The Residents, The MoMA, & The River Of Crime

Our lives are constantly surrounded by unseen streams …numerous, invisible rivers composed of love, power, success, pain …all that we detest and desire. Some we navigate with ease, some we seek forever …and some are simply whirlpools, spinning us into oblivion.


In conjunction with the release of their newest album [sic], “River of Crime,” and in anticipation of their MoMA screening/retrospective in October, pioneering NYC art punk tech band The Residents have launched a video contest, er, a “community art project.”
Create a video to accompany the 1:30 audio track they provide, and send it in. The Residents and MoMA curator Barbara London will pick 20 to upload to YouTube, and from there onto a MoMA screening and exhibition on the museum’s site.
I’ve had a MoMA screening myself; I highly recommend them.

Inspired by 1940’s true crime radio dramas, “River of Crime,” was released in May as two blank CD-R discs that you fill up with secret downloads []
