Please join us on Thursday, November 24 at 8:00pm for the Fall 2016 performance in our Vapours New Music Series. Performing Objects features musicians who use appliances, food and toys in their performances; it is simultaneously playful, absurd, beautiful and disturbing.

The three performances that comprise this event explore non-traditional musical instruments as symbolic props. This event is a co-presentation of Modern Fuel's Vapours New Music series, Queen's New Media Artist and Speaker series, and the Tone Deaf Festival of Experimental Music.

$10 General / $5 Students and Modern Fuel members

Domestique is a musical that operates within a staged makeshift household in which digitally processed sounds of blenders and vacuum cleaners contribute to a humorous, choreographed scene. 

Andrea Pensado performs with “Andrieta”, a ventriloquist dummy whose “voice” is processed live, playing on the musicality of speech patterns.

Pachamama by Alexandra Rodriguez incorporates gestural and musical storytelling rituals using vegetables as acoustic and electronic instruments.
