Cannibals,

Hungry for more stills?  

And a little description?

Well, if you were a witness you would of heard an otherworldly sound (produced by the broom) accompanied by a rhythmic audio track. 

Make-up by A Rose Perished.

CicLAvia Performance Stills by DBL

Happy weekend to all,

Last week there was an amazing turn out at CicLAvia in Los Angeles Ca.,  130,000 people came out.  We were happy to perform for you L.A..  It was amazing to see this city crowded with bikes.   I think next time there needs to be more streets closed off, more art, and more happenings on the street.  Hope to have the video edited soon for now here are some shots.

One more thing on October 29th we will be performing at Sancho Gallery in Echo Park, Ca.  Hope to see you there.

Jackal: DBRP Performance at The Torrance Art Muesums Zoom 2 by DBL

jackal at tam by DBRP















Description:

Three performers: The Handler (which had the Jackal by a leash), the Jackal (which wore a leather headpiece) and the Controller (behind the laptop).

The Jackal and the Handler performed on a ring of salt.

The headpiece had a web cam on the front (which served as an eye), a microphone (which served as a digital gag), and a L.C.D. screen (which served as a filtered window to reality). The live video and audio feed, from the Jackal, was first processed by the Controller which was behind the laptop and in front of the projection. Then the feed was sent to the projector and back to the Jackal, transformed and filtered. What the Jackal saw and the audience saw was the equal.


Performers:
The Handler- Wet Mango
The Controller- Aaron Moreno
The Jackal- DBL

Torrance Art Museum by DBL


*object control will not be participating

July 3:

STATIONS: 751

7 Artists
5 Hours
1 Day

TAM: On Saturday, July 3, 7 sound and media artists from Los Angeles and Orange County will collaborate on a five hour performance that explores the concepts of transition, interaction and improvisation. Incorporating both electronic and conventional instruments, light projections, and movement, the program will feature new works by DBRP, phog masheeen, Eric Strauss, and FLOOD.

Compositions will be presented as a continuous stream of interconnected events that will transform the Torrance Art Museum into a cooperative sound/media installation and minimal conceptual circus. This performance exhibition will be curated by the Long Beach group FLOOD who produces and curates SoundWalk, a one-night multi-media event dedicated to sound art.

FLOOD’s practice of curation as a separate aesthetic category has resulted in SoundWalk striving to function as a stand-alone work of art comprised of other stand-alone works of art. Within this context, Stations: 751 will serve as a further experiment in “curation as art” as the five featured sounds artists function as a sub-curatory of artist-collaborators who determine such things as object placement and performance progression. As a result, sonic overlap zones and chance events will be among the elements that are a direct result of the curatorial expressions of the artists themselves. It is FLOOD’s hope that the results of this experiment will positively influence the group’s approach to future curato-artistic practice.

WHAT: Sound Art Exhibition curated by FLOOD (Kamran Assadi, Frauke von der Horst, Shelley Rugg-Thorp, Shea M Gauer, Marco Schindelmann)
WHO: Divine Brick Research Projects (Aaron Moreno and bumble head, Wet Mango, DBL), phog masheeen, Eric Strauss and FLOOD
WHERE: Torrance Art Museum (TAM), 3320 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA 90503

Bipeds alike,



This is the Sweep Performance performed at the SoundWalk of Long Beach, Ca (September 25, 2009). Many thanks to electronic emergency and many that helped out.

The audio consists of 2 channels each with two different excerpts from two different Sweep Performances performed at the SoundWalk.

The actual performance  consisted of one performer sweeping with a broom that was wired to a computer.   The computer filtered the sound of the broom accentuating it.  This sound was then directed back to headphones that were worn by the performer and anyone else that wanted to follow him and immerse themselves in the performance.

Old Guy Running Exhibit by DBL


The show consisted of 2 wooden pieces one a table the other a headpiece and two performers.

The table was not a table in traditional sense but more of an organ or instrument of sorts.  It worked as a resonator.  The top barrel shaped form was made of ceramic.  Inside it was a speaker and a microphone.  The microphone ran through an electronic effects device, to an alpine car amp then to the sub-woofer speaker in the form.  The actual table was made of lumber from the urban forest of long beach.  This piece was controlled by one performer through nobs on the top of the table.

The head piece was made of reclaimed lumber from an old Baptist church/ Pentecostal church.  The headpiece also had a microphone located in the conal shaped form and a analog synth embedded in the body which also had nobs and circuit bending switches.  This piece was worn and controlled by the second performer. 

Here are some shots from the show:
