Beyond the Noise ― EDITORIAL DESIGN, EXHIBITION DESIGN
Artists spend more time offstage than on. However, it’s a peculiar inversion that their personalities are defined by snapshots of those fleeting moments under bright lights and in front of loud crowds, preserving the performer but not necessarily the person. What happens before the show, behind the curtain, as the audience bustles with anticipation? What happens once the last amplifier is switched off, and the last piece of trash swept away?
Beyond the Noise captures private moments from before and after the show: the adrenaline, the nervous tension, the ecstasy and the release. Presenting these emotions in their purest state and most vivid detail, this world-travelling exhibition presents an undisturbed and authentic look at a side most fans never get to see. The artists featured in Beyond the Noise come from diverse musical backgrounds and origins, and the selected photos are intimate and gripping candid portraits, with close-ups of interesting details conveying the uniqueness of each location. The photos were shot during the RBMA Festival in New York City, at the SonarDôme in Barcelona and throughout the 2015 Academy in Paris. Selected photos were shown in exhibitions in Istanbul, Amsterdam, Dubai, Vienna, Bucharest and Santiago de Chile.
