Revolución Perpetua is a collaboration between The Battle of Santiago, an afro-cuban world music ensemble and Patricio Davila, a designer, educator, researcher and media artist. This multimedia work presents a musical and visual exploration of how revolution takes form around the world, mixing live musicians, lights, visualizations and real time audience interaction into a powerful multimedia event. The audience members become participants by interacting with the presentation via their smartphones, further connecting them with their environment, the performance, and each other. They can also become viewers by allowing their smart phones to act as extended screens of the overall installation — enhancing the experience for everyone.
