Taylor Town

2022  | Live Stream

Description:

Taylor Town was a free in-person/live stream art and music event I organized and ran on December 17, 2022.

Three local Albuquerque bands performed at the show, including a crass opening speech from President Biden (played by myself), electronic music improvisations, stand-up comedy, and a rapper. My goal with Taylor Town was not only to bring local performers together for a fun communal show, but to create “an event within an event” by also integrating story building, interactive art, and video.

Special thanks to Pax and Logan of Tortuga Art Gallery, Eli Glickman, Tahj Sampson, Sol Dean, Joe Dean, Taylor Wright, Ray Whatley, Aimeric Arragon, Alex Harding, Nico Kennedy, and Ethan Haft.

Notes and extras:

"Taylor" was (for the promotional materials) played by my friend and former roommate Taylor Wright (seen in the last few pictures of the above slideshow).

The Taylor Town Interactive Computer Experience was made by Tahj Sampson.

One of my other pieces, League of Extraordinary Homes, was made specifically for the show, and was on display for the audience to interact with.
