A Warm Weather Ghost, World Premiere/Walker Commission
“Adebimpe hasn’t lost his appreciation for the visual arts, or his drive to express himself in realms other than music.” —Stereogum Digest
Frontman and artistic ace of the eclectic indie rock band TV on the Radio, Tunde Adebimpe creates a universe of song, story, and animation. Conceived of as a hero’s narrative pushed through a psychedelic fever dream, the surreal A Warm Weather Ghost unravels and bewilders. Be captivated as a crew of guest musicians and vocalists, narration, and large-scale projected visual art and animation by Adebimpe coalesce into a magically disorienting and unforgettable happening. Featuring Money Mark, Mia Doi Todd, Aaron Steele, Sean Okaguchi, Morgan Sorne, and Tracy Wannomae.
Copresented with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music Series and 89.3 The Current.
