TUNDE ADEBIMPE, BART HIGGINS, COURTNEY SMITH, IVAN NAVARRO – OIDO / HR-20 / CD / 2013
TV On The Radio front-man Tunde Adebimpe meets Bart Higgins (Emergency Party) to team-up with visual artists Iván Navarro & Courtney Smith in the creation of the unique experience of OÍDO: An Experiment in Sound and Sculpture. Navarro and Smith built an ensemble of several sculpture works that were wired with microphones and effects to be used as one-of-a-kind instruments for a live performance featuring Adebimpe & Higgins: the result was a multi-fronted improvisational show with voice and percussion played on strangely lit mirror-works and gorgeous quasi-furniture. Recorded live at the Saints Peter & Paul Theater in Brooklyn, NY, all proceeds from its sales will benefit Brooklyn’s Public School #84. Published by HR in a vinyl edition of 100 copies and a CD edition of 500 copies. The CD includes a bonus track and video of the live performance.
