SPEAKEASY featuring whole wide water
Friday, August 18, 2017
Houston's whole wide water will be collecting sounds in anticipation of their performance as part of Lawndale’s SPEAKEASY program on August 18, 2017. Big Show artists and attendees are invited to use the provided objects and instruments, or their own voices, at the recording stations. The sounds will become the foundation for a live musical performance composed and arranged by Anthony Barilla with words by Lindsay Kayser.
whole wide water is an ongoing collaboration between writer Lindsay Kayser and multidisciplinary artist Anthony Barilla. whole wide water encompasses a variety of projects, transmitted over a span of twenty years. The narrative is set in the future, when modern civilization has mostly washed away. Previous and ongoing projects include handmade books of nursery rhymes, the creation of a new cosmology and its attendant mythologies, and the composition of songs for an astronaut aboard the International Space Station.
Post-show entertainment will be provided by Houston's A.S.S., an accordion and drum quartet that plays new arrangements of classic Lou Reed, Beyoncé and Bon Jovi songs.
