I Found That ES-sence Rare

Tonight I'm going to hear ES, aka Experimental Songcycles, aka Sami Sänpäkkilä from Finland and Fonal records at the New Works Studio in Toronto. He's playing with members of Black Forest/Black Sea from Rhode Island; Toronto's Flynns and Gastric Female Reflex open.

Organizers say: "If you're a fan of the new Finnish underground (Kemialliset Ystavat, Avarus, etc.) or if you've read the feature article in the Dec. issue of The Wire and are intrigued, then you do not want to miss this rare and exciting appearance by Sami Sänpäkkilä's (Fonal Records) project ES including members of black forest/black sea! Toronto is the last stop on their Northeast US/Canada tour which, from what we've heard, has gone really well with some spectacular performances from ES and a number of related/like-minded projects along the way. For this tour, the music of ES has been/will be accompanied by amazing live art projections by Toronto's own Shary Boyle using several projectors, sand, ink + colored gels."

More on ES and Fonal here and more here on the marvelous Shary Boyle (whom music fans may know for her projection work on Feist shows).

That's tonight, Sunday December 12, 8 pm, New Works Studio - 319 Spadina, Toronto (upstairs). Just $5. If you can't make it - I'll report back.
