X: THC TO PERFORM GROUNDBREAKING MUSIC AND FILM MULTIMEDIA EXPERIENCE, LIVE SEPTEMBER 16
Electronic/Alternative Indie Band Triumphs Over Challenges To Evolve And Redefine
How A Live Show Is Presented And Experienced Within The Model Of The Music Industry.
New York, NY- Aug. 18, 2010- The innovative music group, X: THC has confirmed an exclusive live performance of the live music and film multimedia experience, X: The Human Condition, to benefit The Jed Foundation and AFSP at The Tank Theater, NYC on Thursday, September 16 at 9:30 pm.
With the music industry searching for inspiration, X: THC has taken it upon themselves to blaze a new trail. The band's hauntingly mysterious live performance is accompanied by X: THC's original film, X: The Human Condition, whose wistful and phantasmagorical imagery creates an inspiring and unforgettable experience. Citing Tim Burton, Michel Gondry, Darren Aronofsky, Jean Cocteau, and The Brothers Grimm as major influences, X: THC’s visual companion to the performance is a surrealistic, psychological trip inside the human subconscious.
Musically, X: THC combines chilled, shattered beats, soulful vibery, and edgy indie rock songwriting to create a lush, ambient soundscape. The songs conjure shades of new wave, electronica, and post-punk —yet they weave a seductive, hypnotic sound all their own. Just released several months ago, X: THC's music can currently be heard onboard Continental Airlines, Aircalin Airlines, on worldwide online radio, and over 100 terrestrial college radio stations nationwide.
Michael Nova, who created X: The Human Condition, is an existential explorer. A powerful performer, composer, filmmaker and producer, Michael has released X: The Human Condition, with a D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) aesthetic that persevered after over a decade of, at times, seemingly insurmountable challenges. During production, Michael lost his vision, but experienced a miraculous recovery, which in turn drove him to complete X: The Human Condition. Now he brings the work to the world, to inspire others to make a positive change as he did, and make a difference.
All profits from ticket and album sales from this performance will be donated to The Jed Foundation (www.halfofus.com) and AFSP (www.afsp.org).
