The screen imagery exploded: into squares, spirals, circles, curves and, with some puffs from smoke machines, three-dimensional shapes unfurling overhead. The lasers were tightly coordinated with the music, with shapes expanding on each wallop; distorted tones got dotted lines, clearer tones got straight ones. For much of the set, the on-screen geometries were hard-edged white or near-white; when the screen suddenly turned blue, the dancing crowd roared. Later, the screen offered flickering numbers, letters and two words: “Love Code.” [NY Times]

The Red Bull Music Academy NYC residency continued this past Saturday (5/10) at Brooklyn Masonic Temple with German electronic composer/Monolake member Robert Henke presenting the US premiere of his laser and sound show, Lumière, and dark Tri Angle-signed producer The Haxan Cloak. Robert went on first, doing his set from the front row of the balcony with only the light of the lasers for illumination. The sold-out room emptied out a bit for The Haxan Cloak’s set, though both were great. Pictures of the show are in this post.

Red Bull Music Academy continues on Wednesday (5/14) with the Night of Improvised Round Robin Duets at Town Hall (tickets). Performers include Jamie Lidell, Jherek Bischoff, Kaki King, Petra Haden, Shigeto, Nels Cline, Daedelus, and more.
