Shred Masters

This is a video of Shred Masters, a recent performance that I produced on March 12th and 13th, 2010, as part of a larger art party at Eyebeam called Mixer:Olympiad. Each competitor represented one of the party’s competing nations in a head-to-head single elimination guitar shredding tournament. The shredders faced off while riding up and down on scissor lifts equipped with banners and smoke machines, soloing and dueling to win the rounds by cheers from the audience.

Many thanks to the shredders:
