DrmBt is the audio and visual design output of Vincent Theodore, a Chicago based artist, musician, DJ and Producer. Working alone or with collaborators, it is the aim of DrmBt to provide a challenging encounter at the point of experience, engaging an audience through liminal content and sub-liminal texture.
Exploring the intersection of video, light, and sound, Vincent works with traditional and electronic instruments, DJ and controllerist processes, DMX and MIDI protocols, and projections to create unique visual/acoustic textures, dance music, and video mapped environments.
This web portal is home to the network of projects, collaborators, events and portfolio work under the DreamBait umbrella. This includes Vincent's various musical endeavors and design work, the live event production and curation of Canvas Chicago, the home of Shivaree Studios -Dreambait's audio production arm, and access to the Voyager, a new year's celebration curated by DreamBait.
Dozens is the collective song, sound, and performative curation of Vincent Theodore, Kyle Mann, John Norman, Charles Otto and Tim Walsh. Together, they orchestrate music and multi-media works, exploring organic and digital processes of creation.
Forming in Chicago in 2009, Dozens' live performance aesthetic incorporates computer networking, projection mapping and interactive feedback between the performers, the music, the visual environment, and the audience to create a unique, immersive experience.
Summer Love is the second single from Rare Form, a long playing exploration of sound, technology and our modern relationships to them and to each other.
The accompanying video is a production by DrmBt utilizing a process called Data Moshing to obfuscate the acts of love and lust. An impressionistic melding of flesh and egos paints a jarring narrative, as graphic acts are abstracted just beyond intelligibility.
