OBEY Convention Off-Season Presents Áine O'Dwyer and chik white
Thursday October 11, 2018
Fort Massey 5303 Tobin St. Halifax, NS -- all tickets are "will call" at door.
Our season opener is a real wild gift. We’re delighted to be hosting one of the UK’s most elusive and subversive musicians: performer, listener and sonic stalker Áine O'Dwyer. Originally from Ireland, O’Dwyer visits us from her current home in London where she’s been honing a contemplative sonic practice around found and forgotten spaces, acoustic phenomena, the search for alternative scorings and the performativity of instruments, time, memory and the body. Of late, this practice centers on the pipe organ as a place of shifting and contemporary ritual.
Joining her in opening this sonic portal will be West Chezzetcook’s experimental jaw harpist chik white on the eve of his first major European tour.
