ToDo ToDay: Oliver Laric, Outputmessage, and Richard Pinhas

In his Versions video series, Austrian video artist Oliver Laric seeks the origins of the remix. He interrogates everything from Disney animation stills to comic book iconography, placing corresponding images side by side while a narrator, speaking in a tone inspired by text-to-voice software, speaks lines mined from Henry James, Gertrude Stein, and Jorge Luis [...]

New D.C. Record Label Could Put a Weird Slant on Dance Music

I've been digging a lot of local dance music in recent weeks: Earlier this month, Will Eastman released this awesome remix of the Caribbean, and his buddy, Outputmessage, put out The Infinite Void, an infectious set of deep dance tunes that reach for outer space.

Anoushka’s third album, 2005’s Rise, incorporated genres from around the world, from electronica to jazz, just as her father’s sitar sounds were absorbed by The Beatles. Anoushka still [...]

Watch: Outputmessage’s “Heisenberg (Magic Power Mix)” Video

Southwest D.C., khaki-colored federal wasteland and concrete dingleberry, may be the District's least exciting quadrant. But when D.C. electronic music producer Outputmessage looks out at the taupe buildings and publicly funded shrubbery that surround his apartment, he sees something many do not: an alienlike beauty.
