Canal180, Culturgest and gnration have joined forces to create Jogo Cruzado, a discipline invented to get to a place by merging two different art forms. Original audiovisual works made in artistic sequence will be shown on TV and online.

The process is made in two ways: a short film by a visual artist was given to a musician to compose its soundtrack and, at the same time, a musical composition was given to a filmmaker to create its film.

We want to show how narratives influence others, how sounds and images are combined, how artists continue the creative flow of other artists in a collaboration made in two times, in total belief for the final result. Along the way, we are confronted with a cross artistic game that challenges us to find our place as spectators within the process itself. What comes first, how do we separate images and sounds, which narrative prevails, how do we dive into the dramaturgy that magically joins the other two, is there really a first and second stage?

#1 Soundtrack by Jim O'Rourke for a film by Lois Patiño

#2 Gemma Green-Hope's film for a musical composition by Surma.

A leading figure in experimental music and beyond in the last 40 years, Jim O'Rourke is a complete musician, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and sound engineer, with an endless discography in his own name and as a collaborator. A major part of his recent output, since 2013, is through his Steamroom Bandcamp, but it is with his song records that he has collected the fame that haunts him. Living in Japan for almost 20 years, O'Rourke has also composed film soundtracks for films by Werner Herzog, Koji Wakamatsu and Olivier Assayas.

Associated to the New Galician Cinema, Lois Patiño has had an ascendant career brightened by the participation in the biggest and best world film festivals, such as the Quinzaine des réalisateurs in Cannes, Berlinale, Locarno, Toronto, Rotterdam, among many others. In 2013, "Death Coast", his debut feature film, was awarded at Locarno, anticipating another fifteen awards on his circuit through festivals. With a keen, plastic eye for textures, Lois Patiño, the son of two Galician abstract painters, tells human documentary stories delivered to the forces of nature.  One of his most recent films, "Syrocax", is based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and has the Azores as its setting. In 2021, he designed the image and directed the presentation film of the album "La Exclusión" by Nino De Elche.

Using stop motion, animation, video, archive material and photography, Gemma Green-Hope creates a special connection between places, stories and memories through her films. With work for Penguin, School Of Life or Tate, she has also collaborated on community projects with organisations such as the National Theatre of Wales. Her works have been shown at various film festivals and events, such as the London Short Film Festival or National Geographic's Short Film Showcase.

Revealed with "Antwerpen" in 2017, with which she collected numerous accolades and awards, Surma has since then had a constant presence in the Portuguese music scene, with participation in the biggest national music festivals, a performance as a finalist in the 2019 Song Festival, a soundtrack for the film "Snu" by Patrícia Sequeira, and a path rich in collaborations with other musicians. She has published her album internationally, taking her to tour in venues and festivals in America and Europe, and to be highlighted in the foreign press.

The objective of Jogo Cruzado, which, in 2022, will show the first two works in June and another two in October, is to create a wide and rich network of audiovisual matter, showing film and sound techniques from multiple languages and influences, confronting us with the many ways of seeing what we hear and hearing what we see. We have therefore sought out new and established artists who challenge conventions and surprise the various participating artists, whether they are the finalists of the work or the makers of the initial stage.

Canal180 gives insight on social topics by amplifying creative independent new voices.
