10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Hosted by Los Angeles-based DJ and journalist Chris Kissel, the monthly dublab program Contact Wave enthusiastically celebrates the best experimental, avant-garde, psychedelic, and off-the-grid music crafted in L.A. and beyond.
This week’s episode features a guest performance by White Boy Scream — Los Angeles-based experimental vocalist, sound artist, and teacher Micaela Tobin. Specializing in contemporary opera, Micaela dissects her operatic singing style through the use of extended vocal techniques and electronics, in an attempt to undermine the patriarchal constructs embedded in her classical training. She has performed extensively throughout the western United States, most notably as a guest with hip-hop experimentalists and Sub Pop signees clipping. during their tour in support of The Flaming Lips. Micaela’s work, which most recently includes a full length release called Remains on Crystalline Morphologies (Gabie Strong), has been compared to Diamanda Galás. Micaela is currently on faculty in the VoiceArts department at the California Institute for the Arts and teaches privately out of her home in Pasadena.
