Last year, legendary label 4AD shot this live session with their artist SpaceGhostPurrp in our Seltzer Room Studio 3. They even gave us a nice shout out in their PR materials for the piece. The artist performs “Mystikal Maze”, “Get Yah Head Bust” and “Don’t Give A Damn” off of his Mysterious Phonk album. Watch it after the jump.
We were going to keep a lid on this for a while, but since it looks like his PR machine already spilled, we’ll spill. Kanye West shot a promo for his new LP, Yeezus, right here on our Stage A!

Last week, we were pleased to host the Waterfall Swing, as it was shot by TK Digital for Japanese Television. After the jump, read all about it, and a watch a great film about it’s installation here.
About the Waterfall Swing (from www.waterfallswing.com):
“Towering steel swing set holding arrays of mechanical solenoids that create a water plane falling in the path of its riders. Formed from a tangent of ideas raised from the study of interactions of water as space, the swing is the first in a series that play with interaction in rides and installations. Riders pass through openings in a waterfall created by precisely monitoring their path via axel-housed encoders, creating the thrill of narrowly escaping obstacles.
The swing is an interactive art piece and a collaborative project between Mike O’Toole, Andrew Ratcliff, Ian Charnas and Andrew Witte.
Water recirculates through 384 independently controlled solenoid valves at the top of the structure to create a wall of water. This water starts from a collection pool on the ground and is pumped up to a 4” distribution pipe that feeds the solenoids. Rotational encoders mounted on the swing axis gather information about the angle and speed of each swing. That information is sent to a computer that predicts the action of the rider. The computer then creates a hole in the wall of water, allowing the rider to swing through without getting wet.”
In the photo above, you can see the swing spelled our initials, BFP!
Below is a great video about the swing’s installation here, Arriving in Brooklyn, by filmmaker Russell Vargo.
