Description

The opening night of Unsound takes place at the Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology and includes OFF LICENSE, a new ensemble made up of queer icons Juliana Huxtable and Ziúr as well as visual artist Theresa Baumgartner, who together will create a sublime audiovisual poem with sonic pyrotechnics. Norwegian Bendik Giske employs circular breathing techniques to deconstruct the very idea of the saxophone, as captured on his mesmerizing recent album Cracks. (Joining Bendik is Bridgit Ferrill, on live electronics.) Opening is Flora Yin-Wong, who will present Binding Utterance, a reading underscored by compositions and field recordings exploring the idea of living spirit possession in the use of masks in Noh theatre, and in particular the Deigan mask: 'woman turning into a demon'.
