The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) presents Album Release Concert for Local Artist Anna Baignoche's Newest Album Becoming. On Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 7:00, Baignoche will be performing songs from Becoming live on stage at MOV for the first time.
Becoming, is a product of seven years of hard work by Baignoche and is an amalgam of acoustic and electronic music, dirt and wires, paint over a photograph, love over hate, pure joy and deep sorrow. It is her 3rd studio album, and by far her most ambitious.
“I love when electronic music compliments acoustic music,” says Baignoche, excited to play with new electronic music sounds and forms she had never experimented with. “We’ve had so much fun messing around with sound, colour,” says Baignoche, “I’m not a painter, but I feel like we’ve been painting with sound, it feels very visual, cinematic.”
Baignoche merges many aspects of her life and inspiration on this album and performance. Her life has been full of travel and other languages. She writes in Spanish and Portuguese, having lived in Brazil and Cuba for a period of time. On Avalanche Love, Baignoche sings half in English and half in Portuguese, telling the tale of one New Year's Eve on the Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro celebrating with millions of people all wearing white to another New Year's Day, lost in the mountains of interior BC on a ski trip.
Baignoche's band features an impressive line-up of musicians working in Vancouver's pop, folk, Latin music scenes. Opening for Baignoche is her musical and life partner, Andy Tabb and his band, The Andy Tabb Welcome Band.
This concert will be hosted in MOV's intimate 200 seat theatre. A drink bar will be offered during the opening set by the Andy Tabb Welcome Band in the building's scenic Joyce Walley Room.
Early Bird Tickets (before October 9) are $35 for Adults, $30 for Seniors, Students and MOV Members. Following October 9 Tickets are $40 for Adults, $35 for Seniors, Students and MOV Members.
Tickets are available on the Museum of Vancouver website museumofvancouver.ca and in person or by telephone at the museum’s visitor services (604-736-4431).
