M.Y.R.I.A.D.
Oneohtrix Point Never
Live
2018





Creative + Set Design : Griffin Frazen
Sculpture + Video : Nate Boyce
Lighting : Jeanette Yew

Pulling from long-standing fascinations with film and television tropes, abstract sculpture, game ephemera, poetry, apocryphic histories, internet esoterica, and philosophies of being, M.Y.R.I.A.D. generates a conceptual spectrum that is as much a speculation on the unthinkable future as it is an allegory for the current disquiet of a civilization out of balance with its environment.

Oriented around behaviorally choreographed set pieces and lighting, the theatrical installation takes a directly formal approach to themes latent in the  work by placing the audience inside the architecture of the music itself. Using the scale of the Wade Thompson Drill Hall to explore disorienting relationships between space and sound, M.Y.R.I.A.D. mutates forms of live musical performance.


World premiere at the Park Avenue Armory, New York City
