The Gothic Multimedia Project announce their latest multimedia opus project entitled “

Beneath the Snow – Piovono Ombre

(”meaning “It Rains Shadows” in Italian). It is an interactive movie featuring musical, artistic and lyrical contents and it's the fruit of the complex work of a team of 28 musicians, artists, actors, graphics, technicians who collaborated under the direction of James Maximilian Jason and David Bosch.

The film itself is partly comprised of musical-art tracks and partly of dialogues in Italian with English subtitles. The 32-page booklet, depicting the whole work as well as the single stories within the main story, is entirely in English. Here you can see the trailer. It is officially released on May 28, 2016:


“Gothic” is a dark avant-garde multimedia project founded in 1989 in Genova, Italy, having released ten demos as a band (1989-2000) and four huge official multimedia works as a multimedia ensemble (2001-2016). Visit website at:

Interactive Video Installation


"Capturing and tracking camera, animated image integration and projectionCreated in 2007

Oups! was born from the wish to mix new technologies and classic animation in a playful and artistic way.  Each animated sequence has a script and the visitor interacts and transforms himself into an actor of this story.  When the visitor enters in a defined space, a camera records his image and projects it on a screen in front (like a mirror) in real size and time. The visitor sees himself integrated to an animation setting that follow his movements. He founds himself immersed in a creative universe of images and sounds.  The animation sequences that feed this universe are stored in a video library, new animations may be added to enrich the project. Oups! universe is playful and naive, accessible to all publics and ages."

Internet Umbrella


This is so clever - what a wonderful idea to create an internet umbrella.

"Pileus is an umbrella connected to the Internet to make walking in rainy days fun. Pileus has a large screen on the top surface, a built-in camera, a motion sensor, GPS, and a digital compass. The current prototype has two main functions: photo-sharing and 3D map navigation.

The photo function is connected to a major web service: Flickr API. A user can take photo with a camera on the umbrella, and pictures are uploaded to Flickr in two minutes with context tags via a wireless Internet connection. User can also enjoy theirselves watching photo-streams downloaded from Flickr with simple operation of wrist snapping."

Audio Palimpsest

"Audio palimpsest is an interactive sound-based installation which explores applications of indeterminacy and randomness in an interactive platform. Based on a reconfigured cassette recorder, Audio Palimpsest is meant to be viewed indoors, where upon interaction, it will start recording ambient sounds in the space and playing it back simultaneously. Over time and after multiple interactions, content of the magnetic tape builds up, layering previous recordings thus creating a palimpsest of sound."
