The evening moved on with great surprises, the ” Estrella Damm music challenge”, will be a new event within Imagine Express 2015. The bar carriage will be set up as a recording studio and 3 musicians from different music backgrounds and who don’t know each other ( two of them don’t even speak the same language), they will have to compose a song during the train journey. Their first gig will be at the London Eye once the train arrives to London. In addition, we will have on board a great team of cinematographers, lead by David Victori- world winner of youtube first film festival, they will have the challenge to film a video clip using smart phones only, a narrative video piece that will reflect the creativity process of these musicians.
The video and the song will be presented at the Mobile World Congress on the 2nd of March together with the 4 winning projects of Imagine Express 2015!!! Good luck to everyone
