Artist: Burglar

Song: Brain over mind? [excerpt]*

Recorded at Katzman Contemporary (Channel no. 1: Vlog), January 12, 2016.

Burglar - Brain over mind? [excerpt]

This five-night series, curated by Brett Despotovich, is bringing Toronto's experimental music scenes into a gallery space — both to allow some considered listening and to enable a series of large-scale visual collaborations. (This first night drew inspiration from the seemingly-boundless wellspring of youtube videos.) Besides the well-chosen music, this will also be an introduction for many to a rather lovely space — gallery culture, which tends to stay one step ahead of gentrification in the search for affordable spaces, has now seeped up to Carleton Village. So this week, hop on the Symington bus and go check out some cool collaborations.

This self-proclaimed purveyor of "spooky music" (who doesn't give away too many biographical hints in his online outlets) lead off the night with a slowly-evolving continuous track accompanying a TED-talk styled pop-science lecture.

[Channel's run at Katzman Contemporary continues through Saturday, with cool musicians using the space to collaborate with the visualisations in different ways.]

* Word is we can treat the talk's title as the name of this piece.
