Agent Red and Crash Alchemy present a creative and fantastic experience – the 4th annual South by Southwest Street CRASH, recently named “Best Street Art of SXSW” by Kit O’Connell
What is a CRASH? It’s an improvised, surprise flash mob-style performance with very real people seeming more and more surreal until characters stories explode into performance.
The whole event depends on YOU creating your own character and story OR choosing to participate in the main storyline below.
This year, Crash Alchemy is moving into new fantastic territory with incredible new members, and created a Robo-dance just for the CRASH. And this is just the beginning.
Plus, this year, we collaborated with Yago De Quay in interactive sound technology.
“I am a robot. No really, I am.”
Sometimes we look back on our life and wonder “where did that time go while I was running through the automatic motions of my life?”
This year, we addressed one of the elements of madness in our culture: the need to organize, produce, develop, or consume, compulsions, automatic behavior and reactions, circular thinking and the the paralysis of a robot who wants to be human.
This year was bigger and better than ever before thanks to the facilitation of Clever Maven.
Dance Jockey, composed of Ståle Skogstad and Yago de Quay, is an one-of-a-kind electronic music performance where sounds are controlled by sensors on the dancer’s body. These sensors acquire data about body actions and transmit the information to a software that manipulates a broad range of musical parameters. The result is an electrifying theatrical performance that re-contextualizes electronic dance music away from acoustic instruments and laptops towards an exciting live act.
