Beige and Paper Rad Performance
Friday 17th, 9 till late

'What Joe Satriani is on guitar, The 8-Bit Construction Set are on Atari!' Drax (Bodenstandig)
'It rocks.' - Matthew Herbert
'... a testimony to nerdiness.' - The New York Times
'... mouthwatering slice of retro genius' - Pelicanneck

For the first time ever in the UK White Diamond Projects brings together the artist/performance groups Paper Rad and Beige for two nights of analogue and digital confusion with old Atari and Commodore 8-bit computers, homemade 'Star Trek'-like films, mind bending animations, sophisticated electronic dance music made on retro technology and an answering-machine message from a band member's mother.

Beige, a loose knit crew of 4 members, Joe Beuckman, Cory Arcangel, Joseph Bonn, and Paul B.Davis formed in 1997. Together they have pioneered the practice of hacking obsolete 8-bit computers and video systems they find in the trash to make art. The NYTimes called them nerds in 2001, and voted them 'best moments in art' in 2002; XLR8R called their work 'genius'; Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky) said they were 'dope, dope, dope, dope'.
