Rudy & Christina both hail from design-based backgrounds that collectively include: sculpture, graphic art, interiors, music production, and event design.

TWENTYSEVEN FOLDS is the Asheville-based visual design / performance project of

RUDY ZABOROWSKI and CHRISTINA MELTON.

 

Since its start in Nov 2013, 27FOLDS has designed stages for and performed with an impressive roster of music artists including Nightmares On Wax, Kalya Scintilla, and Dubtribe Sound System. Other notable projects include: the design of two stages at MOOGFEST 2014, the first 27folds “VISIONARIUM” residency held in July 2014, various other ongoing series and event concepts, and an experimental installation selected for exhibition at {Re}HAPPENING 2015.
