Silence Presents: Rallidae w/ Ian Bain and Isaiah Farahbakhsh
8:00 pm
$10/PWYC
8pm

Rallidae is coming to Silence as part of their second CD release tour!

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/620192661474486/

Rallidae (Brooklyn) combines improvisation with strong melodies and narratives. A Genuinely distinctive and entertaining combination of sounds and words. Music and words are by Angela Morris, with shimmering sax of many tones, scales, and the lyric of a love song. This contrasts a solo-centric jazz aesthetic - their pieces are largely ensemble constructions whose individual facets emerge into focus amid the shimmering group textures. "Paper Birds" is their debut album they are touring this month and we are thrilled they are bringing it to Silence!

Local artists Ian Bain and  Isaiah Farahbakhsh will be starting the night off with some lovely cello/guitar interplay.
Having completed his studies in music at the university of Guelph, under the likes of Ken Aldcroft and Joe Sorbara, Ian currently keeps as busy as possible playing and composing in projects that range from pop, to country, to surf-rock, to jazz and free music.

Silence Presents: Versa / Future Peers / Billy Moon
8:00 pm
Guelph's audiovisual collective Versa is returning to Silence!

As part of a short Ontario tour with Toronto band Future Peers and Hamilton's Billy Moon, this concert and space transformation will happen at Silence December 10.

The installation by Versa will follow the same form as their Camp Wavelength installation "Cottonwood Mirror Displacement". Large reflective surfaces are animated in time with the live music by sound responsive lights. Colourful, blobby sculptures and trippy mirror arrangements transform the space into a temporary, futuristic disco. Between artists, Versa will VJ loops that they've created, along with contemporary video art by other artist peers. Versa will also perform their instrumental music and sound responsive visuals set that was featured this summer at Hillside Festival.

Future Peers will be celebrating the release of their new album. They make groovy, alien pop music, and have had Guelph dancing at several house shows and visits to the Ebar in the past 2 years.

Billy Moon is a Hamilton garage rock band that sounds like if Ryan Lochte went to Burning Man but no one wanted to hang out with him.
