Takeshi Murata OM RIDER PremiereElectronic Art Intermix
535 W 22nd St # 5, New York, NY
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.
