Taking us into the night, musician-of-the-moment Rae Spoon will play his superb Canadian Gothic tunes from superioryouareinferior, to help you sway into the holidays.
Maritime sound artist, journalist and radio documentary maker Janna Graham will plunge the audience in 'A Sort of Song', an immersive multi-channel sound installation exploring mobile and locative sound experiences.
World Premiere: Psychic Capital is a collaboration between artist Jessica MacCormack and musician/sound artist Rae Spoon. This project combines experimental animation and sound to explore how identity development is informed (and sometimes controlled) by psychiatry’s relationship with capitalism and its broader political objectives. The animation uses innovative combinations of stop-motion, graphic animation, cutout and hand-drawn processes. The soundtrack produces a non-linear narrative by mixing songs, samples of recordings as well as by generating electronic sound and noise by manipulating sound waves or acoustic signals on computer programs.

Musician-of-the-moment Rae Spoon will play his superb Canadian Gothic tunes from superioryouareinferior, his fourth solo album. superioryouareinferior is an album of the times in that it doesn’t stick to one genre, but it retains Rae’s respect for well written songs and folk music roots that keep him connected to his audience.
