Angle X 2017 is a unique fusion of music and visual art.
This weekend our buddies over at Angle Magazine are hosting an event that aims to present a unique fusion of music and art. The Busan based group have been putting on great events for the past few years and this promises to be no exception.
There have been many really cool events that have mixed live music with with visual art. What makes Angle X so special is that both the audio and the visual will be mixed together on stage at the same time. In this way the barriers between creative mediums are being blurred until all that is left is creativity.
The bands and the artists have been paired together in the spirit of collaboration and, in a sense, opposition. To be presented in this way is to show how both forms of expression can compliment each other but also the individual qualities which make them particular practices special.
The line-up features some of Korea’s best up-and-coming indie bands and they’ve been paired with some of the county’s most exciting visual arts talent.
First off we have Busan based guitar-pop band Bosudong Cooler. They’ll be working with Exotic Beast’s Grace LaFace. LaFace is known best for her input into film sets where she paints luxurious backdrops.
Next up we’ll have Daegu psychedelic post-rock band Strkllr. Started by a group of expats who’ve all been playing in great bands for the past few years, their epic sound will be accompanied by the excellent, Changwon-based illustrator Garami. His interesting visuals translate ideas about intimacy in a modern world.
One of the most exciting acts on the list is Veil of Ignorvnce. They make intense and eccentric dance music that is not for the faint hearted. They’re a two-piece DJ outfit who have recently made the leap to live performances which is very exciting. They’ll appropriately be accompanied by irreverent Northern Irish painter/illustrator Niall Ruddy who’s socio-political subject matter will make this a very interesting performance.
Speaking of irreverence – the very awesome Kim Kyungdeok will also be making an appearance at Angle X 2017. His black-ink work mixes the imagery of Korean pop culture with a comic book aesthetic. All of this is delivered through the sharp, subversive eyes of Kyungdeok. He’ll be accompany rock pop band The Magus.
And finally, ahead of the release of their debut album, Masan-based Uncle Bob will be playing at this year’s Angle X. They’ll be working along side Michael Melson, the really cool graphics artist who designed the poster for the show.
With so many different bands and artists working together to present their work in such an original way, this is a must-see for anyone in the Busan area.
