Video Synthesis at Sydney Opera House!

Johnny Woods will be performing at the Sydney Opera House with his LZX and some prerecorded material !!!

28 May 2011 7:30PM - 11:59PM

"Gavin Russom, the synthesizer wizard behind The Crystal Ark and Black Meteoric Star, has been specially commissioned to create his most ambitious work ever exclusively for Vivid LIVE. The show is a 90 minute concert and installation featuring a 10 strong collective of musicians and artists from NYC, DFA Records, LCD Soundsystem and more.

Known as "The Wizard" for his technical prowess Russom has built instruments for the likes of James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and Tim Goldsworthy (UNKLE) and has toured playing synths and percussion with LCD Soundsystem.

Bringing the full Crystal Ark collective together with dancers, lighting designers and video and projection artists, Russom will expand on the immersive multi-sensory experiences he has developed for the 28th Sao Paulo Bienial, MOMA and PS1 in New York.

Sydney Opera House is the perfect location and Vivid LIVE the ideal occasion for this fusion of intense visuals with the living sound of The Crystal Ark full band."
