LAS VEGAS, NV-
“…When Spinal Tap joked about their album cover being “none more black”, I don’t think they actually fathomed a color that could actually be blacker than black. Apparently, they had never heard of Vantablack before. Vantablack, a material, developed in the UK, and is one of the darkest substances known to man, has been used as part of some of Gesaffelstein’s (colloquially known as “the prince of darkness”) live shows recently, and it was on full display during his performance at Intersect.
Vantablack erases visible features on a 3D surface, and it creates a visual effect that can literally play tricks on your mind, and it made for an extremely exciting performance in the aptly named Infinity tent.
With his tall Vantablack walls absorbing light, and his stage production bursting clean, dancing white lights that violently clashed with the darkness, it truly was an intriguing experience. Any video clips you see online really don’t do it justice. It really is something that needs to be experienced in person. With his frenetic beats playing, and his ghostly shining outfit standing out in the burst of lights amongst the darkness, the contrast was quite exhilarating….”
