  • DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.

  • Pleasure Dome and The Drake are pleased to present a curated selection of Sabrina Ratté’s video works followed by a live performance by Le Révélateur, making their Toronto debut.

    Since 2009, Montréal artist Sabrina Ratté has been meticulously crafting and dismantling entire worlds. Wedding the boundary-pushing exploration of early computer art with the boundlessness of natural vistas, Ratté’s work approaches the digital sublime through the lens of media archaeology, building and blurring landscapes with the grace of a neon Turner or Friedrich.

    From early works of still and moving images subjected to myriad manipulations—rendering natural and built environments as malleable as computer code—the program will also highlight recent projects, with Ratté further exploring the play of light, depth, and magnetism within wholly digital images. In addition to personal video work, installations, music videos, and visual art, Ratté has closely collaborated for many years with musician Roger Tellier-Craig (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Fly Pan Am) as Le Révélateur, who will present a special A/V performance. DJ set by Anti Hero (Jokers of the Scene).
