LARY7 CASTS A SPELL ON YOU - TRIBUTE-CONCERT TO TONY CONRAD

In his live performance, Lary 7 lets several 16mm projectors dance to create a mesmerising sound and light installation. The New York multimedia artist – a central figure of experimental underground music since the 1970s and the co-founder of Plastikville Records – will honour Tony Conrad at Bildrausch with a tribute concert. He considers Conrad – alongside Hollis Frampton and Paul Sharits, who all taught at the University of Buffalo, New York – one of his key sources of inspiration. True to Conrad's minimalist spirit, Lary 7 will evoke mechanical-magical-rhythmical sounds from the projectors through direct manipulations such as changing the projection speeds or switching between forwards and backwards, evoking a kind of trance state in the audience through stroboscopic effects.
