A not be missed, one off, surreal, 3D, off-world and live audio visual event by local musician Fiona Soe Paing is taking place at Aberdeen’s Union Square Cineworld tomorrow (October 9th 2014).
The “Alien Lullabies” show forms part of Aberdeen’s first International Film Festival. Fiona Soe Paing is a highly regarded, Aberdeenshire based, electronic music producer and vocalist. This exciting event is the latest in a series of innovative and highly praised creations.
Fiona will be previewing new tracks from her forthcoming album “Alien Lullabies”. Fresh from presenting work at London’s global festival of music ideas, Music Tech Fest, Fiona will perform with projected animation by New Zealand artist Zennor Alexander.
The show is a hypnotic combination of cinema screening and live gig. Although, often drawing comparisons to experimental Scandinavian songstresses Bjork and Fever Ray, Fiona’s ethereal soundscapes, alien lullabies and bent-out-of shape dancehall tracks have a totally unique sound. The show also comprises stunning 3D animations and creates an immersive and memorable live experience.
In 2012, Fiona received funding from Creative Scotland to help develop further innovative multi-media creations. The resulting EP release, Tower of Babel, received the following international reviews:
An astounding performance…some of the most beautiful live music I’ve heard in ages. – David Marren, Louder Than War blog
Stylish, elegant and sinister…obscure electronica, minimal beats and exotic voice merge seamlessly with animated visuals to evolve into a multi-media artwork. – Scott Kara, New Zealand Herald
A tough but sensual slice of modern electronica…extraordinary vocals… Mark Shukla, The Skinny
…hit songs from a decaying future… – To Eleven blog, USA
A masterful game of seductive and uncanny sounds that steadily pulls you in to its claustrophobic world. – Sound Injections, Greece
The performance of Alien Lullabies takes place at 20:30 on Thursday 9th October 2014. The venue is Cineworld, Union Square Aberdeen. Tickets are priced £7 and available from Cineworld Union Square Box Office.
