Original audiovisual works made in artistic sequence.

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?

Born in Santiago de Chile, Jeannette Muñoz is an experimental filmmaker, working mostly with 16mm film. She studied visual arts at the Faculty of Arts at the University of Chile and currently lives between Santiago, Chile and Zurich, Switzerland. Her films have been shown in several festivals and galleries such as Centro de Bellas Artes Madrid, S8 Mostra de Cinema Perisférico, New York Film Festival, Rotterdam FF Spektrum, Images Film Festival Toronto, Media City Film Festival Ontario Canada, Arsenal-Berlin, Ourense Film Festival, Festival Punto de Vista Pamplona, CGAI Centro Gallego de Artes da Imaxe, Xcèntric CCCB Barcelona, among many others.
Multidisciplinary artist Odete develops a work that operates in the field of music, visual arts, performance and theater. Over time she has presented creations in different spaces and contexts, from Teatro São Luiz to MAAT, including the festivals DDD - Dias da Dança and Iminente. She released several albums between 2018 and 2020, composed for shows and cinema, collaborated as a performer in several plays, presented exhibitions in her own name and released her first book of poetry entitled "The Elder Femme and other Stone Writings".
Matmos is an experimental electronic music duo formed by Martin Schmidt and Drew Daniel. Active since 1995, they regularly work with various artists both on their records and in live performances. Of their numerous collaborations, their partnership with Icelandic artist Björk stands out in the albums Vesperten (2001) and Medúlla (2004). In 2022, they released their 13th album Regards/Ukłony dla Bogusław Schaeffer. In this work, the duo explores the electroacoustic work of Polish musician and composer Bogusław Schaeffer.
Dicky Bahto is an artist who works with photography, film, sound and performance. He exhibits regularly in museums, galleries, micro-cinemas, film festivals, and alternative spaces. His most recent projects include a film for Liz Harris, video directing of Mieko Shiomi's Mirror Piece for an exhibition at The Getty Museum, music videos for songs by Sarah Davachi, Nite Jewel, Raum, Grouper, Chuck Johnson, and Ashley Bellouin & Ben Bracken, and an installation at the Time-Based Arts Festival in Portland of 35mm slides.
Jogo Cruzado has the objective 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.
The first crossing happened in June 2022 creating two original audiovisual pieces — first, a soundtrack by Jim O'Rourke for a film by Lois Patiño and then, a film by Gemma Green-Hope created after the 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.
