Moral Kombat : Casper Electronics vs. G Lucas Crane

Fight for justice, humanity, melody, and most of all morality. As part of the summer 2011 Moral Kombat concert series at the Clocktower, Casper Electronics (Peter Edwards) and G. Lucas Crane fought for glory in the ultimate battle of musical morality in this eighth encounter. The Moral Magistrate, a machine with an astute mathematical awareness created by Edwards himself, is the final determiner of the two friends' fates. Yet the battle goes beyond a humorous take on the character of music, and presents an open dialogue that explores morality processed by our own brain computer in comparison to the less cerebral machine.

Listen to the epic battle between the mastermind creator and the tape-throwing torrent, followed by an exclusive interview with Casper Electronics about the Moral Magistrate device.

Clocktower Exhibits & Events


The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
