-don’t be a stranger!!!Aortic Valve


Aortic Valve is the collaborative effort of audio/visual artists, Evolution and VJCA. Meeting through the budding arts community in Reading, Pennsylvania in 2001, their shared passion for exploring the connection between audio and video has yielded countless experiments, dance parties, and happenings across the north east.

Through the artistic union of sight and sound, Aortic Valve combines an improvisational mix of music and video to produce a simultaneous stream of stimulation. This dual sensory duo has entertained audiences of all walks of life in venues of all types. From dive bars to cathedrals, art galleries to night clubs, roller rinks to wedding receptions, hotel lobbies to the occasional after­party, Aortic Valve engages eyes and ears, while encouraging everyone to get involved in the synesthetic experience.

Aortic Valve – a small part of the heart.
