Fall Commission for Exo/Endo and Ilk
This fall 2016 the performing groups Exo/Endo and Ilk will premiere a new music composition by Erin Gee in three Canadian venues in Vancouver, Victoria and Calgary. This new work is intended to be an extension of Gee’s work Voice of Echo (2011). Stemming from a solo performance of this work in 2015 in Toronto at Trinity Square Video (What can a Vocaloid Do?), Gee will newly re-create materials based on vocaloid creatures, artificial intelligence, electronic voices in human bodies, authorship, subjectivity, embodiment, voice and agency telematically using a system developed by Michael Palumbo. This work will employ five singers, and an experimental turntableist and extended bass player.
Exo/Endo is Andrea Young (voice and electronics), Michael Day (prepared turntables/percussion) Braden Diotte (multi-instrumentalist, agitated electric bass and electronics)
Ilk is Sara Sinclair Gomez, Sharon Kim, Micaela Tobin, and Andrea Young
