M4m (M for mobility) – is an European project initiated by the European Pépinières for young artists (co-organised by Tanec Praha/Czech Republic, Workshop Foundation/Hongria, Serde/Latvia, Pépinières européenes pour jeunes artistes/France, Déjà Donné/Italia, Transcultures/Belgium) whose objective is to contribute to the mobility of young interdisciplinary artists and professionals of culture. The M4m Forum in Prague organized by Tanec Praha (leader of the project) will offer public presentations of results produced within the project in the course of two years and discussions related to those fruitful experiences.
At the forum, three M4m residences hosted by Transcultures will be presented featuring new works by Mauro Vitturini + Arnaud Eeckhout, Paulo Dos Santos+Pao Paixao+Jacques Urbanska, Régis Cotentin.
Residence #1. Within the framework of the European project M4M (M for mobility), Transcultures welcomed three weeks in residence Vitturini Mauro, Italian composer and multimedia artist, proposing a new installation, “Attempt to exhaust Mons place” (a title loosely based on the novel by Georges Perec) dedicated to the city of Mons in collaboration with young Mons artist Arnaud Eeckhout which will be developed as a shared sound performance for this final event in Prague. The artists use sound as a universal language, proposing to revisit sounds which he recorded in the city.

Paulo Dos Santos + Pao Paixao (Portugal), film director, performer editor, digital designer collaborates with media artist Jacques Urbanska (Belgium), will present his project Derush # 2, combining the raw material of a future film -“From Ganga to Bollywood”- in random and interactive manner with a live electronic soundtrack/soundscape by Jacques Urbanska.
