“In our fantasy/reality in the future Halluci Nation is a group that breaks off from society to return to natural ways of life… and it’s not just Indigenous People although it’s a movement that is lead by Indigenous People. It’s a movement that is open to anyone who was willing to join and be a part of helping figure stuff out.”
– A Tribe Called Red
The popular hip-hop band A Tribe Called Red goes beyond the boundaries between the traditional and modern worlds. In this work, featuring a group of pow-wow dancers struggling with a group of b-boys in an urban environment, an audio effects gradient allows viewers to change the soundtrack according to where they are looking. Users can mix hip-hop, electronic music and pow-wow sounds to create a personalized audio experience that explores how cultures overlap in modern society.
