Is this a dream, or is this real life? ? ?
Lucky for us, the answer to this question can truly only be discovered through the musical roller coaster journey offered by none other than the Freaky Boos. Comprised of Jackson Darby (Persons, NPNP), Aaron Hutchinson (Hutchie, eschaton, haolin munk), and Becky Katz (Sourpussy, glassEYElashes, Please),
The Freaky Boos unite under the pretense of experimentally-slick yet sonically-glitchy electronic music–forging to the forefront of our surrealities, substantiating our reflexes for more brave, more weird, more succinct “dream” worlds.
Driven by the fiercely decisive direction of Dons Brown (producer), the trio have congruently melded their diverse musical maps to reflect only the brightest and oddest of jazzy tendencies and electro-r&b fevers–paired with a side of spiritual transformations.
“The one thing we do know–dream or not–the time is now. “

A prolific experiment in the balance between improvisation and composition.

A new thing! A little bit of rock a little bit of pop? Come see it here first.
(members Guy Madonna, The Submissives)
From ancient cultures are born revolutionary sounds. Driven by a determination to re-imagine songs of the ages as sounds for our age, Greek-Canadian Chairman George presents a unique form of artistic fusion – one where the bouzouki cohabits with the pipa, where melodic Greek songs are performed in Mandarin, one where there are no borders. It’s a Mediterranean cruise up the Yangtze, and this is the soundtrack. In an era of too much conflict, Chairman George brings worlds together in celebration. And in dance.
Based on Απόψε στις ακρογιαλιές by Vassilis Tsitsanis.

Sneak a peek into what I’ve been working on for the past few months/years. Tonight at Shanghai. This interactive installation is called “illuminating our ancestors” it is an old discarded Chinese chandelier I repurposed. Fire, incense and smoke are often used to honour our ancestors in ceremony. In this piece, I hope to achieve a similar sense of ceremony using the chandelier light, sourced images of my family and technology to honour our ancestors. #myartprocess #artottawa #chinatownottawa #donkwanart #canadianart #illuminatingart @ Shanghai Restaurant
