The duo Walls has been asked by the Tate Modern to compose the title track for “Touch and Vision,” a visual art installation likened to an ”immersive and psychedelic fairground ride.” The installation, created by Orange Dot, David Kraftsow and Jack Thomas, is part of Tate Tanks series of events.
The “Touch and Vision” installation explores how sound affects the way people respond to extra-sensory elements. Using yooouuutuuube.com, a customised version of YouTube, Kraftsow’s viral video app allows visitors to control wall-to-wall projections by swiping, scrolling and dragging their fingers across digital touch pads.
The installation can be seen this Sunday, August 26, at the Bankside Power Station, a structure that once held a million gallons of oil, redesigned by architects Herzog + de Meuron. The Tanks consist of two large circular spaces for performances and film installations, plus a number of smaller rooms.
Walls’ work here is wondrously hypnotic—their very own brand of warm, fuzzy ambient electronica. And it pairs phenomenally well with the “Touch and Vision” visuals, which are incredibly psychedelic.
