State of the Art

Last night, Tommy and I saw Gotye! It hands down one of the most interesting shows I have ever been to. Not only was he an amazing performer, but every aspect of the stage seems so curated. Gotye drummed and sang and ran around hitting triangles and samplers like a mad scientist, but it all seemed to have a purpose and gave you a sense of how intricate his music really is.

One of my favorite aspects (beside watching him drum, which was amazing) was the animated videos playing behind him. Most of them were his music videos, which are beautiful to begin with, others were new. One of my favorites featured a man peeling off his shirt, then his whole body, becoming a bear, and back to a man again as he repeatedly pulled layers off. Everything felt emotive and set the mood.
