Waterlou House Concert with You Are Here (YAH) Duo

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
You Are Here (YAH) Duo
Paul Plimley, piano, vibraphone and electric guitar with effects
Vitoria Gibson, live visual processing, electric guitar with effects and samples
Improvised electro-acoustic music and visuals online
– not our usual house concert!
In September, we presented a trio concert online because we were permitted up to 6 people indoors.
We respect the current BC health lockdown, so cannot present with our usual format.
Trio plus technician = 4 different households.
Due to the lockdown that will remain in place indefinitely, we will feature the YAH Duo =2 with Victoria in the dual role of fulfilling her usual technical role while playing in the ensemble and controlling live visuals.
Both musicians will wear masks, so live vocals are not possible.
Stay safe and enjoy live performance online.
Documentary video selections will be posted a few days after the concert.
ABOUT: You Are Here
(YAH Duo)
YAH was founded in 2011 to explore electroacoustic performance and has performed at Sonic Boom Festival and UBC in Gessler Hall. In 2020, visual artist, Elizabeth Barnes used some of their recorded music for her animated film, “We Are the Glitch”. https://elizabethbarnes.ca/news.html
Victoria Gibson has developed her career as an electroacoustic composer/performer. Her compositions usually include visual and audio components with interactive improvisation. She has performed her work and installed installations, both nationally and internationally
Paul Plimley is best known as an adventurous piano player, vibraphonist and guitar player. Noone would describe Paul’s playing as conventional, as he explores extended techniques in addition to using his personal harmonic and tonal language. However, he is now stepping further outside the conventions of piano and vibraphone to introduce audiences to new and amazing sonic textures.
