Unholy alliance and another way for Coachella to sell out (by unloading part or all of the art budget to a named sponsor), or breath of fresh air after years of Burning Man-sourced art?

At first I felt the former, then the trailer (http://media.thecreatorsproject.com/) had me thinking the latter.

Does this mean no more Do Lab, Tesla Coils and much less fire? Can we still get Bliss Dance and her bodacious curves?

Richie Hawtin is listed under artists - are these the people behind the Plastikman iPhone app failure? Will the ambition be so huge that glitches will abound?

Is this the future of corporate festival sponsorship - melding much more seamlessly than Heineken dome silent discos and AT&T recharge tents?

I'm actually optimistic. As much as i've loved most of the art partners in the past, they were getting a little "same-y". Hopefully some new creative blood will mix things up a little. I also think The Creators Project is less of an actual specific group of artists who work together as a team, and more of a banner that different artists work under (and get sponsored by). So there still might be a lot of variety.

But one way or another, this means we should be getting some interesting projection mapping work. And they say on their site they're going to reveal some of the Coachella art projects in February.

This is the Richie Hawtin link. (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/creators/richie-hawtin)

My point is whether the Creators Project had something to do with his light show and complimentary iPhone app from his Plastikman set last year. The light show was cool, but the app was supposed to allow the audience to interact/influence the lights and maybe even music in subtle ways (in the interview on the above link you he says he really wants to tap into every individual in the audience). It was supposed to be some "next level" sh!t but it pretty much failed.

The iPhone app actually worked for about 3/4 of the set however there wasn't enough people using it to see and hear the effects. At one of his other shows the audience was able to over ride what he was doing on stage and create a wall of sound at certain moments. Plus it was one of the first Plastikman shows.

The Creators Project Announces a Creative Partnership with Coachella

by The Creators Project Staff January 19, 2011

We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that this year we’ll be kicking off 2011 at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival. Coachella has been one of our favorite festivals for years, a must-attend musical celebration of epic proportions. So many legendary concert moments have taken place here—that night Daft Punk unveiled their glowing pyramid, that year they let us see The Pixies, Radiohead and Kraftwerk back to back, the sunset performance that helped turn Arcade Fire into a household name, and unforgettable sets from Prince, Morissey, The Cure, Pavement, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead and so many more.

And now we’re going to be a part of it.

As Coachella’s creative partner, we’ll be collaborating with this seminal festival to re-imagine the festival experience for the next generation. We’re teaming up with select headlining acts from this year’s festival lineup (see the recently released list of performers here) to create new works of art, curating a series of major art installations on the festival grounds, and bringing several of our favorite international musical acts to perform on the Coachella stage for the first time, including: Emicida, EE, and New Pants.

By incorporating cutting edge technology and stunning visual art into the Coachella experience, we hope to add a new layer of creative interpretation to musical expression, as well as bring fans even closer to the music. How will we do that, you ask? Well, we can’t reveal everything just yet, but stay tuned for a HUGE announcement on February 16th where we will unveil details on the artworks and collaborations.

In the meantime, visit the Coachella website for more info and mark April 15-17 on your calendars because this is going to be epicly legendary!

Huh well I bailed before the very end for Gorillaz, but basically I could get on before the set and see the track/beat counter thing, then shortly before it started I got kicked off. Couldn't get back on pretty much the rest of the time I was there (I think it kicked in briefly but no interaction stuff worked). Friends and people around me were having the same trouble.

Anyway, if this is the type of stuff they try to do this year and it works, that would be fantastic.

The Studio launches at Coachella

Last month we announced our creative partnership with Coachella, one of our favorite music festivals. We told you more information would be coming, and while we can’t reveal all the juicy details just yet, we can tell you that the first set of works from The Studio will premiere this April at Coachella.

We are partnering with headlining acts like Interpol and Animal Collective (who will be working with Black Dice) to create a new visual experience to match their live sets.

Returning creators and masters of light technology, United Visual Artists (UVA), are redesigning Coachella’s main stage to create a dynamic canvas for musical performance. We’re also partnering with esteemed UK film director Jonathan Glazer and UK band Spiritualized to produce an experimental light and sound installation.

And this is only the beginning. We’ll be releasing more details about the projects we’re bringing to Coachella, exclusive interviews, photos and videos, as well as insights into the creative process behind these monumental works, as the countdown to the festival ticks away.

Select artwork from Coachella, along with additional work from The Studio, will then travel the world as part of The Creators Project international event series.

and just to put those Spiritualized rumors to bed (if they haven't been already):

I am decidedly on the optimistic/excited side of the fence now, but I do hope they leave room for some BM (or BM-esque) art. People need large-scale metal and fire as much as they need lightshows! For instance, Serpent Mother a few years back was pretty much a nightly campfire providing a nice respite.

looks like Arcade Fire will also be collaborating w/ the Creators Project as well... not to mention collabs in the Sahara as well.


The most prominent addition is the skeleton of the main stage. Designed and operated by British design team United Visual Artists (which has constructed sets for U2 and Massive Attack), the stage has accommodated ambitious live-show sets before - just ask whoever found Roger Waters' inflatable pig in their yard in 2008. But UVA's set makes the stage itself into a spectacle.

The stage will be constructed with a cube of controllable lights, with two wings that retract to open the front of the stage. Between sets, it will glow and shift patterns like a monolithic Rubik's Cube, programmed by the designer and Warp Records recording artist Mira Calix. During sets, UVA will deploy its in-house software to control light effects that add depth and effect to a band's stage presence.

"It's important to have a moment when the stage takes on a personality," said Matt Clark, founder and creative director of UVA. "Hopefully it can be iconic but still be modular and allow the bands to show their own personalities as well."

Top-billed acts including Arcade Fire, Interpol and Animal Collective, however, have incorporated their own lighting designs into UVA's modular stage. Interpol's Friday set will be the first to use a band's master-concept in the rig, and Animal Collective enlisted its experimental-noise peers Black Dice to direct a found-footage montage using UVA's modules to play with the idea of a stadium's Jumbotron. Arcade Fire's Saturday night headlining set will climax in a UVA collaboration with director Chris Milk, who oversaw the band's childhood-nostalgia Web video, "The Wilderness Downtown."

In one corner of the field at this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, fans will find an unlikely structure — a kind of ad-hoc cathedral. There's no atonement for a boozy weekend inside, however.

Instead, beams of light will cascade from the ceiling in a hall filled with ambient white noise. Pass through the light columns and you'll be awash in pieces from the orchestral, emotionally ravaged single "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space" by British band Spiritualized.

"We wanted the light to be the sound," said Jason Pierce, Spiritualized's mastermind. "The objective was to get people physically inside the song."

The Spiritualized installation, called "Meet Me in the Chorus" and helmed by director Jonathan Glazer ("Birth," "Sexy Beast") and the firm Graft Architects, is one of many ways that the festival, starting Friday in Indio, will explore a radical new method of integrating live performance and three-dimensional art.

This year, Goldenvoice collaborated with the Creators Project — a joint venture from Intel and the saucy New York-based media conglomerate Vice encouraging cross-genre artistic and technical collaboration — to revamp the technical infrastructure of the main stage, the dance-inclined Sahara tent and various installation pieces to allow for greater artistic input. The intention is, as Pierce said, to make songs exist in physical space. They'll turn the festival's stages into performers in their own right.

"After the world economy collapsed, it really made us feel like the whole weekend has to deliver," said Paul Tollett, the founder of Goldenvoice, which produces Coachella. "By the end of Sunday you need to have gone through a range of emotions. The experience of the art and the ambience has to play a huge part in that."

The most prominent addition is the new skeleton of the main stage. Designed and operated by the British design team United Visual Artists (who have constructed sets for U2 and Massive Attack alongside installation and gallery work), the stage has accommodated ambitious live-show sets before — just ask whoever found Roger Waters' inflatable pig in their yard in 2008. But UVA's set makes the stage itself into a spectacle.

The stage will be constructed with a cube of controllable lights, with two wings that retract to open the front of the stage. Between sets, it will glow and shift patterns like a monolithic Rubik's Cube, programmed by the designer and Warp Records recording artist Mira Calix. During sets, UVA will deploy its in-house software to control half a dozen light effects that add depth and effect to a band's onstage presence.

