My piece will be projected on a 70-foot screen, along with other work by faculty and students. Refik Anadol, Miwa Matreyek, Davide Quayola and more!
FRIDAY April 28, Rhythms + Visions /Expanded + Live 3 outside our building.
Work from over 60 of our current students, alumni and faculty will be featured in the event!
Rhythms + Visions / Expanded + Live 3 will light up the outdoor spaces of the USC School of Cinematic Arts Complex in an evening of music, interactive animation, projection mapping, animated inflatables, and virtual reality. Innovative artists Refik Anadol, Miwa Matreyek, and Patterson + Reckinger will perform an eclectic program of contemporary visual music and audio-visual art.
Groundbreaking artist Refik Anadol, who has performed visuals with the L.A. Philharmonic at Disney Hall, will create imagery on a super-panoramic 70-foot screen to live performances by Grammy Award–winning pianist Gloria Cheng and guzheng player Zi-Zhu Zhao. Patterson + Reckinger’s kinetic op-art abstractions will be accompanied by toy piano trio, Thomas Feng, Alexa Constantine, Dante Luna. Music by composers John Adams, Esa Pekka Salonen (piano), Tristan Perich (3 toy pianos and 3-channel, one-bit electronics) and Pantawit Kiangsiri (guzheng) will be performed live.
On a second stage, Miwa Matreyek performs her fantastical shadow theatre work, The World Made Itself, inside a multi-projection stage. Miwa takes us on a journey through her surrealistic and magical worlds as she interacts within the projection. She has performed her work at MoMA, the Tate Modern, REDCAT, and Sundance. The VR Visual Music Lounge will offer exciting virtual-reality musical experiences and interactive installations from international artists as well as USC faculty and students.
Check out this teaser for the Bjork VR experience, which will be featured in the VR Visual Music Lounge.
