Carrie Gates’ video mixing works use sound-reactive 3D processing and unusual rhythmic juxtapositions to create throbbing, psychedelic, responsive compositions that add a new dimension of interaction and intrigue to any environment. Abstract digital imagery is mixed live with hand-shot, performance-art-influenced footage, to create a hypnotizing, bent reality that is infused with concepts of visual music, set in a glitched-out 3.0 fantasy realm. She has played an active role in experimental electronic music communities and independent artist-run organizations since the mid-1990s.

Carrie Gates has been a featured artist on Undervolt & Co., VICE’s ‘Noisey’ site, VICE’s ‘The Creator’s Project’, Print All Over Me, and VirtualGallery.com.
