120 MINUTES PRESENTS: DEAN BLUNT (of HYPE WILLIAMS) at Elbo Room
by far one of my FAVORITE Artists... if you caught his performance as part of HYPE WILLIAMS when they headlined the first PUBLIC ACCESS party last year, u will def understand... if u didn't, then after this show u will def understand.
check out his most recent release "the redeemer" on hippos in tanks (pretty much the ultimate in perfectly curated labels).
DEAN BLUNT (of HYPE WILLIAMS), artist and musician.
"Everything about Dean Blunt is shrouded in a great puff of obfuscation. Dean Blunt isn't his real name. Hype Williams, the duo he formed with Inga Copeland, is also the name of a famous director, leading the unwary on a wild Google chase. The stories he tells in interviews—about joining the nation of Islam, racoon robbery and so forth—should be taken with a mine of salt. What's he up to? Perhaps the clue lies in a remark he made to The Guardian last year: "The sign of the end of the world is when man is filled with too much information. You're going to have this younger generation who are so fucking tuned in, and their brains are so wired, that we're going to be obsolete." By feeding misinformation and preserving a sense of cryptic wonder about himself, maybe Blunt is looking back to a time when we were less clued up, less fatally tuned in."
