Check out David Byrne’s Guitar Pedals art installation:
“An interactive art piece consisting of a grid of 96 guitar effects pedals that are wired together, as well as a guitar and an amplifier. As people step on the different pedals they activate various effects, which multiply over one another, creating a dynamic sonic experience.”
On May 31 Eagle Rock Entertainment releases Ride Rise Roar, a documentary film detailing the unique creative process of David Byrne shot over the course of his `08/`09 “Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno” tour.
Having screened at the prestigious Silverdocs, SXSW and Seattle International Film Festivals, Ride Rise Roar is called “a visceral experience” by The Hollywood Reporter while Time Out Chicago notes that “What makes this doc work—besides the fact that Byrne gives a really great show on this tour and uses dancers to liven things up a bit—is the interviews with Byrne, the various noted choreographers…and with the dancers and back-up singers. The doc looks and sounds great.”
