    Rashaad Newsome's practice blends several practices together including collage, sculpture, video, music, computer programming and performance, to form an altogether new field. Shade Compositions 2012 Remix is the remix of the audio produced during Newsome's 2012 performance of Shade Compositions at SFMOMA. Shade Compositions is a live performance featuring a chorus of more than 25 people. During the performance, Newsome acts as the Conductor simultaneously recording, looping, editing and remixing in real-time the audio and video documentation of the performers using a hacked Nintendo® Wii™ game controller. The resulting layers of real and projected imagery investigate assumptions and constructions of identity in mainstream media and popular culture.
