The long wait for Corona Sunsets Festival fans had a successful end. This Saturday, August 27, a new edition of the massive event was held, which is carried out by Cerveza Corona in strategic places around the world and which saw its return in Chile after two years. And in this new festival, technology connected us with nature.
The event brought together thousands of fans at Mirador Pangue, with the presence of well-known artists such as CUT COPY, Colayuta, KLIK & FRIK and the national DJ KVM. A line up that thrilled those present, who also enjoyed the innovative experience of the natural-stage, initiative that made us experience sounds and music coming from the electricity inside the plants, making attendees live this unknown experience about small ecosystems.
The music of plants: their communication made music
Through electrodes, this has managed to transform into music. But what exactly is plant music? Through data biosonification, plants have the possibility to express themselves through music. Through two electrodes placed on the leaves of the plants, bioemissions can be obtained and these are converted into musical information.
“We are very happy to live a Corona Sunset Festival again. The event managed to generate and transmit a unique energy for all attendees. The moment of the sunset, together with the reverted song by Fran Valenzuela, achieved a magical moment for everyone. In addition, we had the opportunity to learn about the innovative Natural Stage, which had never been seen before in Chile.”, said Enrique Arteaga, Brand Manager of Cerveza Corona in Chile after the event that reinforces the brand’s presence on the local scene and celebrated the magic hour of sunset with his followers.
This is how plant music works:
More event details
Also present at the green event was Francisca Valenzuela leading her line up, where the more than 2,000 attendees were able to enjoy the magic hour of sunset enjoying the music of the Latin Grammy nominee and 4-time winner of the Pulsar awards, who presented the public his reinterpretation of “I want to see you more”. This was one of the artist’s most recognized songs, and she accepted the invitation from Cervecería AB InBev to change the rhythm of this iconic theme and create a version inspired by sunset time, which they call ”Life in The Magic Hour”.
The renowned beer thus combined its message of sustainability with a meeting between lovers of nature and good music, where the prompt presence in Chile of Corona Tropical was also announced, carbonated water with alcohol and soft touches of fruit. This new innovation of the company is already preparing its landing in the country.
“Natural Stage”: world premiere
This stage with plant music, presented by Corona for the first time in Chile, is based on the “Botánika” project by Chilean Francisco Morel and German Ben Reymann, who managed to integrate nature into communication by emitting sounds that come from electricity inside your system.
”Plants need nutrients, water and CO2 to be able to exist. In the process of photosynthesis they release oxygen and carbohydrates, but what is not well known is that they also have electricity within their system through their biorhythm. Botánika uses these voltages to make music through synthesis modulars, which produce the various rhythms thanks to the digital instrument and transducers -that transform one energy into another”, assures Francisco Morel, Chilean creator of the project. It was all a success.
