Doom Tickler feat. Lana Del Satan - unknown

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.

Leslie Predy, whose loop-based music is filled with animalistic grunts and howls, took things to the next level in a spontaneous interspecies collaboration with celebripug Lana Del Satan, who was hopping with excitement while adding some call-and-response barking. (Check out some video evidence here.) Predy is also noted for her visual work in trawling youtube's weirder corners, and her montage here felt like a series of Tales From Beyond The Uncanny Valley, mixing early computer animation with pseudohuman robots and other creepy visages.

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