The psychedelic master premieres his latest animated video followed by a conversation and concert
Takeshi Murata unveils his latest computer-animated video OM Rider at this special event presented by EAI, in conjunction with Salon 94. Mostly known for his psychedelic animated videos, Murata teams up with composer/sound designer Robert Beatty and draws inspiration from campy horror films for this latest work. Featuring a keyboard playing werewolf and an old man, OM Rider is one of Murata's more bizarre projects. In addition to the new video, the evening highlights Murata's collaborations with Oneohtrix Point Never and Billy Grant. A conversation with the artist and performance by Beatty and C. Spencer Yeh closes out the night.
EAI is pleased to partner with Salon 94 to present the New York City premiere of OM Rider (2013, 11:39 min), a new computer-animated video by Takeshi Murata. To celebrate this new work, which represents one of the most integral collaborations yet with composer/sound designer Robert Beatty, this special evening will also spotlight the artist's other recent creative partnerships, including Murata's video for Oneohtrix Point Never's "Problem Areas" (2013, 3:07 min) and Night Moves (2012, 6:02), made with Billy Grant. The screenings will be followed by a conversation with Murata and Beatty and a live performance by Beatty and C. Spencer Yeh, who provides vocal work in OM Rider.
