Die Antwoord: a provocative celebration of otherness

"If Die Antwoord are a joke, they're a painfully acute one. This over–the–top South African rap–rave trio, comprising rappers Ninja and Yolandi Visser and a hulking DJ called Hi–Tek, purport to represent 'zef', a strain of working–class/underclass Boer' culture that perhaps most closely equates to our own pejorative term 'chav'.

The band's co–founder and frontman, Watkin Tudor Jones, aka Ninja, has previously appeared in a host of similar conceptual art–rap projects and situationist pranks."

(Ian Gittins, 16 November 2010)

Pioneering real-time computer graphics

Through the early to mid 1990's "Tim Gruchy designed and conceptualised the interactive components and videos [for the Australian band "Vision Four 5"]. Their live performance had them standing on stage, waving arms in the air in front of large screens, not just for that 'put your hands up in the air' rave momentum, but also to use their bodies as controllers for triggering the sound and visuals via digital interactive computer systems – video cameras converted into real–time computer graphics which triggered midi sounds and visual trigger points adding extra layers to the live performance."
