_Parallax Scroll _is a multi-media performance piece that bridges the abstract landscapes of sound, light, time, and movement. A weaving together of ritualism, cascading projections, and both improvised and composed avant-garde music, take the participant on a voyage through the emergence of life.
A collective of artists, each utilizing different mediums, come together as Parallax Beach to make a unique work. Wes Johansen creates a visual representation of abstract thought through digital video projections, live editing and synchronizing with pre-recorded sound. In conjunction Mike Meanstreetz uses avant-garde percussion and composition techniques triggering video projections, tangling the participant of this ritualistic performance in a web of synaesthesia. These elements are accentuated as josie j conveys transformation to witnesses through ritualism/ meditative movement influenced partly by Butoh training and a background in performance art. Also performing in this piece are Zachary Vidal (saxophone/sampled noise) providing textured mood and Brennan Lowe (movement) setting the wheel of this cycle into motion.
Invoking the zeitgeist of the night’s multi-disciplinary performance, elle mehrmand *opens with a solo piece divined of haunting voice and movement. Passing through the theater’s entry way, the night’s performances will be initiated both spatial and temporally by a traversable light and sound installation by the artist *Lazer Blade.
