TIME TO GET SENSELESS
Saturday, July 9, Toronto’s roster of remarkable summer events includes the inaugural, immersive, full sensory party, Senseless. Brought by For The People, and located at Evergreen Brick Works, an event space huddled amidst Toronto’s urban green ravines, the event promises to be an incredible, permeative (is that a word?) musical experience.
From stunning 3D mapping and animation, to LED art and digital painting from local artists, including multi-media artist, and Senseless curator, Amal Peerzada, the visual context looks to be lush and interactive. Textile constructions will be on site for the tactile at heart, as well as Subpac, a wearable, immersive music technology that transfers low frequencies to your body, adding a more somatic, physical dimension to the sonic landscape.
Fine foods from local vendors will take care of your taste buds, with a special culinary show by Chef Joe Friday, and the air will be imbued by aromas and scents.
The main attraction sonically includes an international line-up of serious talent including the innovative Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Rodriguez Jr, Kittball Records bosses, Tube & Berger, Taimur & Fahad of New York’s Blkmarket Membership, as well as Maher Daniel and local favourite, Nitin. The entire curated line-up of both local and international talent is outstanding and ensures a richly textured audio voyage.
