THE RASHOMON EFFECT w/
Tomas Jirku, Fidget, Hoopty Heaven, and Zenas[prime].
Video by vj kaboom. play separate, sequential
sets, the artists contribute multiple short pieces
to an evolving work. All five projects will be
set up at the same time. Each will contribute
three sets of fifteen minutes apiece. The sets
will mix together like a DJ mix, except the mixing
will be done by the musicians in real time. The
event will combine aspects of musical battle,
collective improvisation, and collaborative composition.
The Rashomon Effect brings the idea of the hip-hop
battle to instrumental electronic music. Simultaneously,
success for each opponent depends
on the ability to understand and compliment each
others style. The nature of the event is
to create one collaborative piece comprised of
diverse parts as well as interesting transitions.
