Doors open: 8:00pm
Entry: R18

Experimental Electronic musician Blankets aka Montreals Sasha Ford hits New Zealand in March for a string of shows across the country.

Recalling harsh noise, experimental electro-acoustics, and early industrial traditions, Blankets makes use of simple homemade instruments, found cassettes, and field recordings to create a physically immersive, rhythmically sensitive music where improvisation and intuition play important roles; a listening experience that is at once disarming and therapeutic.

Ford writes, I am interested in auditory worlds with particular political as well as psychological resonance. Performances frequently feature manipulated vocal samples which use satire, dramatism, and other strategies to engage with themes related to vulnerability, gendered experiences of power, and spectacular capitalism.
