Imprint Projects collaborated with Diplo and photographer Shane McCauley to create an ethno-musicological installation taking visitors on a journey around the world. Visitors picked songs from Diplo’s favorite regional music blogs via the Sonos controller, activating an 8-projector mapped stream of sound-responsive photos and video from the duo’s adventures documenting the international music scene. Sonos Studio also held a listening party with St Lucia, and premiered Moby’s new album with a rare solo acoustic performance and Q&A.
Kids are developing new genres, new sounds, in their own regional places. I wanted to put these places on the map.
