Following the critical acclaim of Rouse’s Gravity Radio at BAM’s Next Wave Festival, Rouse’s new work will be featured at the 2011 Luminato Festival in Toronto. From the Press Release announcement: “Gravity Radio In 2008, Mikel Rouse’s multimedia trilogy (Dennis Cleveland, Failing Kansas, The End Of Cinematics) mesmerized Luminato audiences. Now, in this live acoustic performance of Rouse’s latest work – inspired by the theoretical physics of gravity waves – a cycle of 14 songs intersects with shortwave frequencies and reports of the day’s actual news to create a richly poetic soundscape unique to each performance.” Commissioned by Luminato.
