Go Behind the Scenes of RAC's Experimental Live Project Station 3 Station: Exclusive Video
RAC is known for blurring genre lines -- producer André Allen Anjos usually showcases his dance music with a live five-piece band. This year, Anjos and two touring members of RAC experimented even further with a live improvisational project called Station 3 Station, which was presented for one night in Portland on March 30.
Now RAC has teamed up with Billboard to premiere a video that goes behind the scenes (and into the thought process that created) Station 3 Station.
Station 3 Station was presented by Anjos and RAC band members Karl Kling and Jeffrey Brodsky, and involved the three artists combining their synthesizer gear on stage and patching it into one soundsystem, creating an environment that's a cross between a DJ set and a live performance. As Kling states in the video, the idea was to create the music as opposed to curate a set.
"We wanted to combine the tools of the studio with the club," said RAC in a statement to Billboard. "After years of DJ'ing I always felt like we could take it further. This is about as far from pushing play as you can get."
The video features footage from the Portland set and the studio, as well as the RAC members explaining the creative process in their own words.
