Recording: The Visit

Artist: The Visit

Song: unknown*

Recorded at Yonge-Dundas Square (Intersection – Day 3), September 2, 2017.

The Visit - unknown

In recent years, the Intersection Festival would normally consist of a paid concert, usually the night before the day-long extravaganza in Yonge-Dundas Square. This year, however, under the continued guidance of Burn Down The Capital's Tad Michalak the festival expanded to four events, including a pair of concerts at The Jam Factory. The day-long marathon in the concrete canyon of commerce remains at the festival's heart, though, exploring the frissons of experiencing strange and occasionally abrasive sounds competing with the city's mersh heartbeat.

Moving from the big stage to the loosely-delineated side stages, where passers-by could pretty much wander up and investigate the musicians at close range, Raphael Weinroth-Browne (cello) and Heather Sita Black (vox) continued to explore their elaborately-constructed, sprawling gothic song-castles.
