An evening of music, dancing, libations, and other kinds of stimulation to mark Triple Canopy’s tenth anniversary. The party will feature a performance by British cellist and composer Lucy Railton based on her acclaimed record Paradise 94, released this year by Modern Love. Railton’s performance will be followed by DJ sets by LSDXOXO and DJ Sabine.
- Lucy Railton is a musician and composer from London who resides in Berlin. She recently released her first solo record, Paradise 94 (Modern Love), which melds explorations of the cello, a church organ, and vintage synthesizers with field recordings, found sounds, and musique concrète. Ranging from devotional music to auditory illusions, Paradise 94 fuses Railton’s classical training and her engagement with sound design, electronic music, improvisation, and noise. Beyond being a prolific performer and avid music curator, Railton's compositions for film, dance, and installation have been presented and commissioned by the Tate Modern (London), the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London), Dark Ecology at Sonic Acts (Amsterdam), and Elektronmusikstudion (Stockholm). As an interpreter and performer, Railton has joined forces with musicians and artists such as Peter Zinovieff, Beatrice Dillon, and Philippe Parreno. For more than a decade, she has been dedicated to the performance of modern classical and experimental music, including works by Alvin Lucier, Giacinto Scelsi, Morton Feldman, and Pauline Oliveros. She also is cofounder of the London Contemporary Music Festival.
- LSDXOXO is a New York-based DJ and producer. The Fader has described LSDXOXO’s work as “deliciously confrontational.” His recent releases include the mixtapes Fuck Marry Kill (GHE20G0TH1K, 2016) and Whorecore (2014), which was selected by Fact as one of the top fifty albums of the year. LSDXOXO has garnered attention for his wild manipulations of mainstream sounds, which often apply sex-positive narratives to pop culture. He’s currently working on his debut LP, which will be released by GHE20G0TH1K.
- DJ Sabine ’s work focuses on the exposure and pleasures of African diasporic music, from house to Afrotech to Afrobeat to Haitian roots. Her creative projects include Brooklyn Mecca, Cumbancha, and Oyasound, which is working on an EP. Sabine is now a resident DJ for Fania Records’s Fania Collective. She’s played around the United States and the world and has participated in panel discussions and curated showcases such as Lakay Se Lakay: Home Is Home, a conversation series and party devoted to Haitian electronic artists. Sabine ultimately seeks to create new scholarship, through the African and Haitian diasporic lens, on music, culture, and spirituality.
