La Cuidad, a composition using sampled sounds, digital rhythms and analog effects with visual projections by Gill Arno; celebrating the wonder of New York City. The piece delves into the happiness inherent in the legacy of a diverse society, while addressing the representation of New York City as a pool of unlimited excess and ambition. Criterion is co-founder of Broklyn Beats, a loose collective of producers, DJs, visual and graphics people working to inject a sense of reality into the sometimes formulaic world of electronic music. Criterion records and performs both solo and with the groups with Doily, DJ Churchshoes and visualists Arno and Theres Wegmann. Commissioned by Roulette.
