This weekend is the new edition of Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival in Indio, California. The festival has just announced the schedules on its official website. And with the schedules come surprises. In an entry dedicated to the bands playing at the event (Cold Cave, Glasser, The New Pornographers and Delorean, among others), Matador has confirmed that Interpol’s gig will be streamed online. The band has teamed up with The Creators Project, David Lynch, Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy to create “Interpol Under Surveillance”. The project is presented as “a visual juxtaposition of the seen and the unseen”. Intrigued? Read their motivation: “As the observer becomes the observed, the performance explores the deepening layers of covert surveillance, morphing data acquisition into visual beauty and questioning the fine line between the viewer and the voyeur.” HPX will take care of the manipulation of visuals in real time. The multimedia experience also includes the premiere of “I Touch A Red Button Man”, an animated film by David Lynch for the song “Lights”. The whole of “Interpol Under Surveillance” can be seen online via the Coachella YouTube channel, today at 7:25pm (PST).
Interpol will also be appearing at San Miguel Primavera Sound Festival that takes place on 25 and 29 May at Poble Español, and from 26 to 28 May at Parc del Forum in Barcelona. Tickets are on sale here.
