New York indie rockers Interpol will collaborate with filmmaker David Lynch during their Coachella performance this year.
The band’s label, Matador, has details on their site. It appears the band will not only collaborate with Lynch, but also Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy, all of whom will “present a visual juxtaposition of the seen and the unseen.”
The collaboration’s concept centers on the increasing abundance of cameras in daily life, which cause us “to lose ownership of our own images. Anonymous technology is analyzing, categorizing and archiving our very existence,” writes Matador. “The presentation will explore the deepening layers of covert surveillance, morphing data acquisition into visual beauty and questioning the fine line between the viewer and the voyeur.”
The presentation will premiere David Lynch’s animation “I Touch A Red Button Man” for Interpol’s “Lights” and use “real-time visual manipulation” from Seattle-based HPX.
Everything will be streamed live to the net and the Coachella audience.
Intrepol and company take the Coachella stage at 7:25 p.m. on Friday, April 15.
