Last night (2/19), the three-night "Interference AV" festival began at the AMC Empire multiplex in NYC’s Times Square. The free series is presented by Times Square Arts and Clocktower Productions, and each night features experimental video collective Undervolt & co., who project immersive VJ sets on the movie screens during live musical performances. Last night, the music came from acclaimed footwork producer Jlin and there was an opening set by Sadaf. Before Jlin went on, Andrew Dimwiddie (Public Art Manager) of Times Square Arts and Lani Combier-Kapel (Events Manager) of Clocktower spoke to the crowd.

The whole event happens on the fourth floor of AMC Empire, with the music/projections in theater #13 and a roped-off area with a zine fair and a DJ in the lobby outside the theater. The series continues tonight (2/20) with Lightning Bolt and wraps up on Wednesday (2/21) with Sun Ra Arkestra. RSVP is still open. Pictures of night one are in the gallery above.

Jlin will be back in NYC in July for day three (7/29) of Panorama, the same day as The Killers, The xx, David Byrne, Fleet Foxes, Mount Kimbie, and more.
