The Rhythm Society: Alter Ego
The Rhythm Society has gathered every solstice and equinox since 1995 to celebrate community, diversity and spirit. For the first 10 years our community gathered in Episcopal and Unitarian churches, where we both incorporated and challenged the function of religion as a vehicle for connecting with higher spirit. In the early days we called ourselves The Divine Rhythm Society, and adopted the motto "we welcome all faiths or no faith at all."
Fast forward to 2020, we've had to rethink how we celebrate as a community in the grips of the global pandemic. Our Spring Equinox celebration, called Alter Ego, looked to address our duality and internal conflict as we come to grips with isolation and the awakening of our role in perpetuating racism and discrimination.
For Alter Ego, DJs were asked to play music they don't usually play, and some of us took on an alter ego DJ name — mine was "DJ Amen." This mix of Gospel House connects us to our church roots and celebrates the power and beauty of the divine. Enjoy!
Projection mapping with MadMapper, but controller (OP-Z) went crazy and flipped scenes randomly :(
