Artist: Imaginary Flesh
Song: Seven Haab Out of Xi Boötis, pt. 3
Recorded at Yonge-Dundas Square (Intersection Festival – Day 2), September 3, 2016.Imaginary Flesh - Seven Haab Out of Xi Boötis, pt. 3
A lovely day, warm in the sun with a cool breeze, the Intersection Festival once again filled Dundas Square with music of all kinds, offering a counterpoint to business at usual in the ad-basked concrete canyon. With Tad Michalak (of Burn Down the Capital/Feast in the East) again taking a leading role in curating the day, the music had nods to the festival's more chamber music-intensive past while upping the noise and weirdness reverberating off the surrounding walls. That had a sort of push-pull effect on the passers-by, sometimes drawing them in, sometimes causing evident confusion and moving along.
A rare chance to check out Imaginary Flesh in the... um, something. Celebrating the digital release of their fab concept album, they played the expansive "Seven Haab Out of Xi Boötis" in its entirety. Ranging from deep-space synth wubbles to some ace kosmische grooves, this was an altogether tasty journey.
[I also created a remix that enfolds some some set's quieter parts upon themselves, which you can check out on soundcloud.]
