Motion Graphics Festival : Chicago Match^

Posted on | September 23, 2010 | No Comments

Thursday 16 September :: 7-10pm
at the Chicago Cultural Center, 77 E. Randolph St., Chicago, IL 60601-7503 (map)

In an over-zealous attempt to combine motion, sound and code-based art, MGFest has concocted a new approach to organizing live A/V performances. Come, sit back and enjoy yourself while 7 diverse acts perform custom collaborated audio-visual shows.

…1 week prior to the main event, MGFest invites 14 genre specific artist groups to speed-meet each other and vote on who they will collaborate with. Each music group is paired with a visual act and are given 7 days to create their 20 minute audio-visual show to be performed at MATCH^. By pre-connecting artists and providing them a week-long creation timeline, MATCH^ ignites a performance explosion of greater synesthesia by reciprocating multiple cognitive waves of creative harmony – between curator and performer, between audience and spectacle, between music and motion. We invite your eyes and ears to come dance together!

Now featuring an additional performance group!
