Today Beamlab reveals its third name:
Addictive TV & Resolume
Once so eloquently described as ‘next level shit’ by Grandmaster Flash, British electronic duo Addictive TV (Graham Daniels & mash-up guru Mark Vidler) create music with a difference; it's music you can see. They are “responsible for mind-bending live entertainment” according to UK newspaper The Times. American music magazine XLR8R described them as "light years beyond the gallery realm of masters like Bill Viola" while US entertainment magazine Paste said “Addictive TV completely blew my mind! A compelling popculture audio/visual avalanche!” In their extraordinary work, Addictive TV delve deeply into movies and videos hunting for sounds and images to sample, creating dance music that fuses everything from fidget and electro to drum ‘n bass and rock. They create their music by keeping the audio and video samples together, so their fans get to see more than just a DJ, more than just graphics or visuals; they get to experience music in a genuinely unique way. The Hague based Resolume (Edwin de Koning & Bart van der Ploeg) worked with Addictive TV for their new performance set-up.
