Formed at the time by visual artists Luiz Zerbini and Barrão, by film editor Sergio Mekler and musician Chico Neves, the Brazilian group combined live edited electronic images and a musical performance involving conventional instruments and noisy objects, such as an orange juice extractor, a knife sharpener and doorbells. Great musicians Dado Villa-Lobos, Carlos Cesar Laufer and Kassin performed live. The work was commissioned by Associação Cultural Videobrasil.
In 2013, during the 18th Festival, the group presented Reboot, a rereading of O Gabinete de Chico. Find out more about this work in our collection
