Operation:Mindwipe, the project that has had an incredible array of experimental legends collaborate with the project like Mark Spybey, Kim Cascone, FEEDBuck Galore, Soundlab, Scot Generik, David Linton, Mark Jackman, Lloop, Sheldon Drake, and many more brings you their most innovative project to date to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the first release from O:M, "Instrumental Transkommunikation."
THE ISOLATION LAB is a mind-bending "twin event" concept from Operation:Mindwipe founder Darryl Hell.


[the experiment]

(stage 1) This is a performance laboratory where the audience of 13 people will meet at a gather point, then be taken to a secret location in NYC to experience, while wearing blackout glasses, 45 minutes of sonic stimuli generated by
18 sound artists on two continents, 4 countries, and 8 U.S. states.
(stage 2) The following week they will attend a premier screening event to see a multi-camera production of the previous week's performance, eat tons of good food, excellent drinks [with or without alcohol], an artist meet & greet [featuring special live video set from Videopunks and a dj set LIVE & DIRECT FROM GERMANY TO BROOKLYN by DJ Denard Henry], and a Q&A session that will be live streamed via Google Hangout.

[the experiment in-depth]

In STAGE 1, you will be tasked to meet at a secret gather point in NYC at a specific time, which will be provided to you in the experiment protocol. Then you will enter the world of Operation:Mindwipe. At this point you will be met by an O:M Transport Manager who will lead you into an O:M Transporter. Then instructed and you will put on blackout glasses, you'll be driven to the secret location of the performance and experience it, never removing the glasses. We will return you to the gather point after the performance and then you can remove the blackout glasses.

Seven days later, you will attend STAGE 2 in Brooklyn at HellLab where you will be treated to a feast [for meat eaters and vegetarians] and elixirs/hydration, meet the other attendees for the first time, meet the artists, and see a multi-camera presentation of the performance...that you attended and only could hear one week prior. Videopunks will be providing visuals during the meet & greet and there will be some additional surprises...as if there hadn't been enough already.

[note: THE LOCATION WILL REMAIN CLASSIFIED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL STAGE 2, WHERE YOU CAN TALK TO PEOPLE AT THE STAGE 2 EVENT IN BROOKLYN AND JOIN THE PARTY VIA GOOGLE HANGOUT LIVE. THE VIDEO OF THE PERFORMANCE WILL BE POSTED ON VIMEO AND RELEASED DURING THE STAGE 2 EVENT]

When you leave STAGE 2 you will be given a DVD of the performance AND a copy of their debut CD, "Instrumental Transkommunikation," originally released in 1995 on FURNACE RECORDS, San Francisco.

FYI - no guest list...no texting...no cameras...no peeking...no fooling ;)

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: YOU WILL BE WEARING THE BLACKOUT GLASSES FOR A MAXIMUM OF 80 MINS & MINIMUM OF 60 MINS. YOU ARE NOT TO REMOVE THE BLACKOUT GLASSES FOR THE ENTIRE TIME. YOU WILL TURN YOUR PHONE OFF WHEN YOU REACH THE GATHER POINT BEFORE YOU GET IN THE O:M TRANSPORTER. WE HAVE A TEAM OF PEOPLE THAT WILL MAKE SURE YOU ARE LED FROM THE O:M TRANSPORTER TO THE PERFORMANCE SPACE AND BACK TO THE O:M TRANSPORTER TO BE RETURNED TO THE GATHER POINT. YOU WILL BE COMPLETELY SAFE AND CARED FOR. YOU WILL BE SEATED THE ENTIRE TIME. WE STRONGLY REQUEST THAT YOU GO TO THE BATHROOM PRIOR TO MEETING AT THE GATHER POINT AND PLAN TO NOT GO TO THE BATHROOM FOR THE ENTIRETY OF STAGE 1.
[1:45PM TO 3:30PM] --> IF ALL THIS IS DOABLE, THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU

FYI - Statistical Terrorism V.3, the O:M performance, took a large beaker of the rhythmic industrial noise, added it to a healthy dose of live percussion, environmental sound, and various instrumentation, all blended it into a volatile audio/visual assault. Mark Spybey [Dead Voices on Air] returned to Operation:Mindwipe after 16 years to perform live with the project for the first time at the Voidstar Productions Industrial Festival 2012.
