LA-based artists Byron Westbrook and Alex Pelly present a live Audio/Visual collaboration using electronics and modular video synth. The project expands from their online performance created earlier this year for the cathartic and damaged compositions on Distortion Hue, Westbrook’s recent LP with Hands in the Dark. This live iteration features Pelly’s colorful and dynamic audio-reactive images activated by Westbrook’s sonics made with analog and digital synthesizer, computer and processed cassette tape.\ \ Volvo240DL is collaborative project between multidisciplinary artist and maker, Grace Cofrancesco and composer and artist Albert Peacock. The duo was born out of a shared desire for cathartic expression that culminated in an impromptu performance between the artists at a local gallery show in Santa Cruz, CA. Since, they have come together to explore what years of anxious energy has inspired in their individual artistic ventures, as a pair. Their performances examine, deconstruct, and recreate narratives of decay, destruction, piety, and pain through absurdism, humor, and often a litany of repeating images and sounds.
