transmediale and CTM festivals celebrate their 2023 editions with a collaborative closing concert.
Amnesia Scanner will premiere their new work Â»strobe.ripÂ« in collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Freeka Tet, fusing their combined aesthetics into an affecting narrative about isolation and survival within todayâ€™s collapsing ecosystems and information environments. With hyper-detailed 16k fantasy vivid colors and maximum texture, the concert will serve as the launch to a new collaborative body of work to be unleashed throughout 2023 via further live performances along with variably formatted digital and physical releases on PAN.
Opening the night are Team Rolfes with Â»3-2-1 Rule,Â« a VR-puppeted, motion capture avatar-ed, mixed-reality narrative project that will appear in a live stage adaptation at CTM. Directed by Sam Rolfes and written by spam poet Jacob Bakkila, the story follows Eris Wonderful, a memory hunter gig worker in a near-future metaverse. This manic AV mashup of real-time 3D avatar theatre, metaverse-parody games features an original score by Galen Tipton, a half-sardonic digital slapstick, half-hyperpop scream ballad.
