$10 / PWYC admission. Surreal and shimmering, VERSA is catching eyes and ears with powerful instrumental music and immersive analog projections. Alex Ricci’s psychedelic bass guitar leads feature in expansive and progressive soundscapes. Visually, Monika Hauck uses cymatics to illustrate physical vibrations of music. Her colourful synesthetic display is projected centre stage. The collective is rounded out by Will Vandermay’s appropriately outrageous, narrative drumming, and the jagged attack of Danny B’s sax.
VERSA has performed at major arts and music events such as Hillside Festival, Nuit Blanche, Wavelength Music Festival, Supernova Burlington, Hamilton Art Crawl, Nuit Blanche Ottawa/Gatineau, and Futurera. They are on tour in August en route to Hold Fast Contemporary Art Festival in St. John’s NL.
