Dan Deacon is one of 2007’s most hotly tipped new leftfield-pop artists who has already had features in just about all the UK’s leading style press.
Ultimate Reality is a collaborative performance by Baltimore’s Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche, a clip from which (Crystal Cat) has already made it into Q Magazine’s ‘10 Best Clips Of The Month’ with a 4/5 review.
It combines an intense musical composition for electronics and drums with a psychedelic montage of Arnold Schwarzenegger films that is projected at a monumental scale. The live energy of the performance has allowed the piece to freely move between art and music venues and grant it a wide audience of appreciation.
The forty minute music composition, written by Dan Deacon, blasts from three sets of loudspeakers during
performance. Driving and cinematic, the electronic piece is accompanied by two live drummers who pound a marching rhythm. The footage was appropriated by Jimmy from Schwarzenegger classics such as Terminator 2 and Total Recall to accompany the composition for Ultimate Reality. Jimmy has transformed the violent struggles of these
films into a mesmerizing sequence of fantastic images where popular science fiction icons seep in and out of mirrored layers of kaleidoscopic colour.
’Using a mix of film shows, sped-up voices and his own aptitude for physical comedy, he’s like Robin Williams
impersonating the Aphex Twin, but more unsettling.’ (The Guardian)
