in::Sequence feat. Cuppetelli and Mendoza + Shigeto
An immersive experience in light and sound featuring new work from Cuppetelli and Mendoza with accompanying music by Shigeto. On view now through June 18th, 2017.
While discussing the possibilities for this exhibition, it became clear that all involved had a love for techno and its Detroit roots. Another undercurrent of our early planning revolved around the way that electronic music is made, using audio layers or channels, and at a more granular level, using samples and sequences. One final idea that guided the creation of the work was the notion that the whole experience should be somehow unified; while different pieces would have different visual qualities and sonic environments, they should still be part of a whole, which itself mirrors both electronic music making and the various “areas” of the typical rave party. The result of these discussions is in::Sequence, an immersive audiovisual experience consisting of visual installations designed by Cuppetelli and Mendoza and sonified by Shigeto.
The aesthetic approach is a playful take on rave psychedelia, but with the tools and technologies available in the present time. Simple materials such as tulle and mylar are combined with video projections, real-time audio and interactive software to create installations that are low and high tech simultaneously.
