How are we doing at the Art Gallery of Mississauga?

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


Thursday, July 3, 2008, Civic Square Stage, 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
FREESTYLIE featuring:
LAL - CD Debut Deportation
Jessica Thompson - Freestyle SoundKit
Grace N' Style - Urban Hip Hop Dance

FREE shuttle bus departs from the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West, Toronto) at 7:00 pm to the Art Gallery of Mississauga, returning by 9:30 pm.

Opening the event the GNS dance crew wil be performing in wearable sound pieces that generate and broadcast electronic beats as their bodies move. When the Freestyle SoundKit is engaged, each step the dancer takes a single electronic beat is broadcast.

Toronto collective Lal's sound from the outset was one of contrasts: icy, futuristic rhythms melting into warm basslines and soothing soul melodies, with reverberating atmospherics whirling about the spacious groove. Hints of Rosina's South Asian roots and Murr's hip hop formation season their productions with a taste of tradition, while the overall sound suggests something far more progressive.

The project's creativity extends into a new media show with new media incorporating video images into and interactive stage set-up that pushes the audience to engage of the deep social messages that ripple through every song.
