Sunday, January 15, 2023 2 PM (Co*Lab): NME is thrilled to present our first event of the new year! This stunning double bill features G. Dix and erψn temp3st, in a sonic and visual exploration of location and meaning in the identity of this city. Tickets $20 General, $15 NME members, and $10 livestream.

Prairie raised and born, G. Dix is the experimental project of three friends – Jared Epp, Alena Manera, and Jacqueline Ohm. Songs respond to the members’ sonic musings about life in their northern home. Improvisational and somewhere between noise and ambient sound-scaping, G DIX reflects their city’s dullness, quirkiness and industrial complexity.

Dix will be playing a 30 minute set timed and inspired by a video which features iconic Edmonton sites and cultural moments. Expect both rehearsed and spontaneous moments to emerge. A soundtrack to our hometown.

erψn temp3st is a queer non-binary multimedia artist and performer of settler descent. As a performer they approach digital media through the lens of the somatic. They are interested in the body as a builder of worlds and use digital technologies to render those worlds visible. Their exploration across multiple disciplines aims to redefine body-based practices in terms of technological, sonic, and sculptural intervention. erψn’s work has been presented in theatres, galleries, and cinemas across Canada and internationally in India, Venezuela, and the United States. They are the recipient of multiple grants, awards, and residencies across Canada. erψn is one half of soft tooth||SFTTTH, an interdisciplinary sound collective that explores intimacy, resonance, and relationality. They were an artist in residence at Lorganisme (QC) and DUPLEX AiR (Portugal) in 2022.

𝓑𝓵𝓾𝓼𝓱𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓟𝓱𝓪𝓷𝓽𝓸𝓶 is a multimedia performance that explores colour, optics, and moving collage through the use of voice, dance, and movie magic. It explores ideas of disappearance and camouflage where the body (or parts of the body) are hidden within video textures. Its visual language references mimicry in nature, divination, and psychedelia while sustaining a relationship with the materiality of glitch and internet aesthetics. This work is partially inspired by my mom and dad who, like me, have a deep appreciation for unusual objects and materials. My mom is a skilled seamstress, crocheter, and devout recycler, reducer, and re-user. And my dad is a farm kid who knows how to do and make everything and anything. Growing up we had all sorts of methodically organized bits and bobs to make crafty projects with. 𝓑𝓵𝓾𝓼𝓱𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓟𝓱𝓪𝓷𝓽𝓸𝓶 is an extension of this early childhood practice.
