Architettura explores connections between electronic music, film, and contemporary architecture. Musicians Taylor Deupree from Brooklyn, David Toop from London, Savvas Ysatis from Athens, and Panacea from Frankfurt perform compositions inspired by such structures as the Tower of Winds in Yokohama, Japan; Waterloo Station in London; the Museum of Fruit in Yamanashi, Japan; and the pre-planned city of Brasília, Brazil. Slides of these architectural sites complement the musical selections, which have also been released in a series of compact discs. Between musical sets, Iara Lee's (Modulations, Synthetic Pleasures) videos on architecture--Terminal Happiness (1999, U.S., video, 6 minutes), Tower of Winds (1999, U.S., video, 4 minutes), Monumental Minimalism (2000, U.S., video, 2 minutes), and Enclosed Nature (1999, U.S., video, 1 minute)--will be screened. This multimedia event by Caipirinha Productions debuted on the Brooklyn Bridge anchorage in June 1999 and has toured the world during the past year.
