‘a man amun’ is the art practice of brian mcgaw. it manifests itself as music, visual art, photography, performance, installation and interactive media.
the music of ‘a man amun’ pulls from the various corners of house, jazz, disco, hip hop, and pop to create a sound that is harmonic and emotive but danceable.
the ‘a man amun’ live show has taken many forms, often including visual and interactive elements and sometimes full bands. his commercial work as occurrent arts creating interactive experiences for brands like google, nike, and the frost museum of science have taught him how to bend media and technology to create powerful experiences for the public.
after a four year focus on rattling the rock clubs of new york with bellechord, mcgaw brings the ‘a man amun’ project back out into the light.
this june, in collaboration with occurrent arts and visualist kirill torshev, mcgaw debuts QUALIA, the interactive live show for the fourth release by ‘a man amun’. in it, they’ve created a large LED door with which they can inject experiences onto the dancefloor. with sound, image, props, and performance QUALIA takes an audience on a musical journey through time and space.
