ACRE TV presents: Psychedelicatessen. poster by Kera MacKenzie & Andrew Mausert-Mooney & Matt Mancini

ACRE TV is an artist-made livestreaming tele-vision network featuring live and canned videos, performances, durational works, and experimental broadcasts.  It is run in the collaborative spirit of ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions). ACRE TV programs a series of two-month continuous streams based on a theme.

This season ACRE TV is pleased to present:

Psychedelicatessen
September 1 – October 31, 2014

A cornucopia of psychedelia, a delicate spread of the finest things, delicious and heady, sumptuous and somatic. Food films but also film foods. Cooking shows where the food narrates and the chefs are chevre. A mayonnaise malaise, half Erowid and half Martha Stewart, some things you need a half pound of, others much less.

If television delivers the people, ACRE TV delivers the Soylent Green, thinly sliced and mostly eyes and ears and brains. I stream, you stream, we all stream for mustard paintings and ketchup pairings. I’ve never seen the Food Network, but I assume it’s like this. A perfect time to watch weekly shows, to hear field recordings of fields, to tell the whole world about being a waiter for Godot.

Psychedelicatessen includes live performances by John KilduffThad KellstadtLeslie RogersEllen NielsenAnna IaleggioMark McCloughanJoseph Herring and Amy Ruddick; episodic shows by ElsewhereTara Nelson and Michael Wawzenek; and video works by Alpha Girls (Alma Alloro & Jennifer Chan)Blair BoginJennifer ChanJerstin CrosbyTimothy DMitchell DoseClint EnnsGWC InvestigatorsHooliganshipThad KellstadtJohn KilduffJodie MackJesse MalmedHani MoustafaEllen NielsenBen PoppLeslie RogersAndrew RosinskiBen RussellJoshua Gen SolondzToby TatumMichael WawzenekSean Whiteman and The Whiteman Brothers.

About Robert Beatty
Robert Beatty (b.1981, Lexington, KY) is an artist and electronic musician who performs solo under the name Three Legged Race. He is a long-running member of the bands Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, and C. Spencer Yeh’s Burning Star Core. Through Beatty’s collaboration with video artist Takeshi Murata, Three Legged Race has performed at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China; Deitch Projects, New York; the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh; and the New Museum, New York. In 2013, Beatty released the acclaimed “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” (Glistening Examples), a collection of his audio work for Murata. Beatty’s performances and recordings explore the repetition and decay of simple musical themes, evoking minimalist sci-fi soundtracks, clouded hypnotic landscapes, and primal industrial techno. He lives in Lexington, Kentucky.

Robert Beatty first appeared at Lampo in October 2008, when he premiered a two-movement work, “Falling Order I and II.” In March 2010, he and Takeshi Murata appeared together in the Lampo series, in a live performance and screening co-presented by Lampo and Conversations at the Edge.

About Takeshi Murata
Takeshi Murata (b.1974, Chicago, IL) graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1997 with a BFA in Film/Video/Animation. In 2007, Murata was the subject of a solo exhibition, Black Box: Takeshi Murata, at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC. His work has been included in solo and group shows at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo, Japan; Peres Projects, Los Angeles; Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York; Eyebeam, New York; FACT Centre, Liverpool, UK; Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati; Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh; New York Underground Film Festival; Smack Mellon, Brooklyn; Foxy Production, New York, and Deitch Projects, New York, among others.

About OM Rider (from Electronic Arts Intermix)
In OM Rider, Takeshi Murata deftly weaves the aesthetics of retro-noir, video games, and Italian giallo film into a cinematic exercise in cool, narrative minimalism and distilled rebellion. In a vast desert bathed in neon hues, a misfit lycanthrope blasts syncopated techno rhythms into the night. Meanwhile, an old man sits at a large, round table in a void-like space, rigidly sipping coffee and rolling snake-eyed dice as the faint sound of the werewolf’s pulsating, phantasmic synth grows louder. Hopping on his motorcycle and ripping a bowl, the werewolf tears full speed ahead over forbidding terrain while his hoary counterpart becomes increasingly anxious…

At once opaque and thrilling, OM Rider expands upon Murata’s previous 3D character-based animation and references to horror cinema, benefiting from the integral collaboration of longtime composer Robert Beatty, here joined by musicians Devin Flynn and C. Spencer Yeh.
