Crow / Horn

18+ @ REDCAT Theater, Aug 23

20 August 2014

LA’s Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT) will be hosting an audio-visual work by LA duo 18+ on August 23 at 8:30pm.

The interdisciplinary contemporary arts center located directly inside the Walt Disney Concert Hall complex brings in internationally renowned artists each season to take over the incredible presentation space, and Saturday night will be dedicated to Justin and Samia of 18+.

The collaborative duo use everything from audio and video to social media and live performance, operating anonymously and breaking down the boundaries between ‘original’ and ‘pirated’ content to explore “fundamental issues of identity, gender, intellectual property and the role of the body in a post-human or post-internet era”.

This event comes on the footsteps of the 18+’s latest 2-song EP, ‘Crow / Horn’, and their acclaimed mixtape trilogy. For their stint at REDCAT, the duo pairs audio and video material culled from their multiple online platforms, including twitter, Facebook, tumblr, YouTube, and mediafire.

18+ releases ‘Crow / Horn’ on Houndstooth, Aug 4

4 August 2014

Underground duo 18+ release their latest two-song EP, titled ‘Crow / Horn’, on August 4 on famous London electronic label, Houndstooth Records.

The low-profile pair of cross-disciplinary artists, producers and performers have yet to put out an official long-playing release but have been making a steady stream of good tracks over the past years, including their acclaimed mixtape trilogy (of which only MIXTA2E and MIXTA3E are online).

There’s also an endless catalogue of appropriated sounds and video footage on their YouTube account and a track (‘Bitch feat. C Powers‘) inspired by one of few live performances at last year’s Venice Biennale.

They round off the summer with the sleazy vocals and minimal electronics of ‘Crow’ and ‘Horn’, both appearing online in the past, but now cut and mastered by Matt Colton of London’s legendary AIR Studios
