VESTIBULE is a new record label based out of Brooklyn, NY. On June 21st at the Schoolhouse in Bushwick, VESTIBULE celebrates it's first release - the soundtrack to Peter Burr's Special Effect by Lucky Dragons and Seabat.
PETER BURR'S SPECIAL EFFECT (Screening)
A special screening of the single channel version of Peter Burr's Special Effect - a exploration of The Zone from Tarkovsky's haunting epic Stalker.
LUCKY DRAGONS (LA, LIVE)
Lucky Dragons is an ongoing collaboration between Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Active since 2000, lucky dragons is known for an open and participatory approach to making music, radically inclusive live shows, and playful, humanistic use of digital tools.
Fischbeck and Rara have presented collaborative work in a wide variety of contexts, including the Whitney Museum of American Art (as part of the 2008 Whitney Biennial), the Centre Georges Pompidou, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, London’s Institute for Contemporary Art, The Kitchen in New York, REDCAT and LACMA in Los Angeles, MOCA Los Angeles, the 54th Venice Biennale, and the Smithsonian’s Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others. The name “lucky dragons” is borrowed from a fishing vessel that was caught in the fallout from h-B*mb tests in the mid-1950′s, an incident which sparked international outcry and gave birth to the worldwide anti-nuclear movement.
SEABAT (BROOKLYN, LIVE)
Seabat is a hat worn by musician and artist John Also Bennett (Forma), often with the film composer Forest Christenson by his side. Seabat offers a tasteful blend of cinematic cosmic surrealism with ambient house music, traveling through dream realm soundscapes with a kosmiche propulsion and deep house finesse.
Seabat have released over five albums and have worked on numerous short film and video scores, notably with NYC artist Peter Burr. Collaborations with Burr include Special Effect (which toured nationally) and Green | Red (taking place under the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO as a live performance, and later premiering as a short at the Film Festivial International Rotterdam).
EARTHMASTERS and FRED DONALSON (BROOKLYN)
New 12" Split LP out on Total Reality Institute will be available at the show.
