See Jamie xx and Quayola collaborate on the first ever RizLab project
Experience a conceptual audio/visual experiment for one night only
Friday 22 July 2011
Please note, this event has been postponed from its original date on 11 August until further notice in light of the riots at the request of the police. The show will go ahead at a later date.
It'll be a world first for post-dubstep superproducer Jamie xx and visual artist Quayola when they meet professionally for the first time in London this August.
The pair, titans of their respective fields, aim to combine their talents and create a brand new live experience: a unique, extended set that'll see Jamie debuting tracks from his forthcoming EP while Quayola performs alongside him, interpreting the music as it is played on 17m HD screens.
Held on 11 August in London at a venue to be announced, this show is also notable in that it's the inaugural project from RizLab - which aims to create the ultimate live music experiences, bringing groundbreaking artists together in striking new collaborations in order to push the boundaries of what art and music can be.
Having first come into contact with Quayola’s work in early 2011, Jamie xx has been looking for the opportunity to work with him ever since. Quayola’s work explores photography, geometry, time-based digital sculptures and immersive audiovisual installations and performances, and his collaboration with Jamie xx promises to be an unforgettable experience - and the perfect way to launch RizLab.
You can enter the free ticket lottery at www.RizLab.co.uk. The first 50 applicants to register there will be guaranteed a pair of tickets, and after that tickets will be allocated by prize draw.
