Diplo launches multimedia art exhibit
You already know that Diplo is multi-talented - the DJ, rapper, producer and songwriter has proved he's got a few musical tricks up his sleeve. Now, he's collaborated with filmmaker and photographer Shane McCauley for "Blow Your Head," a multimedia art exhibition, which will do just that.
You'll find the exhibit at Sonos Studio, a gallery that has been acoustically-designed to allow visitors a unique experience that fuses art, music and technology. The "musical journey" just opened Sep. 4 and will be up through Oct. 6. According to Vibe, Diplo and McCauley were both on hand for a Q&A session at the unveiling.
Spin magazine explained that visitors enter a simple room with white walls and a ceiling that's lined with acoustic foam. Then, they are able to choose songs off Diplo's favorite music blogs. Immediately, the track begins blaring out of the gallery's speaker system, with corresponding photos and video clips from Diplo and McCauley's trips around the world projected onto the walls.
