Postcommodity / White Boy Scream / Carmina Escobar
February 24, 2016 8:00 pm
Postcommodity is an interdisciplinary arts collective comprised of Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist. Postcommodity’s art functions as a shared Indigenous lens and voice to engage the assaultive manifestations of the global market and its supporting institutions, public perceptions, beliefs, and individual actions that comprise the ever-expanding, multinational, multiracial and multiethnic colonizing force that is defining the 21st Century through ever increasing velocities and complex forms of violence. Postcommodity works to forge new metaphors capable of rationalizing our shared experiences within this increasingly challenging contemporary environment; promote a constructive discourse that challenges the social, political and economic processes that are destabilizing communities and geographies; and connect Indigenous narratives of cultural self-determination with the broader public sphere.
White Boy Scream
White Boy Scream is a solo experimental-music project that dissects the operatic qualities of the voice through a series of electronic effects pedals and looping stations. Micaela Tobin aims to dismantle and ultimately, reconcile, the construct of the classically-trained soprano within the genres of noise and drone.
“I am an experimental vocalist, performer, improviser, sound and intermedia artist from Mexico City. My work focuses primarily on the voice, the body and their interrelations to physical, social and memory spaces. At the moment I live and breath in Los Angeles, CA.”
