Techo Chapel

Seth Davis, Colin Mosely and the Kansas City Electronic Music Arts Alliance are excited to share Techno Chapel, a 50 minute multimedia interactive performance at Charlotte Street’s Capsule performing space on Saturday, September 28, 2019.

The evening of live, experimental musical performances begins at 7:00 PM and is a FREE event intended for all audiences. Parking for the show can be located behind Capsule (located at 1664 Broadway Blvd) and can be found off of 17th Street. Street parking is also available on Washington Street, a block behind Capsule.

Davis and Mosely presented their first Audio Visual Performance, Swampthing September 2018 at La Esquina as a part of the Kansas City Performing Media Festival. As a follow up, Techno Chapel utilizes note and volume detection, in order to facilitate interactions between the musicians and the visuals comprised of videos of insects, human bodies, forests and computers. By allowing the audience a space to reflect upon how networks communicate, Techno Chapel aims to ask the question how are humans communicating with digital, vegetal and animal bodies and how are we all connected?

Techno Chapel is a part of a larger trend of interdisciplinary and collaborative work between composers, choreographers, dancers and visual artists who use technology to facilitate new experiences with the natural world that heighten the involvement of other animals, plants and minerals. The musical composition is led by composer and musician Seth Andrew Davis along with local music ensemble Project C4. The interactive video is animated and programmed by video artist Colin Mosely. Techno Chapel also includes an additional solo performance by Barry Anderson, a Kansas City based artist working in video, music, photography and animation.

Participating Artists: Seth Davis, Colin Mosely, Project C4, Barry Anderson, Project C4 Consists of Derek Frank, Dylan Ward, Hao Yin, Gabbi Roderer, Tim J Harte, and Seth Andrew Davis
