On June 21, American artist and electronic musician Three Legged Race (Robert Beatty) closes out Lampo's Spring 2014 season with a performance and screening of new and recent work, as well as sound and video collaborations with artist Takeshi Murata, including the Chicago premiere of OM Rider and a new video piece commissioned by Lampo.
Robert Beatty is an artist and electronic musician who performs solo under the name Three Legged Race. He is a long-running member of the bands Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, and C. Spencer Yeh's Burning Star Core. Through Beatty's collaboration with video artist Takeshi Murata, Three Legged Race has performed at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China; Deitch Projects, New York; the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh; and the New Museum, New York. In 2013, Beatty released the acclaimed "Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata" (Glistening Examples), a collection of his audio work for Murata. Beatty's performances and recordings explore the repetition and decay of simple musical themes, evoking minimalist sci-fi soundtracks, clouded hypnotic landscapes, and primal industrial techno. He lives in Lexington, Kentucky.
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art, and intermedia projects. Visit www.lampo.org.
