Featuring immersive sound design from SVBKVLT mainstays 33EMYBW and Gooooose.
ORIENT FLUX is the latest ambitious audio-visual exhibition from London-based psychedelic AV mastermind Weirdcore. Taking place at the T-10 art and culture space in Beijing’s SKP-S, an “avant-garde luxury department store”, the exhibition sees the artist drawing from the science-fiction aesthetic of the cinema and design of the ’70s and ’80s to create a futuristic space port, designed for trips both in time and space.
The exhibition is comprised of seven interconnected installations, beginning and ending in the STELLAR LOUNGE, which SKP-S describe as an ambient portal, and climaxing with a faster-than-light trip on the TRANS-AEON EXPRESS, which allows passengers to embark on their own “spatio-temporal journey”, back into “China’s vivid history.”
Weirdcore has collaborated with producers 33EMYBW and Gooooose, who regular Fact readers will recognise as mainstays of Shanghai label SVBKVLT. They contribute immersive sound design to the artist’s visuals, providing cosmic ambient pieces, sinofuturist soundscapes and sci-fi sound cues to each of the interconnecting installations.
ORIENT FLUX was produced by Kennedy London and features lighting designed by Dave Ross, as well as lasers from ER Productions, both of which have worked closely with Weirdcore on his now iconic visuals for Aphex Twin. For more information about ORIENT FLUX you can visit the exhibition website.
