NVA x Eastern Bloc : Nuit Blanche

Never Apart and Eastern Bloc are proud to present a collaborative Nuit Blanche experience, encompassing cutting edge installations and music from both local and international artists.
The early evening portion of the programming will begin with immersive sound installations from Montreal artists Adam Basanta and Gambletron. Basanta presents ‘A Line Listening to Itself’, a generative sound installation featuring a variable feedback loop with multiple speakers, in the atrium of Eastern Bloc’s space. Queer interdisciplinary artist Gambletron will be presenting ‘Coppice: Multi-Tonal AM Radio Theremin with Transmission’: a drone theremin that is tuned using as many radios as possible. The installation sees the artist interact by transmitting electronics and vocals into ever-morphing chords produced by radios, her body, and the omnipresent electrical waves in the air. Gambletron is accompanied by Johnny Forever on visuals.
NVA has enlisted two artists from Montreal-based collective Acte to open up the music portion of the evening.
Simon Chioini balances ethereal, ambient electronics with challenging, rugged soundscapes for some of the most avant-garde and beautiful music to come out of Montreal’s experimental scene in years.
Multi-disciplinary artist Devon Hansen will be performing as Stefan Jós, straddling the line between Chioini’s experimentalism and the outright functionality of headliner Joey Anderson.
New York City-based techno artist Joey Anderson has quietly made strides over the past few years, having put out some of the deepest and specialized "dance-floor" records in recent years on labels such as Levon Vincent's Deconstruct, and most recently, Amsterdam-based Dekmantel.
