Radio Voices

New York, 2019

Music and dance performance with live generative visuals and surround sound

Arup was commissioned by the 2019 Performa biennial in New York to produce a live immersive audio and video performance featuring David J (bass, Bauhaus), Rona Rougeheart and Curse Mackey (keyboards, computer, drums, vocals), Heather Paauwe (violin), and Vangeline (butoh dance) for an hour-long improvised piece. Radio Voices is an homage to poet Rene Halkett and a celebration of the 100 anniversary of the birth of the Bauhaus movement. I designed video content and performed live video projection on custom software for the closing night of the biennial at Elsewhere in Brooklyn.

Designed, produced, and live-engineered in collaboration with Alex Mayo, Joseph Digerness, Joe Chapman, Devin Bean, Brendan Smith and Raj Patel at Arup.
