ARIADNE - EXPERIMENTAL SACRED MUSIC & NEW MEDIA

ARIADNE is an experimental sacred music and new media art duo whose work explores the intersection of mysticism, dream analysis and the failure of digital systems through a synthesis of music performance, digital and interactive art, poetry and dramatic experience. Much of ARIADNE's output consists of interactive audio/visual performances which employ custom built hardware and software, real-time 3D animation, and machine learning to create immersive and captivating experiences. ARIADNE's body of work includes feature-length audio/visual albums, web-based virtual reality, and a/v installations. 

Local support provided by Krem ôn' Wo͝ol (ambient/drone/tape manipulation out of Meriden, member of Florida=Death, among other bands), Hedonist (sound art out of Shelton, formerly of Coke Divas), and Human Flourishing (dreamy noise from New Haven). Come prepared for other surprises (8mm film projections? tattoo demos? choreographed dance numbers?). RSVP on Facebook
