HI TIGER !!
Le Petit Versailles, 346 East Houston Street
Curators Kris Nuzzi and Sur Rodney (Sur) in conjunction with NOT OVER: 25 Year of Visual AIDS invite you to join Hi Tiger Saturday June 1st @ 9pm
at Le Petit Versailles
346 East Houston St. @ Avenue C
Their work is at once ethereal and hard-hitting, groovy and confrontational, and loaded with steamy politics and dramatics…it’s a brave, even fearless album…
-Jakob Battick, Dispatch Magazine
Hi Tiger was formed in August 2010 by visual artist, Derek Jackson. Like an accident you slow down to look at, they have been referred to as Art Punk, serious business of tragedy, and glamorous sex machines. Their post-punk debut album, "i love music", was recorded at Forest City Studio and released August 5th, 2011.
In a set designed specifically for the exhibition NOT OVER, Hi Tiger is joined by Jacob Pitcher, of the band Contrapposto. The structured improvisation is titled "In Our Sick Society" and incorporates live mixing and beat mastering, vocals and triggered samples to create a sound that recalls 90's trip-hop... but way more spacey.
Hi Tiger is Derek Jackson (vocals, keys) and Julian Heughan (mix master, beats).
