A dé​Collage concert features a lot more than just music. The Denver band incorporates costumes, film projections and live painting into its shows, while tinkering with experimental electronic sounds in its music. The band also helps run the Denver music production space Moon Magnet Studios.

More from OpenAir Sessions:

dé​Collage stopped into the CPR Performance Studio to play some new music and decorate the space with balloons, quilts and lights. The band members also spoke with Jeremy Petersen about interactive live shows, their collaborations with Denver musicians and their new album coming out this fall.

Stream the session above. Interview highlights:

Singer and guitarist Reed Fuchs on combining the band's music with visual elements:

"We like to think that our music's visual and kaleidoscopic. We released an app with our last album where you could listen, you could watch our album and remix it. And play with it visually and audibly at the same time."

Fuchs on the band's latest live show:

"We have a bunch of flying fish blimps that are massive. They'll fly around and people can fly them with a remote control. It'll be interactive. There will also be a dancing oyster."

Songs performed:

  • "Psycho Babble Baby Bottle"
  • "Vortex Chooseroo"
  • "Aliveness"
