OZ Arts welcomes back world-renowned scratch DJ, music producer and graphic novelist Kid Koala with his newest, interactive work, Satellite. In Satellite, the follow-up to the his Nufonia Must Fall Live—presented by OZ Arts in 2016—the audience is seated, four per table, and equipped with a turntable, an effects box and a small crate of color-coded vinyl records. Through subtle colored lighting changes in the room, the audience is cued to play along, becoming an “ambient vinyl orchestra” accompanying Kid Koala, melding their individual strains into a fluid body of sound. Together, these harmonized turntables create a unique, uplifting and dynamic evening of light and music.
Satellite completes a trilogy of popular Kid Koala “quiet time” events that originated at Toronto’s Luminato Festival, beginning with 2013’s Space Cadet Headphone Concert and continuing with 2014’s widely acclaimed Nufonia Must Fall Live.
Kid Koala has released four solo albums on Ninja Tune, including, most recently, 12 Bit Blues. He has also released two graphic novels, Nufonia Must Fall and Space Cadet, and has also been involved in collaborations such as Gorillaz, Deltron 3030, and The Slew. Kid Koala has toured with the likes of Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, Arcade Fire, Money Mark, A Tribe Called Quest, Mike Patton, DJ Shadow and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He has contributed to scores for the films Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Looper and The Great Gatsby. He has composed music for The National Film Board of Canada, the Cartoon Network, Sesame Street, and Adult Swim, and has also been commissioned to create music for runway shows for Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten.
Kid Koala’s unforgettable live shows range from silly touring turntable carnivals like Short Attention Span Theater (featuring turntable bingo) and Vinyl Vaudeville (including puppets and dancers) to quiet-time events like Music to Draw to and his Space Cadet Headphone Experience. He lives in Montreal with his wife and two daughters.
