WHERE THE FUNDS WILL GO

We are using Kickstarter as a way for people to pre-order the Music, Visual Art, and Tickets of the Night Vision project. 

Visual Art: Cost of Printing the visual art

Performance Art: Venue Rental Fee, Cost of transportation of 15 people from Baltimore to Philly to NYC to Providence

Music: Cost of Recording, Mixing, & Mastering, Cost of printing vinyl records

NIGHT VISION 

Night Vision is a conceptual multimedia collaboration interweaving music, visual art, and performance to explore the polarities between the visible and invisible, the natural and the supernatural; internal experience of gender, senses of heightened awareness, and encounters with spirits of the unseen world. 

THE RECORD 

The music of Night Vision is the upcoming album by A Stick and A Stone, which entwines creepy banjo, electric bass, fluttering harp, heavy percussion, and soaring vocal harmonies with lyrics alluding to cosmos, ghosts, inner gender, and apocalypse. Each song of Night Vision will be brought to light through corresponding pieces of performance and visual art. Accompanying the songs that invoked them, these will demonstrate how music, though invisible, can conjure images and movements in our bodies and minds. 

THE PERFORMANCES

Friday January 11th, 7pm - Black Cherry Theater - Baltimore, MD

Sunday January 13th, 7pm - PhilaMOCA - Philadelphia, PA

Tuesday, January 15th, 7pm - 186 Carpenter - Providence, RI

Wednesday, January 16th, 7pm - Panoply Lab - Brooklyn, NYC 

Shadow projections by Sean Glass and Karl Wheeler will flicker across the stage during The Moon’s Craters. Experimental drag persona Ruby L.L. Voyager will transform from beast to cyborg during the song Vaccine. Acrobatics by The Dandy Vagabonds, dance by Nerik Elliot with Movement Brigade & Stone Depot Dance LabJennifer Turnbull, and David Konyk, performance art by Shayna Sheness and Angela Vitacolonna, puppetry by  Valeska Pupuloh, and animation by You’ll Get Cursed Out There (Adelaide Windsome), each performing to the song they have chosen, will take the audience across the journey of Night Vision’s subconscious underworlds. 

THE VISUAL ART

A group of artists will be creating original artwork to accompany each song of the album. Including the alchemical oddities of Corina Dross, the mesmerizing mindscapes of Justin Duerr, the stark graphics of Erik Ruin, as well as original work by Mandy Katz,  Fiona Bearclaw, Jill Lavetsky, Abby Miller, Joshum Harpy, Katrina Avocado, Aaron Porter, and Annie Mok, the illustrations will be printed as a set of posters included with the album.

THE MUSICIANS OF NIGHT VISION

Gabby Smith - Violin. Jessica Marcus - Cello. Dan Epichammer - Drums and Chimes. Darian Scatton - Upright Harp. Benjamin Schurr - Static, Mandolin, Theremin. Kellzo - Drums and Bowed Electric Guitar. Janke Seltsam - Vocals. Blackeney Bullock - Vocals. Angela Vitacolonna - Vocals. Elliott Harvey - Vocals, Electric Bass, Banjo, Autoharp, Organ, Rhodes, Piano, Guitar, Composition.

Risks and challenges

If the vinyl comes back from the record printers and the test pressing needs alterations, the vinyl record will not be available until February. If a visual artist does not follow through on creating a piece, there will be a delay on the prints until we find another artist to take their place. Also, if one of the performance artists has to cancel last-minute, there will be one song that does not have a performance art piece corresponding to it at the show.
