After a great year in 2011 we are starting 2012 with something a little different in the form of Immersiv. Immersiv are a duo of experimental film makers/artists from Germany for do some really great visual work and this Saturday in Shelter they are transforming the DJ booth into something quite different. Im not going to give too much away but make sure you get down to the first Sub-Culture session of 2012 for something fresh, both musically and visually. There’s a great interview with them here courtesy of Shanghai247.
This month’s poster was also designed by Immersiv and, as always, screen printed by Idle Beats. Idle Beats have put their own little twist on the Immersiv design to create a great poster to kick off what is going to be quite a year. Check smartshanghai later today for a chance to win 1 of 3 posters. We can also now reveal that next month’s poster is going to be designed by one of China’s best comic artists – Chairman Ca! More info on this in the coming weeks, but needless to say we are very honored that he has agreed to do our next poster!
Saturday 14th January – Sub-Culture: Immersiv
Line Up: Immersiv (visuals), Tzu Sing, Drunk Monk, dji, Steven Lorenz, ChaCha, Didje, George Wyndham
For the first Sub-Culture of 2012 we thought we’d kick things off a little different and, instead of a musical headliner, this months guests will be visual artists Immersiv from Germany.
Experimental film maker Deveroe Aurel & designer Robin Steps, AKA Immersiv, are two visual artists who have been working together since 2010. Using computer generated video sources and custom build 3D models, they synchronise their visual world with the music to create a completely new audio/visual experience. Having taken over clubs in Berlin and all around Europe, its their time to infect Shanghai’s Shelter!
Joining the Sub-Culture crew behind the decks will be Stockholm Syndrome’s Tzu Sing
