Matt Reilly of Japanther jamming on his casio.
Japanther and collaborators rehearsing on the tower structures being built in EMPAC's Studio 1—Goodman for their performance, The Cake of the 3 Towers.
The three towers are prison, museum, and (housing) project, albeit loosely. Music, video, and performance draw parallel lines between the three industrial archetypes. Moving through these structures, the artists utilize fragments of their environment to envision a utopian creative endgame. Meanwhile, an Austrian super villain (Florian Reither) attempts to unite and destroy the dystopian worlds. The Cake of The 3 Towers (TCo3T) is a collaborative project featuring Japanther, Schuyler Maehl, Florian Reither, and Felice Faison.
