Postcommodity: We Lost Half the Forest and the Rest Will Burn This Summer

FRI, Apr 28, 2017
6:30 pm

Location: Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater


Using their own borderlands-rasquache instruments and regalia, Postcommodity performs song variations from their latest album We Lost Half the Forest and the Rest Will Burn This Summer. Recounting an ongoing cycle of decay in a desert from the view of its flora and fauna, hacked electronics, voices, rattles, animal calls, and Mexican whistles dirge through the only path to the end. 

This work was performed throughout 2016 at Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, NM, El Espectro Electromagnetico, D.F., Mexico, The Lab, San Francisco, CA, Life Changing Ministries, Oakland, CA, Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA, Human Resources, Los Angeles, CA, Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA, and “New Cities Future Ruins,” Dallas, TX. 

Postcommodity is Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist. The performance will be followed by a Q+A with the group moderated by Gean Moreno, one of the 2017 Biennial advisors.

Tickets are required ($15 adults; $12 members, students, and seniors).
