Play ‘Games’ at Kaneko
June 7th, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”A leader in Omahaâ€™s experimental and new music scene, the Generator Series at Kaneko returns this Saturday with â€œGamesâ€. The concert features both local acts and returning alum of the Under the Radar Festival, all focused on making music playful.
Completing a maze might not seem like music, but Kelley Sheehanâ€™s device integrates hardware and software to translate in-game movements into an improvised sonic experience.
Alexa Dexa, returning to Omaha after performing in last yearâ€™s Under the Radar Festival, also comes with new ideas and tools for music. She has received a grant from Opera America, and she will be performing in a swimming pool â€”not just a set piece, but an integral part of the composition.
Before the show, guests can enjoy a cocktail hour and a number of electronic games to play for themselves. A childlike playfulness and â€œjoie de vivreâ€ are the heart of â€œGamesâ€, but cutting edge innovation and technology are its legs.
â€œGamesâ€, part of the Generator Series, is this Saturday, June 8 at Kaneko, featuring Kelley Sheehan, Alexa Dexa, and the Polka Police. Doors open at 6:00pm with the concert starting at 7:00. For more information or tickets, visit thekaneko.org.
