On Fri, 11.7.2014, 13h, the same day as their performance at NK, Mico Rex will give a public artist talk in the scope of 3DMIN and the computational art class of UdK Berlin:
Universität der Künste Institut für zeitbasierte Medien, Grunewaldstraße 2, Schöneberg, 10823 Berlin, Germany. Free entrance.
From their webpage (we had to ommit the blinking, check it out yourself):
Mico Rex is an experimental electro-pop mexican duo founded in 2010 by Ernesto Romero and Jorge Ramírez, pionners in live programming in Mexico.
Described as sticky, melodic and danceable, within a kaleidoscope of styles such as 8bits/glitch, oldschool/electro, romantic style,punk, geek, breakz, fresh, bolero, vocal, finura, 80’s from the future!!!
The live performance is a combination of structured pieces and improvisation with code accompanied with voice and home-made controllers in pain.
The sound design, structure and composition are made upon programming code for hardware and software developed by the group members themselves. They consider code as the most flexible media for live electronics performance.
