The a/v duo’s first return to Pittsburgh since playing the 2010 VIA Festival, they have toured together extensively performing at venues including MoMA/PS1, Walker Art Center, and Wexner Center for the Arts.

On tour supporting his his highly-praised, most recent release “R Plus Seven” acclaimed electronic musician and composer OPN assembles the sounds of corporate design – the sort found in commercial transitions, background music, and instructional videos – into songs that are as moving as they are conceptual. Awe, doom, and wonder arise from a range of referents – pipe organs and horns to the abstract, synthesized cues for soundtracked emotions.

Video artist Nate Boyce’s live improvised visuals consist of mutating CGI forms – appearing as modernist sculpture or consumer products – morphing in disorienting virtual space. Like OPN, he uses found text, the names of towns made enigmatic and website banners cut up and layered throughout like visual poetry.

Dutch E Germ’s music borrows bits from contemporary dance and rearranges them into forms that should be unwieldy but hold up anyway. Deconstructing rap tropes – his demolitions are intricate – every sound is purposeful and clear, executed with the uncomfortable brightness of vapourwave aesthetics. – Resident Advisor

“Starting out drumming hardcore punk in mid-90s Washington DC, his band Gang Gang Dance released some of underground rock’s most awesome statements. With Lizzie Bougatsos and Brian DeGraw, he vitalised the staid DIY / indie scene with total rhythmic radicalism, world musical parity and lots of hallucinogenics and far-out ideas.” – Dummy Mag
