Lea Cummings is perhaps best known for his solo performances as Kylie Minoise, garnering a considerable reputation for his loud, confrontational Live Aktions. Often brief, they invariably culminate in broken microphones and, occasionally, in personal injury. Described in The Wire as “a short sharp shock of slobbering one-man hara-kiri and gonzo pantomime nihilism”, these performances capture the raw, cathartic spontaneity of Cummings’ aesthetic and he has toured extensively with this project. Interviewed by Plan B, he said “Kylie Minoise is the side of me that likes to make a few cracks in normality, cause a bit of discomfort and increase a few pulses.”

DISCORD: EXPERIMENTS IN ANTI-MUSIC
The Discord concert series has been Calgary’s haven for extreme experimental music for the past three years. The monthly evenings happen in the EMMEDIA Screening Room, and has played host to the most interesting and cutting edge experimental contemporary musicians active today. Every event is different, with genres ranging from Free Jazz, to Pure Industrial, Harsh Noise, Electro-Acoustic, and beyond.
