Tidal ~ Signal is a festival of exploratory music, sound, and new media taking place on Unceded Coast Salish Territories (Vancouver, BC). The event is co-curated and produced by Rebecca Bruton and Alexandra Spence**.
Tidal ~ Signal is inclusive, accessible and anti-elitist, and features a diverse array of musics encompassing noise, ambient, electronic, drone, experimental techno, improvised, sound and performance art. As organizers, we operate from a core set of anticolonial feminist ethics, and seek to disrupt patterns of gender disparity in music programming of all genres. Our aesthetic mandate is reflective of this, with a particular focus on highlighting women, transgender, genderqueer and intergender artists working in left-field genres.
**Tidal ~ Signal ran for two consecutive years, 2016 & 2017. Alex and I continue to make small waves from our respective ends of the globe. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions about curating a small festival of experimental music.
TIDAL ~ SIGNAL II. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24TH 2017. VANCOUVER ART & LEISURE. 494 RAILWAY AVENUE. In partnership with Quiet City.
