Set to play the new Dome Theatre in the Halifax Discovery Centre on June 10, the concert features an eclectic mix of Nova Scotia musical talent along with the Discovery Centre’s astronomy imagery and a live experimental video provided by Upstream’s artistic director Lukas Pearse.
“This is not your typical concert. The crew aboard the UMA-Discovery consists of accomplished musical explorers ready to unveil their unique sonic treasures drawn from their respective galaxies of artistry,” says Pearse. “Every note played and melody crafted will resonate with the infinite depths of the cosmos, promising an unforgettable, interstellar concert experience.”
Among the musicians scheduled to perform are Evan Syliboy, the electric guitarist from the Mi’kmaw band Alan Syliboy & The Thundermakers and Sarah Frank, violinist for the contemporary bluegrass/Canadiana group The Bombadils. They will perform alongside classical tabla player Taral Naik, sarangi musician Sahara Jane, jazz trombonist Tom Richards, and Brian Borcherdt, an indie electronics performer from bands including Dusted and HOLY F*CK.
“This innovative production aims to unite diverse cultures and musical genres under the same sky, showcasing the universal language of music,” say organizers.
The Dome Project – Gigs In Space: A Sonic Voyage Through The Stars takes place at the Dome Theatre at the Discovery Centre (1215 Lower Water St, Halifax) on June 10. Visit upstreammusic.org for tickets and information.
