Me and Lucia are going to be one of the acts playing live at the Oboro in Canada, on Saturday March 3rd.
It is the first live performance we have done together since our MK Gallery work almost a year ago, of which our album on Dragon's Eye Recordings is based.
As well as us performing, Robert Crouch and David Kristian will be playing that same day, with works/screenings from us and many others.
I've pasted the details below, and also you can view them at the following link.
Hope to meet some of you there :)

Sublimation is an exhibition featuring a range of audio-visual works created by eight international artists, curated in response to the concept of the 'Sublime Environment': the saturation of both sonic and visual landscapes, represented by works of absorbing sound and visual art.
On the opening day of Sublimation, the exhibition will be complimented by three live performances and an audio screening by ten international artists in the form of immersive sonic environments and contemplative sound sculpture.
The sensory environment of the exhibition together with the live performances and audio screening will envelop the audience in both an emotional and visceral experience: drawn equally from sonic and visual spectrums.Helen Frosi is an artist and curator with an interest in sonic and olfactory arts, currently based in London (UK). Helen is co-founder and creative director at SoundFjord the UK's first sound-devoted gallery and research unit. As a serial collaborator with nomadic tendencies, Helen has programmed internationally for organisations and festivals as well as creative and unconventional arts spaces. Recent projects include screenings, performance and installations for, among others, Apiary Studios (UK), Café Oto (UK), Dragonfly Festival (SE), Galerie8 (UK), Gorey Arts and Film Festival (IE), ICA (UK), Pigeon Wing (UK).
