BIG SOUNDS + LIGHTS – by Chapel Sound
The group’s mandate is to push creative expression forward without boundaries or prejudice. Bringing people together through events, collaborations and cross-pollination with other local crews has played an important role for Chapel in realizing this ambition. The shared philosophy of openness and inclusion is among the main drivers of their continued expansion. This year, two Chapel Sound members – Ekali and Jade Statues – were accepted to the global Red Bull Music Academy, while Kline and Eli Muro were accepted to the RBMA Bass Camp in Montreal. At home, the Chapel crew stays busy nurturing the arts community as well as engaging with emerging producers and beatmakers through their Beat Critique events.
ART BATTLE® – https://vimeo.com/203488527
Art Battle is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process. The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home. Art Battle happens in 50 cities worldwide, check artbattle.com for local listings!
