fierce blending of Electronica, using all the ammunition in the pop
culture canon, to create a representation of your best night's dreams.
A seamless blend of live and recorded music. Portrait of a
DJ as a young artist. Like a Be In but about Now, (without
forgetting about yesterday). Receptors on full, jacked right into the neural
net, just on the edge of sensory overload. In the pre millennial
age we need to come together, if not to a higher sense of consciousness,
at least into a state of conscious, an awareness of the things going on
around you, and there it is Future Perfect. Not tomorrow, just today.
Future Perfect is a sound system, integrating music, abstract sound, video and light to create an environment. A cross cultural concept mixing classic and popular electronica, tape loops, found sounds and concept music. To create a trance inducing soundscape, and presenting it in a challenging and interesting environment: DJ's, musicians, visual artists, and social historians working together to define a new musical frontier, while showing the world in which we live, in a different light.
Perfect is organized and orchestrated by Chris Strouth but
it is the combination of lots of different people and energies
working in concert to create something beyond any one individual. Using
any of the tools of media at hand from the web to vintage TV
equipment. Formed in Dec' of 96 starting at the legendary Minneapolis
night club First Avenue. The road since has taken it out of night
clubs and put it into museums and art centers. Future Perfect has
put on shows at the Walker Art Center, the Frederick R. Weisman
Art Museum,Intermedia Arts. Orchestra Hall The First
Future Perfect record "Music for Listening" was released in October
of '97. The
second "the Nature of Time" was releeased in 2001
