Aquarian Falling by artist Sarah Kelly (Tigerwing)

Location: +15 Hallway (Near Alberta Theatre Projects and Theatre Calgary offices in Arts Commons) 
Date: September 1 - December 14, 2015
Live Performance and reception at Happenings #2 in Upper Centre Court at Arts Commons on Thursday, November 19th from 6-9pm

The +15 Soundscape in Arts Commons is home to a new sound installation by electronic musician and performance artist Sarah Kelly, also known as Tigerwing. Aquarian Falling blends the human body and voice with technology to create texturally and dynamically encompassing music.

Recently featured twice at Sled Island (2014 and 2015), Sarah Kelly’s Tigerwing moniker belongs in the realm of Avant-Garde Pop.  Her live performances around Calgary (Broken City, Tubby Dog, and The Hifi Club) are hypnotic solo sets that build intricately layered beats around her high-floating vocals. 

To create the sonic forms of Aquarian Falling, a microphone was placed on the ground as the artist repeatedly threw her body onto a concrete floor. These sounds were then processed and composed to coalesce with Tigerwing’s original vocal samples, making an orchestra out of one body in the physical world, and the gravity in between. Visit the +1 level of Arts Commons outside Theatre Calgary and Alberta Theatre Projects administrative offices to be immersed in the all-encompassing experience, and catch her live performance at the Happenings #2 event on November 19 in Upper Centre Court.
