"An optically violent variable quasar (often abbreviated as OVV quasar) is a type of highly variable quasar. It is a subtype of blazar that consists of a few rare, bright radio galaxies, whose visible light output can change by 50% in a day ."
OVV is a new live sound reactive A/V set by S. Olbricht (Farbwechsel records) and Gabor Kitzinger (Glowing Bulbs). It focuses on eye vision abnormalities glitches and extreme light phenomena, reacting morphing on live sound input.
S Olbricht is a producer and co-owner of Farbwechsel Records. He walks on the obscure side of the electronic music landscape and during his restless journey he explores the blurred territories between murky techno and melancholic house combined with ambient sound and abstract rhythms.
Gábor Kitzinger is a video artist, started vjing in the early 2000’s at musical events and joined Glowing Bulbs in 2006. Together they designed several large scale architectural mappings and did numerous vj performances around the globe.
For his solo video art, music videos and sound-reactive A/V shows he usually creates abstract and colorful 3D animations, and also often appears at exhibitions with his stylistically similar sculptures and paintings.
Viewers are given the space to freely interpret these situations and explore their own individual narratives within the frames of perception".
In past years, Glowing Bulbs has created numerous video mapping and panoramic projections, live VJ performances, music videos, short films and stand alone video installations.
Their work has been exhibited at festivals, galleries and museums throughout Hungary, The United States, China, England, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia and Romania.

Live Cinema Festival is an exhibition of live performances that explores and promotes all the artistic tendencies attributed to "Live Cinema", with performances by Italian, German, English, Dutch, Polish and Belorussian artists, who have made this technique of narration their stylistic code.
“Live Cinema” means an experimental narrative technique, applied to performative video, which gives rise to the simultaneous creation of sound and images in real time, in which the traditional standards of narrative cinema, represented by the subjectivity of the camera, is expanded into a broader conception.
“Cinema” is understood as the act of simultaneously creating images and sounds that interact with each other and take shape in a synaesthetic approach that results in audio-visual performance realized in real-time, in which the viewer’s perception is in constant tension between experimentation and re-enactment.
The performances proposed in this first edition of Live Cinema Festival tend to explore issues related to social and new media, as well as to more introspective concepts emerging on the screen in a new light, enriched by new languages and new meanings.
Live Cinema Festival has been selected as a project of the "Roman Summer 2014" funded by the municipality of Rome which, through the performances of 8 artists, aims to exploit one of the suburban areas of the city, thanks to a program that combines emerging and well-known artists, could become a new center of cultural aggregation.
Live Cinema Festival is a cultural and artistic project, promoted byFlyer communication in co-production with LPM – Live Performers Meeting, FLxER.net, Linux Club, Free Hardware Foundation and Improvearts in collaboration with SIAE ed ACEA with the support of Comune di Roma and approved by AVnode.
