Los Angeles based duo Lucky Dragons (Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck) create performative works incorporating musical orchestration, live mixed video, and audience collaboration in a non-hierarchical multi-media spectacle. In conjunction with Zero1 Biennial’s performance series 9 Evenings, Lucky Dragons will perform their live score and multi-channel video work, written for four Bay Area flute players and a moiré pattern video feedback mixing program. Actual Reality is a term that is used as a foil to reflect upon nuanced degrees of the imaginary. In this performance, Lucky Dragons develops a multi-layered work, resynthesizing recordings of past iterations of the piece as presented in slightly different forms, uncentering the original work and allowing us to bounce between the various live and echoed components.
Presented as part of the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial performance series with support from the James Irvine Foundation.
