The 2022 Roma Jazz Festival: Immersivity

ROMA-JAZZ-FEST-2022
Lady Blackbird

The 46th edition of the Roma jazz festival offers all-embracing experiences through music, video and virtual reality

The Roma Jazz Festival returns to animate the capital from November 6 to 19 with 26 concerts between the Auditorium Parco della Musica ‘Ennio Morricone’, Casa del Jazz, the Monk club and Teatro del Lido in Ostia.

Forget traditional concerts and indulge in totalizing experiences in which to make new connections, expand knowledge, visit synthetic worlds and imagine new ones, but also, most importantly, have fun. High-tech interactive and immersive performances, cosmonauts floating in space and colours generated from sounds thanks to Artificial Intelligence.  Psychedelic appointments and Grimm Brothers fairy tales tweaked by the audience, the music, video art and virtual reality and improvisation.

The title of this edition is “Immersivity,” to indicate a multisensory, playful and immersive approach that looks to the future without forgetting the roots of a language at once vernacular, sophisticated and immediate, able to speak to different audiences in concert halls, jazz clubs, dancefloors and large multimedia festivals.

The extraordinary programme of the Roma Jazz Festival 2022 continues the incessant research on the transformations of the national and international jazz scene, on its contaminations with other forms of expression and with technological innovation, to foreground the absolute trasversality, dynamism and contemporaneity of jazz.
