Night Vision is a conceptual multimedia collaboration interweaving music, visual art, and performance to explore the polarities between the visible and invisible, the natural and the supernatural; internal experience of gender, senses of heightened awareness, and encounters with spirits of the unseen world. The music of Night Vision is the upcoming album by A Stick and A Stone, which entwines creepy banjo, electric bass, fluttering harp, heavy percussion, and soaring vocal harmonies with lyrics alluding to cosmos, ghosts, inner gender, and apocalypse. Each song of Night Vision will be brought to light through corresponding pieces of performance and visual art. Accompanying the songs that invoked them, these will demonstrate how music, though invisible, can conjure images and movements in our bodies and minds. Shadow projections by Sean Glass and Karl Wheeler will flicker across the stage during The Moon’s Craters. Experimental drag persona Ruby L.L. Voyager will transform from beast to cyborg during the song Vaccine. Acrobatics by The Dandy Vagabonds, performance art by Angela Vitacolonna and Shayna Sheness, dance by Jennifer Turnbull, puppetry by Valeska Pupuloh, and animation by You’ll Get Cursed Out There (Adelaide Windsome), each performing to the song they have chosen, will take the audience across the journey of Night Vision’s subconscious underworlds. Original artwork accompanying each song will also be on display at the show. Including the alchemical oddities of Corina Dross, the mesmerizing mindscapes of Justin Duerr, the stark graphics of Erik Ruin, as well as original work by Mandy Katz, Fiona Bearclaw, Jill Lavetsky, Abby Miller, Joshum Harpy, Katrina Avocado, Aaron Porter, and Annie Mok, the illustrations will be printed as a set of posters included with the album.
