THE MARIGNY PARADE trailer from R. Luke DuBois on Vimeo.

As you know, Luke DuBois is performing here in Marfa on Friday, 2 March, with Bora Yoon, as part of the opening celebration of Data Deluge. Curator Rachel Gugelberger introduced us to Luke’s work, and just showed me Luke’s DVD, The Marginy Parade, which was commissioned by the PROSPECT New Orleans art biennial, curated by Dan Cameron (who in turn curated our 2011 spring exhibition, The World According to New Orleans).

The DVD contains five viewpoints on a large, multi-pronged marching band parade that took place in New Orleans on October 22, 2011. The parade featured three bands — The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders, The O. Perry Walker “Orange Crush” Marching Band, and the Eleanor McMain “Marching Mustangs” band — which divided into a five-part, synchronized parade, starting in five different locations in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, converging on Washington Square Park. The parade performed music written by DuBois, drawing inspiration from the repertoire of contemporary New Orleans bands. Check out the DVD if you can: amazing work, plus all proceeds go to The Roots of Music, a free, year-round, music education program for middle school children in New Orleans.

Don’t miss DuBois’s performance on Friday here in Marfa, where he’ll be live manipulating video for ( (( PHONATION )) ), a multimedia solo performance by Bora Yoon. The two will discuss their work on Marfa Public Radio at 10 am tomorrow: stream it live online, or if you’re in Marfa, blast it from your radio!
