57-member avant-experientialists ITCHY-O announce their 3-night PURIFICATION CEREMONY at MEOW WOLF DENVER’s Convergence Station/Perplexiplex Theater, June 16-18
Supported by Ritualcravt, Twist + Shout Records and Youth On Record.
In the wake of recent physio-, psycho- and socio-logical ills, this sequence is constructed as a cleansing ritual to recenter humanity and drive out evil forces.
Each night will feature engineered psychoacoustic arrangements, inviting attendees to take part in the interlocking elemental themes of AIR, WATER, and FIRE.
Central to the ceremony, itchy-O is unveiling its SÖM SÄPTÄLAHN, a massive gamelan-inspired instrument cast in partnership with the Colorado School of Mines.
More than 300 pounds of metal donated as part of the group’s Broken Cymbal Drive were melted down to form the mellifluous monstrosity, which introduces a brand new seven-tone musical scale never before utilized in Eastern or Western composition.
Additionally, cutting-edge visual production and projection mapping planned within Meow Wolf’s already engulfing event space promises to elicit a synesthetic syncretic ecstasy, opening heretofore unexplored portals and empowering attendees to create space for good health and fortune, both individually and collectively.
This three-night stand comes hot off itchy-O’s sold out INTERGALACTIC MASQUERADE performance and costume contest at The O.
Supporting acts for each night consists of Denver heavyweights SPELLS (6/16), Don Chicharrón (6/17) and Church Fire (6/18)
Doors 8 p.m., show 9 p.m.
