CAO & Michael Tan

Live A/V

Peruvian electronic composer and producer CAO and CGI-artist Michael Tan will present The Burial Theme, a mesmerizing audiovisual performance inspired by ancient Moche iconography and cosmology that explores the dualities of life/death, generation/destruction, and cohesion/dispersion cycles.

The Burial Theme examines the ceremonial object of ancient Moche iconography, both in its native context and as an “unearthed object”, which expresses the transience and decay of the natural world. In ancient Moche iconography, this ceremonial object acts as a gate, threshold or geometrical key, signifying the readiness to transfer between worlds (living/dead, vision/blindness, sacred/profane, etc.).
