Stereogum Exclusive: Porter Robinson Reveals NewWorlds Live Show Details


Speaking to Stereogum’s Chris DeVille in a new interview posted this morning, Porter revealed some of the crazy details behind his technologically ambitious & first-of-its-kind Worlds live show.

“When Robinson takes Worlds on tour later this month – his first gigs as a live performer instead of a DJ – the album’s immersive sonic experience will be given an intense visual component. “I think it will be beautiful, to be honest,” he said. His new show will incorporate lots of technical wizardry: 32-foot screens96 lighting fixtures480 streamer tubes1,600 pounds of confetti, and 15 50-pound tanks of CO2, designed in collaboration with music technologist and artist Laura Escudé aka Alluxe (Kanye, Jay Z, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Drake) and controlled by Robinson with Ableton Live andinteractive MIDI controllers. It’s essentially a new video game for him to toy around with, only this time he’s no longer an inhabitant of some fantastical universe, he’s god.” – via Stereogum
