Kate Lesta of Boulder-based Communikey and JT Root of Aeon Child, who curated The Nature of Things music series with some help from MUTEK's director Alain Mongeau, have put together what looks like an insanely great and eclectic line-up of thirty artists from around the world performing throughout the month as part of the Biennial of the Americas. The series, which kicks off tonight 8 p.m. in the McNichols building in Civic Center Park
Tonight's line-up should give you an idea of what's in store for the month. Canadian sound and visual artist Jamie Drouin opens the night with the world premiere of "WHITEOUT," which he says is is "an examination of the electronically produced sounds continuously occupying our airspace." Canadian Deep minimal techno act Overcast Sound team up with Moleculagem, a Brazilian collective of artists who mix art, video and live visuals, and Brooklyn-based multimedia performance duo SWEATSHOPPE also perform tonight.
Throughout the month the music series features other acts like Murcof, Juana Molina, D Numbers, Nortec Collective, Gabriel Dunne, Zeena Parkins, ZIZEK and others. For the full line-up and schedule, visit the Biennial of the Americas site.
