USA- New York, NY | Aug 21 2012 | (18:53:56 - EDT)
The Creators Project, a global initiative by Intel and VICE, announces the launch of Yeasayer's staging design by Creator Casey Reas on their fall tour, premiering on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."
Check out Casey Reas's "alienscape, crystalline" stage design from the performance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," and exclusive behind-the-scenes photos of the stage and the band, as well as an interview with Casey Reas.
Yeasayer recently approached The Creators Project to help them turn their stage show into an immersive experience of light and color. They enlisted software art pioneer Casey Reas to conceive the design and visuals for the band's fall tour with help from architecture and design firm Aranda/Lasch, video artist Yoshi Sodeoka, and custom software from Reas and Aaron Meyers. The set will travel with Yeasayer through all of their fall tour dates.
In addition, you can watch an exclusive video teaser with frontman Chris Keating, discussing the unique stage design on The Creators Project website.
Stay tuned for a complete profile on the Yeasayer tour and making of the stage, coming to The Creators Project Official YouTube Channel in September!
