Musical performance : NAVI
Stage design / 3D Mapping and projection : Derooted, SUMO Project and Lovera Motion+Photography
June 19, 2016 / Studio 223a
As part of NXNE 2014, NAVI performed the first two of three movements from the debut album ‘Derelict_528.’
‘Derelict_528’ is an atmospheric imagined film score, with overtones of modern classical, drone, doom jazz, and metal – all reinforced with sub-bass culled from modern dub influences.
The stage design tells the story of the imagined film score through a mix of projected moving and still images, mapped in a custom cut surface .Traveling through fragments of intense personal moments, anachronistic memories, and dreams that illustrate a journey of self-discovery .The story is deconstructed and re-constructed to the point that meaning can be shifted, and multiple interpretations are possible by the viewer.
