Office Hours is a dance party and live video performance from a collective of disc-jockeys, wave technicians and visual artists at UNC-Chapel Hill.
10% of proceeds will benefit the Compass Center.
Starting as the final assignment for an independent study within UNC's Media and Journalism school, this experimental audio-visual performance was the brainchild of producer Nicholas Byrne. Bridging his early musical background with professional experience as a video editor for record labels, Nicholas envisioned a live show in which musical and visual elements were crafted side-by-side, complementing and reacting to each other for a more holistic sensory experience.
Artists Scott Diekema, Elinor Walker, and Webb Hinton joined Nicholas to develop Office Hours' unique visual style. Scott, Nicholas, and fellow VJs John Vance and Maxwell Bryn use video synthesizers to mix and distort the show's live camera feeds with VHS and digital animations. Audio reactive analog visuals are painted onto a network of CRT televisions that invite audience participation. The team's expertise in animation, live video software, and stage design allow for Office Hours to experiment with emerging and legacy technologies simultaneously.
Collaborators include Elinor Walker, Amy Vaughn, Roi Plotkin, James Creissen, Michael Gu, Maxwell Bryn, John Vance, Austin Robichaud, Gentry Fitch, Karma, J Dasani, and Funeral.
By blurring audio-visual boundaries, Office Hours aims to create a fun and immersive concert experience.
