L’expérience Space Cadet Headphone de Kid Koala





Space Cadet, un projet multimédia de Kid Koala, comprend un roman graphique de plus d’une centaine de pages + une trame sonore et une performance sans semblable.

Le concert « casque à écouteurs Space Cadet » de Kid Koala immergent les spectateurs dans son histoire, sa musique, son art, son univers. Dès leurs arrivés, les participants passent à travers la gallérie dans lequel se trouvent les gravures originales du roman, une console de l’espace musicale, des réplicas de plantes du cosmos et d’autres collections étranges. Pour surligner les détails subtils dans la musique et de la thématique d’isolement/de solitude dans l’histoire, chaque membre du public porte son propre casque à écouteurs pour éprouver le concert. Ceci est une performance solo de Kid Koala avec 4 plaques tournantes et piano qui est captée par caméra espionne dans la salle, mixé avec des images et des animations provenant du roman.

Kid Koala, CRÉATEUR & INTERPRÈTE

Kid Koala est un DJ mondialement reconnu, un producteur de musique et un auteur de romans illustrés primé. Il a sorti quatre albums solo sur l’étiquette Ninja Tune, le plus récent étant 12 Bit Blues. Il a également publié deux romans illustrés : Nufonia Must Fall et Space Cadet. De plus, il a collaboré avec des artistes tels que Gorillaz, Deltron 3030 et The Slew.

Kid Koala a déjà participé aux tournées de Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, Arcade Fire, Money Mark, A Tribe Called Quest, Mike Patton, DJ Shadow et The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Il a contribué aux bandes originales des films Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Looper et The Great Gatsby. Il a composé de la musique pour l’Office National du Film du Canada, le Cartoon Network, Sesame Street et Adult Swim. Il a aussi été mandaté pour la création de musique servant lors de défilés de mode pour le designer de mode belge Dries Van Noten. Le répertoire inoubliable de performances en direct de Kid Koala passe de rocambolesques carnavals de tables tournantes comme Short Attention Span Theater (avec un bingo de tables tournantes) et Vinyl Vaudeville (avec des marionnettes et des danseurs) à des évènements plus tranquilles tels que Music To Draw To, Space Cadet Headphone Experience et plus récemment Nufonia Must Fall Live.

Kid Koala vie à Montréal avec sa femme et ses deux filles.

Presse

"Turntablism doesn't tend to be a cuddly genre, but somewhere between leading pre-show games of Plinko, re-imagining his instrumental ballads as vocoderized Acura commercials, refereeing thumb wars, giggling adorably and leading the audience through Yo Gabba Gabba dance routines while wearing a fuzzy koala suit, it became obvious that the eminently likeable San couldn't fully commit to gloom and shadow even if he tried. He's just too gosh darn playful." - Richard Trapunski, NOW Toronto

"A mix of sentimental Wurlitzer, Eno’s Apollo ambience, Philip Jeckian drones and frenetic scratching; Cadet is gorgeous — maybe even his most mature work to date" - Christopher R. Weingarten, SPIN

"Highlights of the graceful space lullaby provide an architecture to the show. San himself is the wizard of it all, but he doesn't attract attention to himself. Rather, it's the overall multidimensional experience that matters." - Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail
