Previously at the ICA - Events
18 Oct 2008 – 19 Oct 2008
In anticipation of the ICA cinema's screening of Beautiful Losers during this year's London Film Festival, and for the end of the Frieze Art Fair, we welcome The Sads, a Los Angeles-based musical project fronted by artist and Beautiful Losers director Aaron Rose, for two very special October afternoons.
Also featuring David Scott Stone (Melvins, Locust) and Aska Matsumiya (Moonrats) on keys and accordion, and Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse) on drums, The Sads will present a series of 'silent' performances listened to exclusively on headphones emanating from their equipment/set up.
The 'silent show' has toured arts spaces in Europe and the US to rapturous reception and features the band playing all electronic instruments in the round. This will be a happening of new material following a triumphant performance in June at the Westwood Art Forum in LA that saw the silent Sads alongside a six-channel video installation by designer/filmmaker Mike Mills.
Each performance lasts 30 minutes.
