WHAT: On October 2nd, as a part of Pop Montreal International Music Festival, The Luyas will be staging a free event at Red Bird Studios, a co-op gallery space in the heart of the festival zone. The night will be the culmination of a month of collaboration between the band and a number of Montreal/Toronto based artists, and will be made into a film by the music world's favorite rogue filmmaker, Vincent Moon. The basic concept is to create a fictional ecosystem in an audience space to enhance a musical experience, so that life can be beautiful and weird and better than usual.

HOW: Installation will take place over the month prior to the event date. Using their combined experience and as much found materials as possible, installation artists Ruby Kato Atwood and Jessie Stein will build a giant fictional environment out of the studio space combining sculpture, stage building, costume-making, and light and effects rigging. Derrick Belcham, an audio-visual expert based in Toronto, will be filming and animating footage to be used as sound responsive projections that will be major features of the ecosystem. Actor, Patrick Costello will develop a group of actors and dancers to be the native creatures of the space. They will wear masks and costumes designed by the installation team, and move under Costello's guidance. The Luyas will play a full set of music in this weird world featuring new material from their upcoming release.

The entire event will be made into a film to be available on the internet by lauded filmmaker, Vincent Moon, in collaboration with Derrick Belcham. Vincent Moon is best known for his work on La Blogotheque's Take Away Shows, He deals with visionary notions about images, society and new technologies on his blog (fiumenights.com), and is developing now a lifetime project: to document local energies around the world, as temporary areas, often one shot performances/films, where the limits between creators and audience is blurred as much as possible.

YOUR $$$ will help us pay for:
-certain materials needed for the installation/sculptures.
-the use of the space.
-the gallery rental fee
-the rental of sound and lighting equipment
-sound and lighting engineers for the night of the performance
-extra camera rental
-film editing fees
-web hosting fees for the eventual video

THANK YOU!
