SEEN Announces: Arca’s Casting Call

arca_seen_london

Arca has announced an open casting via Instagram for a new project no one knows much about. What we know for sure is that Jesse Kanda, a director and Arca’s long-time collaborator, will be involved. This mysterious open casting call could have something to do with the launching of his third album, Reverie, due to be released soon.

‘Jesse and I are shootin’ somethin’ (sic) in London this December and are looking for allies’, the London-based electronic producer, consultant, mixing engineer and DJ revealed on his Instagram. Arca added that applicants would have to be ‘comfortable being partially nude on camera’.
