dream machine



A live reimagining of Brion Gysin and William Burroughs' seminal experiential invention, the dream machine. Described by Gysin as "the world’s first work of art designed to be viewed with eyes closed," the dream machine brought about vivid hallucinations of brilliant color through the repeat exposure of high-intensity flicker light. In this immersive concert installation, improvisational live music merges with high-frequency strobe and immersive video projection for a live event to be viewed with closed eyes.
