 to 26 - In this stage, the dancers chose their tracks and produced their videos. A whatsapp group was opened to facilitate communication among those involved.
On May 23, we received the videos made by the dancers. As the videos were delivered, Fly Goa (@fly) made the payment to the dancers.
From May 23rd to 26th we finalized the videos by synchronizing the audios and adding the opening and closing vignettes. A video with the 4 pieces was assembled for transmission via youtube.
The publicity pieces for the event were also prepared with images and sounds extracted from the videos. All those involved contributed with the promotion of the event on their social networks.
#nomadelabel-dao supported by promoting the event on its networks and offering the youtube channel for the broadcast.
Finally, on May 27th the broadcast of MobiDance 2 on Nomade Label DAO’s youtube channel took place as planned.
the submitted videos have also been individually hosted on the Nomade Label DAO youtube channel, as per the links below:
- Post-production: between May 27th and May 31st. The finalization of this process will be the mintage of 4 NFTs in the Dance DAO store, with a 25 second excerpt each performance along with a PDF file with text and links to the full performance on youtube. The royalties from these NFTs will be distributed between the DanceDao store and the artists involved in each video.
We thank the dancers, who provided beautiful interpretations and forms for our soundtracks, NEAR Protocol and DanceDAO for their support, and Nomade Label DAO for their partnership.
We intend to continue this project by involving DAO dancers in new telematic events, where movement and sound art meet and dialogue in the creation of video dances. We also intend to mintage the pieces produced in MobiDance1, and if it is of interest this mintage can happen in the DanceDAO store at Mintbase.
a note about payments: we received the amount from DanceDao when NEAR was quoted at 6.78 USD. When we passed it on to the dancers, we used this exchange value, which generated a small difference in relation to the dollar, due to the devaluation of the currency. This was previously agreed upon between the dancers and the production.
