As part of Jacolby Satterwhite’s exhibition You’re at home, PAT—comprised of the artist and musician Nick Weiss (of Teengirl Fantasy)—will perform songs from the duo’s newly released double LP album, titled Love Will Find A Way Home. Within the album, a capella recordings of original songs left behind by Satterwhite’s mother Patricia are remixed and manipulated into propulsive, electronic dance tracks that feature a range of other collaborators. Utilizing the album soundscape as the auditory point of inspiration, the performance will synthesize live choral renditions and thematic light transitions into a holistic live-scoring of Satterwhite’s animated works, including the multipart series Blessed Avenue. Guests from the album will also make special appearances throughout the evening.
Nick Weiss began his music career as one-half of Teengirl Fantasy, an ever-evolving electronic music duo established in 2009. Weiss and bandmate Logan Takahashi’s music as Teengirl Fantasy has been described by critics as “dream-beat,” an atmospheric yet driving sound that pulls elements from deep house to shoegaze. Weiss participated in the 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo under his new solo production guise Nightfeelings, and has since co-produced albums for artists ranging from SSION’s noise pop to Lafawndah’s ritual club music. For the past three years, Weiss has collaborated with Jacolby Satterwhite on re-imagining his mother Patricia’s a capella songs as electronic odysseys.
PAT: You’re at home is presented as part of the Performa 19 Biennial.
