On the first night of the 2014 Decibel Festival, the Opening Gala at EMP is an obvious choice. I’ll get to see Vancouver duo Sabota; Portland’s Natasha Kmeto with visuals from Effixx; and locally based Lusine. But inevitably at a festival as well curated as Decibel, I wish I could be in two places at once.
In the Sky Church, Kinesthesia, the Optical showcase, is tempting. The line-up: DJ Total Freedom; mulitdisciplinary artist The Sight Below (pictured above at Decibel last year); Max Cooper’s audio/visual debut of ‘Emergence’; and Arca, with Jesse Kanda’s visuals.
