VIDEODROOM: MOON DUO PRESENTS 'STARS ARE THE LIGHT' ft. visuals by Emmanuel Biard
Psychedelic krautrock and electronic drones: that was the nutshell version of how we’d describe the musical exploits of Erik ‘Ripley’ Johnson (Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada. As Moon Duo, since 2009 these artists have been exploring all manner of occult universes that we mere mortals could never set foot in. On their new album 'Stars Are The Light', the duo explores seventies funk and nineties rave. Their world tour starts in Vooruit, supported live by an even mind-expanding light show by visual artist Emmanuel Biard.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to circumstances beyond any control, the dedicated light installation for Moon Duo will not arrive in time for the show tonight. We are currently working with Emmanuel Biard to assemble a suitable replacement visual show that will be used this evening. We want to apologize in advance for this inconvenience. However, we want to stress that the show will still be a mind-altering experience of light and sound. Thanks for understanding!
Moon Duo's seventh album ‘Stars Are The Light’, released on September 27, is one big hallucinogenic, repetitive trip, and marks an exploration of unknown territories. Johnson's recognizable guitar sound and Yamada's trippy synths and ditto vocals remain, but get a hefty disco injection. Sanae about the album: “We have changed, the nature of our collaboration has changed, the world has changed, and we wanted the new music to reflect that.”
For ‘Stars Are The Light’, they’ve teamed up with Emmanuel Biard. In the past the British artist has made light-installations for live shows by the Scottish producer Koreless and club icon Lotic - his ‘Endless Power’ was part of the programme of this year’s OUT THE FRAME. Moon Duo and Biard will be bringing their first collaboration to our Theaterzaal in Vooruit as part of VIDEODROOM. Exclusive Belgian show and European premiere!
