1994-1995: The Mutant Gene

“The Mutant Gene & Tainted Kool-Aid Sideshow” originated in 1992 as multi-media performance extravaganza. It incorporated live and pre-recorded video (displayed through multiple monitors and projectors), animation, text, midi-sequenced and live instrumental music as well as dramatic artifacts and performance elements. The circus began with the psycho-dramatic confession of an extraterrestrial and journeyed into a series of multi-colored, entropic video and musical landscapes. It was staged at various NYC venues.

A complete written description of the performances was published in LEONARDO (The International Society for the Leonardo Arts, Sciences & Technology), The Special Virtual Reality Section, Volume 27, Issue 4.

The technical demands were pretty exhausting and after awhile I thought it would be very nice to take all the elements and bring them together into one teeny tiny transportable disk. So, I compiled everything into a cd-rom. It was released in 1995 and distributed through 1-800-WEIRDOS.
