Wayward Music Series goes multimedia with Arachnotopia this Saturday, January 23, presenting a program of audio/visual pairings for the first full moon of 2016. This experimental and interdisciplinary evening will be held at Wayward Music Series’ customary venue, the Chapel Performance Space at Wallingford’s Good Shepherd Center.
Saturday’s line-up begins with local string trio Thunder Grey Pilgrim, whose folksy acoustic sound, tinged with sparse harmonies and ominous lyrics, will be accompanied by visuals by Amanda Welch and Justin Minich. The relaxed but edgy sound of three-piece band somesurprises will follow, its highly processed and atmospheric acoustics set against a backdrop of visuals by Kevin Blanquies. Interdisciplinary artist Emily Stout will premier her short film Ecosystem to the tune of electroacoustic duo Medina/Walsh on processed guitar and synth, and aural and visual innovation will come to a head with Nick Bartoletti’s “experimental sonic and video environments, using a network of old cameras, TVs, modular synthesizers, and other glitch boxes.”
Tickets are $5-15 suggested donation at the door. Things are always a little out of the ordinary at the full moon–why not see what can happen?
