Global Groove 2

Presented by CultureHub in association with Setzkasten Wien


Artists Anton “vade” Marini, Benton C Bainbridge, and Tom Zafian, along with guests near and far commemorated and celebrated the life and creativity of Bill Etra and his impact on video art through a 12-hour audiovisual performance jam. Broadcast as a livestream from the CultureHub studio in New York City, audiences in person and online experienced live performances by participating artists who collaborated in person and remotely via CultureHub’s Live Lab intermedia software.

Credited with helping to make video an art form through the invention of the Rutt-Etra synthesizer, Etra made seminal works alongside pioneers like Nam Jun Paik. The Rutt-Etra remains one of visual music’s most playable and powerful instruments, with a once-unique and now oft-emulated luminance displacement effect and distinctive visual timbre. Bill Etra’s media artworks are in the permanent collections of the Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, and the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris.
