CO-PRESENTED WITH
RED BULL MUSIC FESTIVAL NEW YORK

CREATED BY
SOPHIA BROUSDAVE HARRINGTONWILD DOGS INTERNATIONAL

A dazzling collision of mesmeric light, color and sound, Red Bull Music Festival New York and Pioneer Works present the live reimagining of Bryon Gysin and William Burroughs’ seminal experiential invention, the dream machine. Described by Gysin as “the world’s first work of art designed to be viewed with eyes closed,” the dream machine brought about vivid hallucinations of brilliant color through the repeat exposure of high-intensity flicker light. In this immersive concert installation, multi-instrumentalist/composer Dave Harrington, musical director and chanteuse Sophia Brous and designers Wild Dogs International come together to create an extended live meditation on the landmark invention, combining high-intensity strobe, immersive lighting and ceiling projection and a live dream soundtrack performed by an exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime gathering of music luminaries.

Performers include the legendary Moroccan Sufi trance ensemble The Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar, industrial pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, British cellist and electronic producer Oliver Coates, harpist Zeena Parkins, drummer Greg Fox, bassist Trevor Dunn and more very special guests to be announced. An unrepeatable event, best experienced lying down with eyes closed.
