Sol Viator | Sir Kadian and Laughter Lily | XiME

Saturday, June 8th

NME will be taking over the beautiful new Ritchie home of our friends at Mile Zero Dance twice during this festival. These multiple bills of Edmonton artists, will both be unique, brilliant portraits of some of the wildly varying approaches to new music to be found in our community.
Refreshments available all night!

June 8 brings together a trio of performances including drones, free improvisation, live electronics, graphic scores, clowning and much more!

Biboye Onanuga, Holly Sangster, and Matt Meeker, aka Sol Viator will bring their incredible combined experiences to the fore in a brilliant improvised set. Beginning with tripartite dialogue, they will build into a mesmerizing soundscape centered around grooves, drones, loops and freely improvised interactions of drums, saxophone, bass and electronics.

XiME, the experimental music ensemble of The University of Alberta, is led by Mark Segger, and will be offering selections from Mari Alice Conrad’s inspired and innovative graphic/ text-based score collection, Six Arctic Experiments. Created as a result of research and photography done in the Arctic, XiME’s expert interpretive skills will bring these fascinating scores to life, giving a sonic representation of place, experience, and change.

Experimental performance duo Sir Kadian and Laughter Lily will unite their practices in Palm Palm, a dazzling soundscape combining Laughter Lily’s songs and sound journeys with Sir Kadian’s multimedia art and music. This promises to be a joyous and unique experience for all, a journey exploring interplay between movement and stillness, the absurd and the meditative, chaos and peace, and yes – with a bit of clowning included!

Tickets $20/$25. Festival Passes $60/$75. Cash bar available.

The CKUA Events Calendar is a listing of music, arts, and culture happenings for the whole province. It is a terrific resource that CKUA offers to the community, to share details about concerts, gallery openings, plays, and films.

Please note that due to the amount of listings, we publish events that focus on music, arts, or culture. While we’d love to publish all submitted items, the sheer number of events means that we sometimes have to decline submissions.
