Coming up this December, The Old Market has a mini festival of what it calls “immersive” gigs. Apparently, the auditorium will be wrapped on all sides with screens and state-of-the-art Fuji Z projectors will show visuals alongside the music. This really sounds interesting and seems a good way of getting the listener into the music without resorting to bulky VR headsets.
They have some big names performing some of these shows. The lineup so far includes.
The Jalapeno Bop: Winter Edition – I don’t know if Jalapeno Bop is a regular club night but it seems to have been around for years. Artists performing include Smoove & Turrell, Wolfgang Valbrun and the Allergies.
Orbital’s Phil Hartnoll – Nuff said.
The Informals II – This is an improvised documentary experience: a two-part event consisting of a gallery exhibition and a one-off live performance by artists Polina Medvedeva and Andreas Kühne, in collaboration with emerging talent from Brighton’s music subcultures.
