Toronto: The Music Gallery presents “TURNONANDBENOTALONE” February 3 & 4
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
The Music Gallery is pleased to present TURNONANDBENOTALONE. A multi-channel audio and visual installation, activated by a series of four solo instrumental performances. The event will unfold over two nights via the interactive website turnonandbenotalone.com from Febraury 3-4 beginning at 8pm.
“Sitting at the intersection of multi-channel audio/video installation, music performance, poetry, and online presentation, this project is an exercise in sense-making amidst a drifting kaleidoscope of diversions, discrepancies, references, reflections, shadows, spirits, translation, and transformation whose convergence of irreconcilable vectors and sliding coherences spoor a summed knowable,” Jason Doell, TURNONANDBENOTALONE producer.
