K-Town - Listen To Your Heart



December 1-22, 2011 with Reception on Thursday, December 1 at 7pm


K-Town is a video and performance based event by Luke Painter and Meera Margaret Singh that transforms Ed Video Gallery into a karaoke lounge. Inspired by karaoke culture and the often disparate and melodramatic video content that accompanies singing in karaoke bars, artists have been invited to create video and animation content to musical hits of their choosing. With a catalogue of over 30 songs, the public can sing along to their favourite tunes while enjoying the visual treatment of these songs by selected artists and designers. Echoing the current and pervasive adaptation and transformation of on-line content, K-Town irreverently takes pre-existing popular songs and asks artists to remix and respond to them using a variety of visual means.
