Soundstreams | The Lost Karaoke Tapes

January 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$25

Renowned for her fusion of pop, cinema, psychedelia and turntablism, Juno-nominated composer Nicole Lizeé is inspired by the glitches of retro technology. Lizée takes you on a multimedia trip using 80’s karaoke videotapes that she found in a dumpster. Revisit hits by Olivia Newton-John, the Bee Gees, INXS, The Models, Icehouse, Avalanches, Men at Work, Kylie Minogue, Air Supply, Midnight Oil, Platinum Blonde, Honeymoon Suite, Corey Hart, Anne Murray, Rush, Alanis Morissette, Bryan Adams, Loverboy, Joni Mitchell and The Guess Who with an erratic karaoke machine, fragmented music videos, and electronic and live sound.

The Australian Art Orchestra under Artistic Director and composer, Peter Knight, epitomizes a 21st-century approach to music-making. Its musicians are as comfortable improvising as they are reading high level notation, they can play a burning rock or jazz groove, and are at home collaborating across cultures and disciplines.

Nicole Lizée has been called a “brilliant musical scientist” and lauded for “creating a stir with listeners for her breathless imagination and ability to capture Gen-X and beyond generation”. She creates new music from an eclectic mix of influences including the earliest MTV videos, turntablism, rave culture, Hitchcock, Kubrick, 1960s psychedelia and 1960s modernism. She is fascinated by the glitches made by outmoded and wellworn technology and captures these glitches, notates them and integrates them into live performance. She has been by an impressive range of ensembles including, the Kronos Quartet, BBC Proms, l’Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal, CBC, Radio-Canada, the San Francisco Symphony, NYC’s Kaufman Center, Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, and So Percussion. Her music has been performed worldwide in renowned venues including Carnegie Hall (NYC), Royal Albert Hall (London), Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam) and Cité de la Musique (Paris) – and in festivals including the BBC Proms (UK), Huddersfield (UK), Bang On a Can (USA), All Tomorrow’s Parties (UK), X Avant (Canada), Luminato (Canada), C3 (Berlin), Ecstatic (NYC), Switchboard (San Francisco), Casalmaggiore (Italy), and Dark Music Days (Iceland).
