Gray Area presents YACHT with Delta-T / Matthew Biederman & Pierce Warnecke, and IQ.

September 30 @ 9:00 pm - 11:59 pm

$20 – $30

Gray Area Festival 2022 presents a special performance by Los Angeles based band YACHT who will perform their distinctive electro-pop made in collaboration with artificial intelligence.

Working with technologists and leading AI researchers, YACHT uses cutting-edge data analysis tools, machine learning, neural networks, sci-fi instruments, and generative composition strategies to create a new kind of human-machine music—melodies, lyrics, artwork, and videos for their seventh album, putting both the band and the audience’s notions of artistic authenticity to the test.
The day prior, on Thursday, September 29, YACHT will screen its feature documentary The Computer Accent, an exploration of the artists’ work with the intersection of art, technology, and human intuition during the research, composition, and recording of the album Chain Tripping.

Through jumps forward and backward, glitches and stroboscopic accelerations, Delta-Tchallenges preconceptions of time-based compositions such as constant flow, linearity, and irreversibility. This performance by Pierce Warnecke and Matthew Biederman exposes the infinitely small and the magnitude of the infinitely immense which comprise our universe, and suggests perhaps with this perspective we can more appreciate the fragility and beauty of what’s right here within our reach.

Hip-hop producer & DJ Idea Unsound and award-winning instrumentalist Q-Jin join forces as IQ to bring an electro-acoustic performance the likes never before seen. Blending classical Chinese zither with futuristic sound design, IQ is a futuristic story of east-meets-west. Idea Unsound uses visual software to construct beautiful visual FXs live with the electrifying addition of Q-Jin’s amplified zither.