"It's important to have a moment when the stage takes on a personality," said Matt Clark, founder and creative director of UVA. "Hopefully it can be iconic but still be modular and allow the bands to show their own personalities as well."

Top-billed acts including Arcade Fire, Interpol and Animal Collective, however, have incorporated their own lighting designs into UVA's modular stage. Interpol's Friday set will be the first to use a band's master-concept in the rig, and Animal Collective enlisted its experimental-noise peers Black Dice to direct a found-footage montage using UVA's modules to play with the idea of a stadium's Jumbotron. Arcade Fire's Saturday night headlining set will climax in a UVA collaboration with director Chris Milk, who oversaw the band's ambitious and unexpectedly moving childhood-nostalgia Web video, "The Wilderness Downtown."

"It's easy, though, to lose track of the humanity if you just start showcasing tech," Milk said. "I love the contradiction of cold high-tech that's incredibly emotional when used in the right context. It's essentially human nostalgia produced by the most advanced technology available today. Million-dollar satellites, photo-mapping cars, HTML5, a series of tubes — all to take you back emotionally to the place where you started."

As dance music has crossed over into pop and indie rock, the Sahara tent's light rigging will similarly entice novices and seasoned electronica heads. Brazilian designer Muti Randolph will re-cast hanging light panels — each synced in patterns to the music — from his São Paolo, Brazil, club D-Edge to an entirely new audience.

This kind of cross-genre artistic collaboration (one that turns the dancing-about-architecture adage on its head) is the goal of Creators Project, which has its biggest public palette yet at Coachella. It also represents a broader vision for Vice, which has transformed from a field manual of hipster contrarianism into a media business — flush with new venture capital funds — pursuing gonzo investigative journalism and, now, installation art and design.

"When we get back from shooting documentaries in North Korea and Liberia, this is the fun stuff we turn to," said Shane Smith, co-founder of Vice. "Art makes life better, and it doesn't have to be experienced in a snooty gallery."

And at this year's Coachella, both the sound and space can claim to be groundbreaking art. "Too often, live show technology is just about how big your screen is," Clark said. "We come from using negative space. We want to use it for a deeper understanding of the music."

The Creators Project's ethos pairs artists with each other and next-generation technologies. Arcade Fire, for example, worked with director Chris Milk on a video-based project called "Summer Into Dust" that Smith says excitedly will have an "insane reveal moment."

I'm giving them a C+ so far on this...maybe expectations got raise to high. My report:

- Untitled was not open when we got to field at around 2pm. Event staff at door said it was supposed to open at 11am but they were still working on it. Anyone know if it eventually opened?

- Interpol supposed special collab w/ Creators was very meh. Not groundbreaking.

- Sahara overhead lights did not seem to be working for Boize Noize

And I do miss me the Burning Man-inspired fire installations/artwork.

Looking forward to some better stuff from them today, esp Animal Collective.

Creators project needs to come back every year

PlayaDelWes
04-19-2011, 12:52 PM
If they do come back every year, I would hope that all projects are more inclusive than 'untitled' was. For such a prominent and promoted display, I can't imagine a very large % of people had a chance to visit inside. The limited hours / late start only made it more exclusive.

frizzlefry
04-19-2011, 05:53 PM
I agree, Untitled was amazing but the fact that a very small percentage of the festival actually got to enjoy it is rather dissapointing, maybe if they had it in the campgrounds, open a little later than the fest was? They would have to security watching it though for most of the night. Overall the Creator's Project was a success in my eyes, the Coachella Stage collaborations were unreal, Arcade Fire's set was just beyond words, same with the Sahara installation. Kind of underwhelmed with Animal Collective however, especially after the insane intro, felt like there was just a heavy reliance on the visuals coming from the screens and the cubes hanging above them, not enough use of the entire stage imo, I honestly think Primus' hallucinogenitics tour had an almost equivalent setup.

I got in Untitled/Undisclosable during a long band dry spell on Sunday. The line seemed long but only took me about 25 minutes to get through.

It had light ports you looked up at and if you stared long enough it would transform your body, sometimes drastically, depending on how much you were concentrating on the light and music.

