Realized as an album, a videogame, and a series of live performances, "Deceptionista" harnesses the relentless unknowability of the real-time internet as raw materials, refracted through ADR's distinct compositional approach.
In an immersive virtual ecosystem and an improvised live performance, ADR utilizes the free online tool VPeeker as a point of departure in a series of mercurial miniatures. VPeeker interfaces with Vine to provide a continuous global feed of real-time videos, displaying six seconds of the most recently uploaded Vine clip at any given moment. Sourcing both audio and video from the feed, ADR has developed methods of engaging with, reorienting and stratifying the unfiltered live stream.
