Space. It's the final frontier, but for die-hard fans of electro-rock pioneers Justice, the great climactic moment is a run of Stateside dates for its feature-length live performance epic IRIS: A Space Opera. After a debut showing at Austin's SXSW in March and showings across Europe, including the duo's native Paris, the visually-stunning effort finally comes to theaters across the U.S. for one day only, Tuesday, Sept. 10.
In an experimental take on the tried-and-true concert recording format, Justice play with "space" in a different way. Instead of filming its Grammy-winning Woman Worldwide set in front of a live audience, the French duo chose to recreate its stunning audio-visual presentation in an empty sound studio, creating the illusion that its walls of Marshall amps and ever-shifting light structures are floating in an invisible - albeit reflective - void.
