Rhizome.org Presents...Crap-tops vs. Laptops
|Organized by the New Museum's new-media branch Rhizome.org, Crap-tops vs Laptops kicks off Monkey Town's Video Week, an off-the-cuff festival for the digital underground. Tonight's event celebrates Dirt Style
computer-generated music and videos, pitting artists working with
commercially marketed software against those using homemade hacked
programs. Both camps ultimately produce a chaotic sensory assault of
psychedelic colors, media sampling, and 8-bit beats. Paper Rad headline with Found Footage,
a two-minute visual mash-up, while Dallas-based duo Treewave creates
graphics with everything from an Atari 2600 to a Fisher-Price toy
camera. Live performances include LoVid, playing their homemade audio-visual synthesizer, and chiptuners Bit Shifter and Nullsleep, who create music through Game Boys. (AM)|
Note: Video Week at MonkeyTown continues through Sat 1.28.
