«#rosetiencasa» [Argentina]Argentina, Switzerland — Events
EMILIO GARCIA WEHBI
Bringing together artists and performers that are a part of the history of Roseti, «#rosetiencasa» is a series of online encounters on the Performing and Musical Arts. Born within the framework of obligatory social isolation as a way of creating encounters between artists who are akin to the searches that take place in their space. The project was divided into two main areas: the musical and the performing arts.
In the performance area, two Swiss artists and two Argentineans, through virtual meetings called Pandemic Zone were invited to discuss the challenges of performing through distance: Simon Senn [CH] with Emilio Garcia Wehbi [AR] moderated by Federico Irazábal [AR] and Nicole Seiler [AR] with Diana Szeinblum [CH] moderated by Barbara Hang [AR].
MEETINGS IN STREAMING
In the music area, the project invited two independent labels, OUS [CH] and TVL REC [AR], and each one presented an artist. Manuel Oberholzer (FELDERLMELDER) and [CH] Victoria Barca (Vic Bang) [AR] presented a Solo Set and were interview by Roseti’s founder, Matias Coulasso.
From this collaboration, both artists and labels released an EP, in March 2021 at an event at Radio CASo (Sound Art Center of Argentina).
You can access the EP here.

The first infectious release came from Swiss veteran producer Bit-Tuner in December 2015. The new year will bring the vicious debut LP by IOKOI, an album by tortuous electronic producer FELDERMELDER and a delirious 7”-series with works by SENKING, Hirsch&Eigner.
Victoria Barca (VIC BANG): is the solo project of Buenos Aires based artist Victoria Barca. Vic marshals miniature sounds, impossibly crisp samples, synthesis, micro-melodies and eclectic rhythms to cultivate a tiny and organic chaos. Victoria has released her first album under the Vic Bang alias, ”Blop”, through Abyss label. Her second album “Lira” is out on Kit records (UK) in cassette format, this year.
TVL REC: is a South American digital label based in Buenos Aires, dedicated to the production of experimental and improvised music.

Emilio Garcia Wehbi: is an interdisciplinary artist working in the crossover of different scenic languages. Since 1989 -year in which he founds El Periférico de Objetos, a paradigmatic group in the experimental and independent Argentinean scene- up to these days, he has become a prominent theatre director, régissuer, performer, visual artist and teacher.
Simon Senn: At first sight, Simon Senn’s work sometimes gives the impression that he is a socially engaged artist speaking out against a certain type of injustice. However, his work reveals a more ambiguous approach. Even though to a certain extent it is primarily based on reality, there is always a layer of fiction that is interposed. Simon Senn (born in 1986) lives in Geneva.

As a choreographer, she travels the performance and scenic arts with works such as Secreto and Malibú (2000), Alaska (2007), Una cosa por vez (2013), Adentro! (2016). Her works have been invited to festivals and theatres in America, Europe and Asia.
