Damien Rice is joining Spanish street artist, Escif, to mark the opening of “Breath Project” on May 19th at Teatro Acacia. Tickets to “Breath Project” go on sale Wednesday, February 15th at 11:00am CET [link:www.breathproject.it].
Damien Rice will be performing for the first time in Napoli for a concert focused on uniting people together to mark the opening of Escif's project to create a living battery on the side of a barren mountain, Mount Olivella. Ticket sales from
the concert, as well as a crowdfunding will directly go towards the financial development of “Breath Project.”
"Breath Project” is striving to revive Mount Olivella, a 1000 mt. high mountain that suffered partial deforestation with side effects causing flooding in the surrounding areas. The installation will include the planting of 5,000 trees on the mountain. Escif’s vision is creating a huge organic drawing of a battery, symbolizing the renewing and regenerating of itself. From sea to surrounding towns, the visibility of the project will show seasonal cycles expressed through the changing colors and the presence or absence of leaves. It is a reminder to all that nature, just as phone batteries, needs recharging in order to function properly.
Damien and Escif have collaborated in the past to create the drawings used in the cover and booklet of Damien’s latest album, "My Favourite Faded
This past October, Damien took part in Michelberger Music, a special event where those invited participate in an independent, artist–driven, commercial–free collaborative musical gathering at the Michelberger Hotel and Funkhaus in Berlin.
Everyone only saw a fraction of what was happening simultaneously at Michelberger Music.
Thanks to a team of camera & recording people, some moment have been captured to share with others. See below for videos featuring Damien:
