After a successful Wavelength Music Festival last month, the monthly discovery series is back, but with a catch.
On March 25th, Wavelength is presenting “Don’t Speak” at Array Space, a night of music where talking is banned. On arrival, speaking is forbidden, which according to a press release “an ambiance of immersive sight and sound will provide the viscous background. Writing materials are provided to all attending the event, for ease of communication.” Benoît Pioulard, North Atlantic Drift and David Jones will be performing with DJ sets by Languid Lilt and General Chaos.
Wavelength concert programmer Adam Bradley says:
“In the world of small gig live performance, there are few things more disheartening and aggravating than working hard on a set, looking forward to performing, then having the moment drowned in a din of irreverent, distracted chatter. At ‘Don’t Speak’ we will endeavour to build a scenario in which the music and atmosphere is the foremost focus, a challenge to let down walls or examine ones existing, to let our senses guide us through the night.”
Wavelength music series is a Toronto based organization which showcases the best of local rising talent. Past alumni reads like a Canadian indie encyclopedia with the likes of: Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, the Constantines, Owen Pallett, Feist, Fucked Up, Manitoba a.k.a. Caribou, Tokyo Police Club, METZ, Grimes and many more. Wavelength’s Jonny Dovercourt and Adam Bradley recently curated our Under The Radar Series, check out Vol. 13 here.
