On Friday, July 27, join us for an evening of transforming and transporting musical energy, inspired by Susan Hiller: Altered States and programmed by Vancouver-based artist and musician Brady Cranfield. Enjoy performances featuring the bracing noise of The Rita, the dark pop of Mourning Coup, and the musical psychotropia of the BC Hydra DJ crew. A cash bar will be open throughout the evening.
Brady Cranfield is a sound and visual artist, musician, and writer. He has a MA in Communications and a MFA from SFU. His work has been exhibited and performed across Canada.
Various obsessions have guided Sam McKinlay’s abrasive sound project entitled THE RITA into different paths of rough and textural constructions of audio since 1996. From genre cinema sound sources, to mic’d cage diving with great white sharks, to mic’d women's makeup application and movement in nylon stockings; the various deconstructed elements of the live and pre-recorded sources lead to a heavily directed and immersive listening experience. Over the last four years, physical elements of the classical and neoclassical ballet have acted as a culmination of driven interests for McKinlay’s THE RITA.
Mourning Coup is a classic rock tribute band commonly mistaken for experimental pop. Spear-headed by Chandra Melting Tallow, Blackfoot visual artist and producer, mastering the art of psychic defence as song writing. In 2015 Mourning Coup their debut LP "Baby Blue" on No Sun Recordings. Rapture of Roses, a cross disciplinary project integrating performance, visuals and music, premiered at Unsettled for Vancouver Queer Arts Fest 2017.
Cash bar available.
