Rival Consoles ‘Persona’ Live A/V Set

May 19, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Gray Area and DJ Dials present Rival Consoles, a brand new live audio-visual accompanying his new album, ‘Persona,’ set for release on April 13th, 2018 via Erased Tapes.

The title ‘Persona’ was inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s film of the same name, specifically a shot in the opening credits of a child reaching out to touch a woman’s face on a screen, which is shifting between one face and another. This powerful image struck Rival Consoles aka Ryan Lee West and it inspired the album’s main theme – an exploration of the persona, the difference between how we see ourselves and how others see us, the spaces in between; between states, people, light and dark, the inner persona and the outer persona.

The increasingly dynamic live audio-visual show, born from bespoke performances at the Tate and for Boiler Room at the V&A Museum featuring self-programmed visuals in Max/MSP, has propelled him to play around the world. Ryan launches ‘Persona’at London’s XOYO on 12th April with further dates to be announced.
