SHADOW PUPPIES

Electronic Sounds Visions

 

DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Shadow Puppies is an internationally celebrated
cutting edge trio that conjures rich, complex, and entrancing worlds of
electronic sound and vision in real-time. Using electric guitars, an
arsenal of objects, electronics, homebrew computer software, and
original digital technologies, audiences experience an uninterrupted
journey through sonic eruptions, video hallucinations, and aggressive,
entrancing mediascapes.
