A virtual stream in cooperation with Beatport and Denon DJ

On April 7, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. CEST Fondation Beyeler will open its exhibition halls in the virtual realm, hosting a unique DJ-stream by one of the most renowned electronic music artists Dixon and the creative team of Transmoderna. The stream is broadcasted online in partnership with the music platform Beatport and Nordstern Basel. Throughout the one-hour-long performance, the iconic building of the museum transforms into a hyper-realistic total work of art.

Together with the Fondation Beyeler and Nordstern Basel, Beatport will host its first ever virtual DJ-stream – from a fully digitized exhibition space of the renowned Swiss Art Museum. Electronic music artist Dixon will be performing his set in the shape of a hyper- realistic avatar. For the production of this extraordinary art.set, a versatile 3D-environment was melded, which features artworks from the Fondation Beyeler collection by Paul Klee, Auguste Rodin and Wolfgang Tillmans. It was realized by the creative team of Transmoderna, including the neural artist Sofia Crespo, the multimedia artist Sabrina Ratté, the generative artist Feileacan McCormick and thedigital artist Aaron Jablonski.

Throughout the stream, the artworks and the building's architecture will be interpolated with artificial intelligence-based visual and particle effects in sync with the music. The result will take the audience beyond anything they have ever seen in a museum.

Kicking off in the garden and spacious exhibition halls of Fondation Beyeler, the stream takes the viewer on a groundbreaking immersive experience tingling all senses. Using state-of-the-art technology, Transmoderna's creative team converted the museum's famous architecture into a hyper-real 3D model. Dixon also appears as a hyper-realistic avatar, making it nearly impossible for the audience to differentiate between reality and the virtual.

Playing in a DJ booth seamlessly sculpted into the museum's space, the music mixed by the digital character gradually initiates the premises' redesign. Based on the original floor plan of the Fondation Beyeler, the newly created 3D environment goes through a remarkable audio-reactive transformation. Soon the walls' structure responds to the beats and bass of Dixon's set. Out of this process, a virtual architecture emerges that accurately replicates the real world yet impresses with a uniqueness that is distinct from reality.

The transformation also affects selected artworks from the Fondation Beyeler collection: paintings by Paul Klee, Auguste Rodin's 'The Thinker', and photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans. Using artificial intelligence, artist Sofia Crespo and architect Feileacan McCormick, both working in generative and neural art, awake new visions of the classics. Additionally, multimedia artist Sabrina Ratté presents her digital sculptures, specially built for the stream.

This way, Transmoderna's creative team enables the audience to see how machines of the 21st century imagine the art of the 20th century. Throughout Dixon's one-hour-long performance, all elements unfold surprisingly through the symbiosis between electronic music and creative coding. The idea of how a digital museum tour might look like is exceeded by the immersive experience of a virtual club night. Eventually, the audience themselves will have undergone a transformation: from a museum visitor to a wanderer through the virtual realm of the arts.
