Kazoo! Halloween: Versa / Baby Cages / L CON

Versa is an audio/visual collaboration between process-based artist Monika Hauck and musician Alex Ricci. Sonically influenced by contemporary soundscape, instrumental post-rock and 60’s psychedelic, the project combines heavily effected bass guitar compositions with projected visuals created live throughout the performance. Music is rendered visible by harnessing its physical and cymatic properties, resulting in an immersive synesthetic experience.

Scorceress pop from a stranger world. Hypnotic melodies and swayable beats led by frontwoman Halloway Jones. With elements of post-rock, pop, folk, avant garde/experimental, drone and a dozen other components, all we can say is that it is truly captivating. While many of these songs are broken, reflecting on missed opportunities, they are hopeful. Building it up all again amongst the rubble.

L CON exists as a fluid, constantly evolving project led by Lisa Conway. With the release of her new album Moon Milk, based on Italo Calvino’s short story collection The Cosmicomics, this new collection of songs use sparse electronics and striking arrangements to explore the deep and dark celestial void.

Interview with Katie Ewald & Ame Henderson of Public Recordings

Andrea of Indie Alarm Clock on CFRU 93.3 FM had a chat with Katie Ewald and Ame Henderson of Public Recordings about their upcoming performance/workshop Choreographies of Encounter and What We Are Saying happening this weekend. In their performance they explore the ways in which creating sound and movement can intersect with creating space and listening, allowing for unity and shedding light on the possibility of a leaderless togetherness. In a society where we all seem to constantly be talking over each other, this can teach us ways in which we can subvert the dissonance and use it to make space for each other and work together. In the workshop, they teach some of the exercises that went in to creating the performance. Check out the interview and join us this weekend!

‘What We Are Saying’ by Public Recordings

WWAS_Guelph-web‘what we are saying’
the radical possibility of a leaderless togetherness

Kazoo! is excited to co-present a special interdisciplinary contemporary dance performance created by Public Recordings Performance Projects. An intimate and expansive composition of sound and movement, ‘what we are saying’ is a performance that presents the conditions of bare utterance.

In an open space filled with chairs, a group of seven performers start a conversation. They begin by listening. Representing nothing but themselves, their words and actions gradually approach a unison where every decision is a group decision but no one knows what’s going to happen next.

For the performers, uncertainty is both the figure and the ground of their pursuit–to express how things are and how they want them to be different. Asking seriously whether being together is possible, what we are saying illuminates the radical possibility of a leaderless togetherness.

Saturday October 1, 8:30pm @ ANAF (32 Gordon St, Guelph, ON)
& Stick around after for a special edition of Golden Throats Karaoke!

Tickets: $15 General Admission & $12 Arts Worker/Senior/Underemployed/Student.

Kazoo! #238: Elliott Vincent Jones / Bernardino Femminielli / Bonnie Trash – Sept. 29th @ eBar

Kazoo238-web-01ELLIOTT VINCENT JONES (Toronto, ON)
Former Ell V Gore frontman Elliott Vincent Jones emerges from the ashes of the raucous DIY party scene that gave him his start with a fresh new synth-pop project. Jones has spent time perfecting his distinctive brand of New Age Art Pop fusing influences as varied as Fela Kuti, Brian Eno, Yellow Magic Orchestra, and Michael Jackson. With a new EP out on Bad Actors and a string of international tour dates, this pulsating synth pop is layered with dark hooks hiding around every corner.

Bernardino Femminielli is an artist working under the guise of a hyper-sexual, genderless provocateur. His work and character are a synthesis of mysticism, danger and pleasure; a detached crooner, a dog of the night. Narrating in Spanish and French, from brutal italo-disco to heavy cosmic drone, to baroque glam and mutant industrial, his sonic ventures are chaotic and unpredictable.

Twin sisters that shred, creating songs that wouldn’t sound out of place on the “To Live and Die in LA” soundtrack. Soaring vocals, innovative ‘80s-sounding guitar wailing and programming – it all comes together to make songs that hint at nostalgia while looking to a dystopian future. The cool kids at the party have arrived.

Kazoo! #237: The Magic / The Luyas – Sept 15th @ eBar


The Gordon Brothers, Geordie and Evan are back and ready to celebrate the release of their long-awaited full length album ‘Nightfalling’. Their new album is everything we’ve come to love about The Magic: warm vintage synth tones, smooth soul, and solid-gold songwriting. Are you ready to experience the disco-soul powers of The Magic?

It is easy to get lost in the Luyas’ musical world. Their retro-futurist songs are drenched in echo, and built from guitars, French horn, piles of keyboards, drums and percussion. The Luyas are set to release their first new music in four years with ‘Says You’, a new five-track EP on Paper Bag Records. We’re beyond excited to welcome The Luyas back to Guelph!
