HARDCORE TRAINER / VINNIERAGUA'S ONE MAN ACID BAND
The Hardcore Trainer (2022) is a hacked crosstrainer machine that is placed in a futuristic setting.
The machine has a cyborg aesthetic which still examplifies the need of post apocalyptic DIY culture. The crosstrainer has been modified to also function as a musical instrument, with various buttons and knobs. As Vincent performs on the crosstrainer, it creates raw, danceable hardcore that reflects a distant trans humanist society. The crosstrainer symbolizes our symbiotic relationship with technology in our current society while it is a visual representation of the music it creates.
While Vincent plays the Hardcore Trainer, he gets fit while he controls his synthesizers as well as acoustic drums and lights and pumps out some mad hardcore.

Vinnieragua’s One man acid band is a hybrid mechanical acid contraption straight from a retrofuturistic cyber tale. A mechanical cam shaft drives the acoustical drums electronically connected to a gameboy and a 303. Big levers let the beat drop back into a pit of boiling acid. This will keep you dancing like. Performance Friday, February 10th.
All music is created live. Performance: Friday 10/2 from 22:00 -23:00 @ Outdoor Xpo
