+Opening Night Reception
Wednesday, 9/27 at Walker Art Center
9:00 – 10:00 p.m.
SPECIAL OPENING EVENT: Album Release Concert from Syrian Electronic Musician Hello Psychaleppo
The opening night film is followed by a multimedia performance celebrating the release of local Syrian musician Hello Psychaleppo’s new bird-themed concept album Touyour at the Walker Art Center’s Garden Terrace. Projections on a handmade bird sculpture are synchronized live to his unique hybridized music.
Hailing from one of the most mystical and musically rich cities in the Levant, Hello Psychaleppo is deeply rooted in oriental music tradition. He uses melodies of the Arab bedouin “Mawwals” and the ecstatic strains of tarab, and threads it through convoluted, industrial structures made from dubstep, drum & bass, electro, and trip-hop. He creates a journey away from boundaries of style, engaging souls into letting go while experiencing a new dimension of sonic blends.
