Be catapulted into the musical landscape of the future on this night of original hip-hop and visionary algorithms.
KØS and VEGA|ARTS are thrilled to present a free talk and concert with artist Hassan Khan + installation by artist Florence To on June 6, from 7-11 pm at VEGA in Copenhagen as part of the public programme for the exhibition Realistic Utopias at KØS Museum of Art in Public Spaces. A truly unique and immersive night, you should not miss out on!
Khan and curator Irene Campolmi launch the evening by discussing seven elements chosen by the artist to lay out a network of references and associations that inform his algorithmic music installation The Infinite Hip-Hop Song (2019), currently running on KØS forecourt as part of the exhibition Realistic Utopias.
After the talk, you can explore Florence To’s art project in VEGA LAB, which thematically overlaps with Khan’s use of musical language, algorithms and popular culture.
Headlining the evening is Khan’s concert The Infinite Hip-Hop Song Live! An evolving set of fire bars and rhymes, shifting drops, mutating breaks and elastic tunes developed from his algorithmic installation. Using a custom-made interface he moulds the vast database of beats, melodies, bass-lines, and specially written songs recorded in the studio with eleven rappers of diverse backgrounds into a thrilling joyride.
