[Sosolimited remixing the 2004 presidential debate]
Tuning in to a presidential debate might not seem like the most enticing way to spend a Friday night — commentary on foreign policy is a total buzz kill — but the Institute of Contemporary Art hopes you might re-consider.
On Friday, the museum hosts "Experiment: reConstitution with Sosolimited," where visual arts troupe Sosolimited will present a live remix of presidential debate No. 1, mixing words and images from the debate with light and sound, according to the ICA website. In 2004, the group did the same thing with the debates between John Kerry and George W. Bush. This Friday's event at the ICA will kick-off two more live debate remixes in NYC and Washington, D.C.
Judging by Sosolimited's website and the photo above, you can expect three dudes in black suits spinning at a turntable with a projection screen behind them. ICA spokesperson Joyce Linehan says they're going to track both Obama's and McCain's speech and repetition patterns as well. Creative for sure, but it doesn't sound very danceable.
So while you're there, check out the local DJs spinning in the lobby, the food and drink, and, of course, the voter registration table.
