Headliners at Electric Eclectics 2019 will feature Sonic Youth co-founder Lee Ranaldo and Leah Singer performing their collaborative work for suspended electric guitar and film/video projection. Ranaldo and Singer physically immerse the audience in a sound and image spectacle as Ranaldo’s guitar plays and swings in pendulum arcs through the performance and audience space while interacting with Singer’s overlaid projections. The duo has performed this piece at numerous international venues in Rotterdam, Reykjavik, Italy, New York, Shanghai and elsewhere.
Other performers at EE 2019 include sonic explorer Hélène Barbier (Montreal), multidisciplinary artist and musician Alexis O’Hara (Montreal), post-punk foursome Bonnie Doon (Ottawa), electronic duo Cares +WHQB (Toronto), sound artist Adam Basanta (Montreal), DJ 1KW (Munich), Lee Paradise (Toronto) and Freaky Boos (Hamilton), among others.
