Grimes to debut interactive ‘REALiTi’ installation at Moogfest

The singer will unveil the project at the North Carolina festival

Grimes will showcase an interactive installation, titled ‘REALiTi’, at this year’s Moogfest.

The singer and producer is one of the headliners of this year’s edition of the art and technology festival, held in honour of Robert Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesiser.

‘REALiTi: Inside the Music of Grimes’, will debut at the festival, which takes place in Durham, North Carolina from May 19-22.


The installation will allow attendees to play around with ‘REALiTi’, a track from Grime’s latest album ‘Art Angels’ and “manipulate the music as they physically interact with the environment.”

According to a press release, the installation is powered by Microsoft’s Kinect motion sensing technology and will surround visitors in “unique sounds and visuals”.

Earlier this week, Grimes shared a music video for ‘California’, which appears on her new album. The vibrant and colourful video sees the artist dress in patriotic country style, complete with a stars and stripes-style outfit, as well as appearing as a mermaid and in a brightly coloured basketball court.


Grimes appeared on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last month (April 20) to perform a 30-minute session in the Live Lounge.

Performing ‘Art Angels’ tracks ‘Flesh Without Blood’ and ‘REALiTi,’ the 30-minute set also saw her cover the Franz Schubert classic ‘Ave Maria’. She has performed the song in the past, stating it as one her of all-time favourites.


In addition to the performance, the artist also chatted to Mac about her upcoming plans for two new music videos as well as her approach to songwriting and recently collaborating with her brother on the ‘Kill V. Maim’ video.
