Stay Strange

Stay Strange presents an evening of Experimental Music

In collaboration with San Diego based noise-music, art collective Stay Strange, ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station will present Hand of God: Conceptualizing Spirituality Through Experimental Music in the Historic North Chapel. This FREE event features renowned local and national experimental musicians as well as spoken word and prayer to create a new and daring interpretation of religion, spirituality and the after-life.

The program will commence at 6:00 PM with iconoclastic spoken word artist Michael Zimmerman reading a prayer from the chapel pulpit.

Patrons will be invited to anonymously submit a written declaration of any sins they may have committed for soprano Meghann Welsh to sing out from the choir loft. Progressive tubist, Jonathon Piper will accompany Meghann as Codex Confiteor. Codex Confiteor has been described as ‘Medieval Organum Meets Doom Metal.’ They will perform in-between every artist throughout the evening.

Fatima Courroux will also be on hand in the small sanctuary from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM to read from her tarot deck to any willing participants. Donations kindly accepted.

Stay Strange is a monthly music series that caters to the adventurous listener. They present evenings of abstract, noise, outsider music & art. Audience members are encouraged to not only listen with open ears, but with open minds.
