Lafawndah x random studio
THURSDAY 30 MAY 2019
For the fourth and final edition of Future Rising 2019, devotional pop polymath Lafawndah collaborates with Amsterdam’s Random Studio to design a holistic interactive experience that pushes the boundaries of how the physical and digital worlds can collide. In the spotlight is Lafawndah’s headlining themed DJ set.
Lafawndah’s journey to her current incarnation has wound as unpredictably as her compositional style. Her live shows have become an ever-evolving testing ground for ruptures in the seamless concert experience, pitting committed humour against relentless physicality - most recently applied to her carefully curated and created HONEY COLONY live concept which debuted in London in December 2018, and her premiere performance at the Barbican, London of Ceremonial Blue with Midori Takada. Through her own self-directed music videos – such as for the recent single Joseph – and forthcoming visual art pieces, Lafawndah continues to grow a cinematic body of work which portrays a fascination with the counterpoints between music, body and space. Lafawndah's music has a spirit of maximalism: an overflow of detail, feeling and ideas. Her debut album ANCESTOR BOY was released via her own imprint CONCORDIA to wide acclaim in March of 2019.
Random Studio is a Dutch creative studio of visual artists, designers, strategists and engineers who collaborate to create immersive experiences - physical and nonphysical - that blur the boundaries between art, design and technology.
Progressive creative platform out of Amsterdam on the front lines of avant-garde culture straddling music, art, fashion and everything in-between, who curate content by influential, carefully selected individuals who can’t be regulated by normative social, political, and/or geographic factors.
