LA-based Brainfeeder artist Strangeloop (AKA David Wexler), designer of the live-visual shows for artists like Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, and Skrillex, premieres his new multi-media project Anamnesia, a collaborative work between members of Strangeloop’s recently founded a/v collective Teaching Machine. When Strangeloop met fellow visual artist Micah Nelson, Wexler became convinced that with Nelson’s help, a project that had been in his mind for 10 years could be manifested in the form of a short animated film, and explored in the context of a gallery show. Through a Kickstarter campaign the project was funded, but due to unending touring schedules, Wexler was forced to put the project on hold.
Cut to present: through the help of iconoclast artists like Gavin Gamboa, who created full string compositions and compositions for the animated film, Steve Teeple, who created character models, Brainfeeder’s MonoPoly, who did sound design and producer, Jake Bloch, the work has been completed to premiere at the April 6th event.
Also on the agenda for the night is work by Leigh McCloskey, visionary artist behind Flying Lotus’s Cosmogramma artwork, who will be showing works alongside Strangeloop and Micah Nelson. McCloskey’s work helped inspire the creation of the Anamnesia project, a science fiction myth explored in many media. Micah Nelson will be presenting conceptual sketches and paintings illustrating the mythology of Anamnesia. Strangeloop will be showing digital prints exploring the world of Anamnesia, Wiley Cable will be the DJ for the evening, and HIT + RUN crew will be screen-printing shirts.
