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