Not true. I doubt any of it was natural light.

A couple friends of mine went in during Arcade Fire and their pictures look the same as mine.

OK, my real comments:

There were speakers all over the ground playing a loop of a section of the song "Ladies and Gentlemen we are Floating in Space" by Spiritualized. It was peaceful and relaxing.

According to a friend what saw it in each different light box you were supposed to have certain layers of the song highlighted... though I suppose due to my lack of aural focus I never heard any difference. Or maybe it is because I have heard the song a million times and mentally fill in/rebalance the song (sometimes using the full Elvis version.)

At any rate I liked it but was also a little let down.

The Creators Project Returns To New York (http://thecreatorsproject.com/blog/the-creators-project-returns-to-new-york)

by The Creators Project Staff July 18, 2011


http://assets.thecreatorsproject.com/blog_article_images/images/000/016/129/KO_glances_right_slide.jpg?1310999287

Last year, we took over Milk Studios in New York City to give you the launch party of all launch parties (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-new-york-city-2010), showcasing works and performances by M.I.A. (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/blog/mia-it-was-amazing-and-its-a-wrap), Interpol (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/creators/interpol), Spike Jonze (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/creators/spike-jonze), Radical Friend (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/creators/radical-friend), and Nick Zinner (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/creators/nick-zinner). It was one of those memorable events that people are still talking about, and has permanently cemented NYC in our hearts.
This year, New York (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-new-york-2011) is the last stop on our whirlwind global tour that began at Coachella (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-coachella-2011) this April, toured through Lyon (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-nuits-sonores-2011), Paris (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-la-ga%C3%AEt%C3%A9-lyrique-2011), and will be hitting São Paulo (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-s%C3%A3o-paulo-2011), Seoul and Beijing (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-beijing-2011), before heading back to the Big Apple to bring it all full circle.
Following last year’s launch in New York, The Creators Project’s return will feature a Karen O (http://www.yeahyeahyeahs.com/) psycho-opera, an assault on the tragic joys of youth. Directed by Adam Rapp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Rapp), the work will be produced by The Studio (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/studio), a multimillion-dollar global studio launched this year by The Creators Project that produces and distributes works from artists representing a cross-section of creative disciplines. The premiere will take place at the critically acclaimed St. Ann’s Warehouse (http://stannswarehouse.org/).
Stay tuned to our blog (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/blog) and event page (http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/events/the-creators-project-new-york-2011) for updates about the performance.

I doubt Creators Project is going anywhere in regard to Coachella...Vice is certainly a brand growing in both wealth and cultural reach according to this article:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffbercovici/2012/01/03/tom-frestons-1-billion-revenge-ex-viacom-chief-helps-vice-become-the-next-mtv/

I just hope Coachella still integrates a little art curated from other sources (i.e. Burning Man). But Creators Project (solely funded by Intel to the tune of "tens of millions," according to the article) has the money to continue making bigger and better installations/band collaborations each year.

Kings and noblemen used to be patrons of the artist, now it is our corporate overlords.

Creators Project helped with the visuals for Amon Tobin's ISAM tour, which may or may not be part of his show at Coachella. The poster just says "Amon Tobin", but coachella.com/lineup says "Amon Tobin: ISAM Live". I don't really know if that means anything, though. Personally really hope they're able to bring out the full visuals, and that creators will be able to bring more great stuff to the fest.

So....maybe they're going to be too busy to do stuff for Coachella?


The Creators Project will be kicking off their 2012 programming with a 2-day event in San Francisco, their first-ever stand-alone event in the US outside of New York City. The Project is a global initiative headed by both Intel and VICE, intended to support creativity, and supports artists in realizing their creative visions through technology. The interactive and visual event showcases the interaction between art and technology to thousands of visitors and features bands, films, workshops and original multimedia works by The Studio (the Creators Project’s content-creation studio), as well as a number of installations.

After hosting Creators Project festivals in Beijing, Sao Paulo, New York, Paris, Lyon and Seoul, the event will take over the Bay Area at the historic Fort Mason on March 17th and 18th. The line-up, RSVP information and schedule will be released in the next few weeks. For more information, click here.
