Basic Nature w/ Palm Trees, Tim Hoover
The Good Will Social Club
Tues Jan 26, 2016
The Good Will Social Club & The New Music Festival are proud to present:
Basic Nature is a nugaze/dream pop/90’s-feel duo from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Their musical influence for their debut album Circles & Lines stems primarily from Slowdive’s album Souvlaki and have been compared to different groups including Beach House and Warpaint.
A seven-piece post-ambient/psychedelic/
orchestral/slowcore band from Winnipeg. Features members of Living Hour, Slow Spirit, Black Cloud, and Umami.
Tim Hoover has dropped the “Co-op” nickname and released a forward-thinking collection of music which straddles the line between DJ mix and instrumental album. Drawing samples and inspiration from a handful of both well-known and obscure tracks, Hoover composed 60 minutes of original music divided into 5 movements which sit together as a cohesive piece. Samples and melodies are introduced and referenced later in the piece, as the tempo, colour and even time signature shifts from track to track.
Doors at 8pm
Show at 9pm

The Miners Hymns and End of Summer - Johann Johannsson
Sat, Jan 30 / 9 pmThis year’s 25th anniversary of the Winnipeg New Music Festival features artists who will challenge, stimulate and provoke looking both back and to the future. In conjunction with the festival Cinematheque presents a special double bill of two remarkable works American independent filmmaker Bill Morrison’s (who often works with composer David Lang) stunning archival film The Miner’s Hymns and the premiere of Jóhann Jóhannsson’s End of Summer, a slow-burning journey through the austere landscapes of the island of South Georgia.
The Miner’s Hymns / Directed by Bill Morrison, 2010, USA, 52 min
The ill-fated coal mining communities in North East England are the subject of this beautiful film with a gorgeous and complex score by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. Using rarely-seen stunning B&W archival footage from the British Film Institute, the BBC, and other archives, this film celebrates the social, cultural, and political aspects of a vanished life – the Durham coalfield located in northeastern England.
End of Summer/Directed by Jóhann Jóhannsson, 2014, Iceland/Denmark, 28 min
Shot on black and white super 8 film, Jóhann Jóhannsson’s ‘End of Summer’ is a hypnotic and slow-burning dérive through the austere landscapes of the island of South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. Filmed as a series of mostly static tableaux over a period of 20 days during the waning days of the Antarctic Summer, the film is a startling look at life at the edge of the world. Jóhann Jóhannsson is the composer of the score for Prisoners and The Theory of Everything.
