Neo Nativism versus New Music

Western Front presents
Neo Nativism versus New Music
collaboration with Warren Arcand

In 1989, a group of young Aboriginal artists took the floor at the Western Front for an influential multi-media performance entitledNeo Nativism, an expression of traditional Aboriginal culture through new technology. Fall 2014 marks its 25th anniversary and to celebrate Russell Wallace, one of Neo Nativism’s founding members, curates a night of New Music revisiting it’s original aim to connect tradition with modernity. The evening features contemporary Aboriginal music co-composed by Russell Wallace and Remy Siu; Pat Ernst and Lan Tung; Michael Park and Warren Arcand; and arrangements of traditional Aboriginal music for a large ensemble by Tony Wilson.

Leading up to this performance, artist Russell Wallace will explore playback transformation of ancient found reel-to-reel audio tape which he will cut and weave into a neo Coast Salish cape. You can follow it online at “Echoic Chamber.
