EMPAC: Fall 2011 Schedule
Empac recently announced their fall lineup and it’s nothing short of amazing. The full schedule is available on their site.
A quick couple that stuck out to me:
Sept 1: Guy Maddin: Tales from the Gimli Hospital: Reframed
Commissioned by Performa 11 with the National Arts Centre of Canada, this unique work in progress event pairs the acclaimed filmmaker’s classic first feature film with a new live score performed by a remarkable all female Icelandic cast including musicians formerly of the band mÃºm and Sigur Ros.
Sept 9: EARBRAINS: Sonic Research Underground
Experimental music micro-cultures fly beneath the radar in nearly every US cityâ€”functioning as hidden incubators or underground sonic research labs for aesthetics and technology. The outcomes almost universally bubble up to the surface, popularized by more mainstream acts. Performances happen in tiny clubs, non-profit galleries, people’s houses, bookstores, and on college campuses. This has been the fertile ground for generations from which experimental music artists and audiences have evolved.
…and a ton more.
I’m also super excited about the Jon Hopkins and Four Tet show on September 15th at 8pm as Four Tet was one of my main highlights at Camp Bisco X this year.
