The Replicated art show at The Falcon in Orlando celebrated the 30th anniversary of Blade Runner. The exhibition presented a variety of artists' works using the iconic film as inspiration. The artwork is there until March 2, 2012. Q-Burns Abstract Message supplied the soundtrack to the show, filling the first two opening hours with a session also inspired by the music, vibe, sounds, and dialogue from Blade Runner. A recording of this session is available to download. Keep in mind -- this isn't your normal DJ set. This one was intended to create an appropriate atmosphere for viewing the art work. It's quite moody and very electronic with a few unexpected moments. You can download both parts by clicking HERE.
