Kick off your weekend with a performance by VERSA! On the Fourth Friday of the month, Guelph Museums offers free admission to the Guelph Civic Museum after 5 p.m. Performance by VERSA at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
VERSA is a Guelph ON-based audiovisual collective led by Monika Hauck and Alex Ricci. The duo create powerful instrumental music written around live looping bass guitar, and pair this with responsive projections that visualize sound. Low frequency sound is passed through a subwoofer into a liquid bath. This creates undulating, cymatic patterns in the liquid, into which Hauck drops coloured ink. The entire process is captured and projected as a synesthetic accompaniment to the performance. VERSA has performed at numerous Canadian music and art events including Hillside Festival, Electric Eclectics, Hold Fast Contemporary Arts Festival, Kazoo! Fest, Wavelength Music Festival, Shine On and Nuit Blanche Ottawa/Gatineau.
