On Friday, August 16, 2013, Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum welcomes Psychic TV for a rare performance at New Hazlett Theater. Fronted by performance artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Psychic TV (born out of industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle) has made innovative and provocative music for over three decades, blending elements of psychedelia and dance with industrial sounds.
The performance will be preceded by the debut screening of a new film, marking the 30th anniversary of Psychic TV’s second album, DREAMS LESS SWEET. Featuring the work of 47 artists, PSYCHIC TV: DREAMS LESS SWEET is a collectively created video work designed to accompany the album.
The film includes a red/cyan anaglyph 3D sequence produced by Maximus Clarke. Clarke’s segment incorporates stereoscopic video footage captured by the artist during a nighttime journey on the Seattle monorail system.
The film and performance are presented in connection with the exhibition Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: S/HE IS HER/E, on view from June 15 to September 15, 2013, at the Warhol Museum.
The screening of PSYCHIC TV: DREAMS LESS SWEET, and the live Psychic TV performance that follows, are both part of the Warhol Sound Series. The event takes place at the New Hazlett Theater, beginning at 8 PM.
