Promo for the Christmas Event with Brian Eno’s 77 Mio. Paintings

Promo for the New Year’s Event with works from Rafael Rozendaal and international VJ artists.

To celebrate this 2011 Christmas Eve, ikono is proudly broadcasting a unique 24-hour event of the second installment of our exclusive presentation of Brian Eno‘s work ‘77 Million Paintings’, produced by ikono, on ikonoTV in Germany, ikonoMenasa in the Arab region and/or stream it online from anywhere in the world.
Brian Eno is an English musician, composer, record producer, music theorist, singer and visual artist, best known as Co-Founder of Roxy Music and one of the principal innovators of ambient music. Sprung from a shared aim to bring visual arts into the increasing number of flat panel TVs, ikonoTV presents a 24-Hour exclusive broadcast and screening of Brian Eno‘s work ‚77 Million Paintings‘. As „visual music“, his artwork 77 Million is a constantly evolving image and soundscape, which continues his exploration into light as an artist‘s medium and the aesthetic possibilities of „generative software“. The work is a morphing amalgamation of 296 images, overlaid in random sequences and set to Eno‘s ambient music. As the title suggests, there are 77 million possible combinations, ensuring every viewer sees something different.

Streamed: On for 24 hours starting Saturday, December 24th at 8:00 pm until Sunday December 25th at 8:00 pm, Broadcasted: On ikonoMenasa and ikonoTV

And to celebrate the New Year, ikono reiterates the experience and organizes a 12-hour broadcasting of VJ works from international artists.
Same as the Brian Eno event, this event will be broadcasted on both our 2 HDTV channels and on our website.
The VJs featured in this event all come from different locations in the world and responded to an ikono open-call, providing their best work to be compiled in a 12-hour long playlist that will accompany and complement perfectly the atmosphere of the different characteristic gatherings of the holiday season!

Streamed: On for 12 hours starting Saturday, December 31st at 10:pm until Sunday January the 1st at 10:am Broadcasted: On ikonoMenasa and ikonoTV

The ikono Team hopes these exclusive programs will accompany your holiday season’s celebrations accordingly and wishes you all the best for the new year to come!
