New York media artist Peter Burr presents SPECIAL EFFECT, his newest mash-up of live music, video, and staged theatrics. In this performance, Burr becomes the live ‘presenter’ of an imaginary television show featuring fresh new works from the underground animation label Cartune Xprez. These video segments are all inspired by the Zone, the site of an unnamed cataclysm in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 sci-fi film Stalker.
