Adolescent Sessions: Security Camera Concerts
Viva-Radio‘s Adolescent Sessions turns the idea of a concert inside-out. The monthly event, held at Brooklyn’s UnionDocs creates a private, voyeuristic spectacle out of what would normally be a public affair. The show is viewed live, but there’s a barrier between the performers and the audience. Bands are secluded in a basement studio and the audience watches the video feed in a nearby screening room. The effect is at once both compelling and cold. The surveillance camera style split screen gives you intimate views of the band, but at the loss of any interaction with the crowd.
