RATIO — a new space / I HAVE EATEN THE CITY tape launch

IMG_7548I have been busy with several different things in the past while.  On top of completing additional material for two forthcoming albums—Endless Conjecture (coming out on Orange Milk) and Exaptations (for Notice Recordings), I’ve also been scoring Terrance Odette‘s new film, Fall, working with Deepti Gupta toward cellocentric music for a new solo dance piece for her, and working as one of seven others open the new venue Ratio.

The new space is a mere few steps west of Spadina on the south side of College on the second floor.  It’s not super large but ideal for intimate concerts — either acoustic or amplified.  And we’re hoping it won’t just be a music venue.  I could certainly imagine it hosting other types of performance, screenings, and serving as a gallery.

Our fundraising event gave us a really strong sense of its potential and we’re really excited to see this carried through.  Here some links to Ratio’s Twitter page, Facebook page, and still-under-construction website.  Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming events!

On Friday July 25th we are hosting a launch for I Have Eaten The City’s tape Secret Paths on Manchester UK label Tombed Visions.  Doors at 9pm.
