Kenzo Digital is New York-based multi-talented creator that works in
video, audio, and mixed media to create both artistic works and
commercial products. Aesthetically informed by early 90s hip-hop, his
latest and most well-publicized work, City of God’s Son, is a
CC-licensed “opera for the blind.” The project finds Kenzo sampling and
remixing numerous sources to create a vivid sound-scape that invokes
imagery and a cinematic narrative through audio.
Today, in conjunction with our interview, Kenzo is releasing the most
recent addition to COGS titled City of God’s Son: Cinema for the Blind.
The piece features interviews with blind musicians on “sight through
sound, synesthesia” and the film itself, crafting a fascinating
perspective on how our senses work in conjunction with (or without) one
another. You can watch the piece, which is released under a CC
Attribution-NonCommercial license, in HD at YouTube – check out a still
