Brainwaves modulate live sound & video in real-time.
As part of Creative Tech Week New York’s sonic explorations group PLAN 23 presents: “PSYCHEDELIC IMMERSION THEATER” – an extended, immersive, audio-visual experience. During the performance electrode sensors will measure the musicians’ brainwaves in real-time, which will be visualized and modulate live video and sound. Plan 23’s psychedelic sound encompasses a sonic spectrum from dark-ambient to noise, from drone to 21st century electronica.
The brainwave visualization and live-video team are Zarah Cabañas (aka vj Lady Firefly), Chris Jordan, Masahiro Kahata [Psychic Lab], and VJ Fuzzy Bastard [Azerbaijan A/V Club].
Interactive installation at Cadence 23, a warehouse space in Queens. This is a reflecting pool of waves across a triangle screen, where visitors are welcome to interact with the water, creating patterns of light and movement.
The installation is part of the group art/performance month titled “Cadence 23”.
Remember Monkeytown? Their space was the best venue in town for projection art, and losing it was a real NYC-breaks-your-hearts moment. But it’s back! Cantina Royal, the restaurant serving executive chef Julio MM’s unique interpretations of Mexican cuisine, is reopening the performance space, and they’ve invited a great inaugural lineup. There will be dance, VJs, live music, burlesque, and some fascinating food in the front room.
