DiMoDAA Traveling Oculus Rift Project

The Digital Museum of Digital Art [DiMoDA] and The Wrong New Media Biennale bring their mobile oculus rift station to the Surf Med Pharmacy in Miami Beach and we can’t wait to get our hands on it!

Inspired by the main character in the 1992 cyberpunk novel, Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson, the project features works by Claudia Hart (NY/CHICAGO), Tim Berresheim (DE) Jacolby Satterwhite (NY), and a project by Aquanet 2001 (Salvador Loza & Gibran Morgado) from Mexico City.


Kid LoreKeeping it Rough

It’s not often you find a top notch, stoner friendly garage band like Kid Lore in Miami’s less-than-ideal music scene. However, we here at Tropicult like to seek out the good stuff no matter how rare it may be.

Featuring brothers Adam Tahoun (guitar and vocals) and Daniel Tahoun (drums) along with bassist Jorge Mogna, these musicians stayed true to their path from the beginning. The Tahoun brothers even attended a Miami branch of the famous School of Rock, an organization that teaches kids how to play rock instruments and start bands.

The members of Kid Lore used all the resources they could find in a town like Miami, to make their band great. Now, they’ve come a long way to headlining at New York’s The Bowery Electric, Will Call Miami, Churchill’s Pub, and the Granary.


Hearts of Iron:Emperor Zero

Emperor Zero combines their roots and Manchester influences in a whirlwind of guitar brilliance, creating a well-crafted post-punk sound that is powerful, potent and strong as iron.


Speaking InCinemawith Local Women Filmmakers

Earlier this month, Miami Beach Cinematheque with the support of the Knight Foundation, launched the seventh installment of the filmmaker discussion series, “Speaking In Cinema”. The series engage audiences in the appreciation and analysis of cinema as language and art, rather than escapist entertainment. In the past, the bi-monthly event has featured a local film critic, an out-of-town film critic, and a guest filmmaker. This year, they highlighted the works of three different Miami-based filmmakers at each installment, led by a visiting film expert, Filmmaker Magazine Editor in Chief Scott Macaulay.
Today we will introduce you to three of the filmmakers chosen.
