As always NEoN celebrates its festival with a late night party. Acts include cosmic drone duo, Art of the Memory Palace, NEoN’s Resident DJ RHL playing funky house beats alongside DJ Nina Stanger’s synthy disco sounds. A visual feast will be provided by USA based artist Cassie McQuater whose narrative, machinima-based visual story, Women In A Video Game, sees animations of stock-models fight, dance, and swim in an expansive world of colourful glitches, fantasy creatures, and alien overlords.
About the Artists
Cassie McQuater (USA) – is a new media and video game artist currently living and working in Los Angeles, CA. Her practice involves hours of surfing the net, mining for digital artifacts, and repurposing them as a way to reflect on and reinvent our relationship with interactive storytelling. Cassie’s visual story, Woman In a Video Game, will intertwine with a live performance by Art of the Memory Palace.
Art of the Memory Palace (UK) – is a group ascending through a cosmic void of pulsing synthesizer oscillation, narcotic soundscapes and enigmatic vocal echoes. Their live set will be animated by the gorgeous glitchy projected visuals of Cassie McQuater.
DJ Nina Stanger (UK) – Nina is an AV artist, designer and DJ. Myth and ritual combined with digital media and sculptural making are at the core of her creative practice. Along side Djing for NEoN Nina’s AV work, Standing Wave, will be filling the space. Standing Wave references the historical phenomena of the siren, a rendered representation of the she-beast for the digital age.
DJ RHL (UK) – Resident NEoN DJ has been entertaining us since 2010. Djing for about 25 years, he predominately plays Techno but you often find him playing anything dance music related. Spinning old school vinyl sets containing an eclectic mix of old and new stuff. RHL just likes making people dance.
