Vapours

Thursday, November 24, 2016

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. http://stitchedbyrick.blogspot.ca/ 

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

Pachamama by Alexandra Rodriguez incorporates gestural and musical storytelling rituals using vegetables as acoustic and electronic instruments. http://www.rodrigueza.com/
