A COLLABORATION WITH VIDEO-ARTIST QIAN LI.
In the past 51XO has always taken summers off – and as Northerners, we relish the sunshine, warmth and blue skies it brings. As this summer approaches its glorious zenith and begins the slow fade into the sleepy twilight of our precious memories, we wish to celebrate – by sharing with all of you a new piece from recent collaborative adventures.
Through, by friend and video-artist Qian Li is a brilliantly colored fantasy travel adventure which takes an abstract look at a simple bus ride through foreign lands, the perfect statement for late summer road trips. Original soundtrack by 51XO. We want to keep your imaginations fresh and fertile until we can meet again in live performance.
Our public season begins this November in “Gentle Darkness”, our sonic exploration of sleep, circadian rhythm, and the music in your dreams. If you like this video or wish to help us grow towards the realization of this live show, we are always accepting donations.
