Saturday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Tonight at Oi Futuro Flamengo, the Festival Multiplicidade officially begins it’s tenth season. Celebrating technology, art and music, this year’s edition will begin tonight with the opening of the “Nós” exhibition, a cocktail party launching the 2013 Festival Multiplicidade book and a special performance by electronic musician Scanner.
“I’m fortunate to have had many opportunities to collaborate and experiment and it’s those moments of sharing work with a new audience that the real pleasure emerges,” Scanner told The Rio Times during a recent interview. “It’s impossibly dull working alone in a studio. Music and art are something to be shared and so it’s that special moment with an audience, creating a spell that is so magical to me.”
