Wanlov The Kubolor : Heaven Dey Burn

The Artist Concert / Aug. 17th, 2019

Watch Wanlov The Kubolor perform “Heaven Dey Burn” at The Artist Concert- The Cube EP4

The Artist Concert is a social experiential experiment by Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin that fuses art, design, music and human interaction.

The concerts operate as non-conventional experiential spaces where artists are made to reveal emotions they might normally hide during performances. For our first series we designed a cube space which, because of space and distance, demands that the musicians be highly intimate. This intimacy is felt through the performance and connects the artists to the audience. This in turn affects the way the audience listens to the music, which we have found creates a hybrid atmosphere that invites both the performer and audience into a new experience.

With music we give full creative freedom to the musician, to be selfish in creating a performance that is based on how they feel, what they like, and experiments they have always wanted to try. They go into the performance knowing that the audience will accept whatever they give, and the power is then returned to the musician. This gives back agency to the musician so that you can almost immediately see how they switch from working to serve the audience into enjoying the performance for themselves.

In this series the contemporary visual artist Dr Serge Attukwei Clottey integrates into the design and the music, silently becoming the piece that links the three forms into a full experience.

“With The Artist Concert Series I am trying to break the traditional ideas of what a performance should be like, support the merging of forms, help creatives open up to new ideas, hybrid experiences and open the audience to alternate experiences” Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin, The Art Concept Founder & Creative Director.

The Artist Concert gave me the resources, time, & space to dig deep into my unreleased experiments & teach it to conversant musicians who would later help me share it with an audience of seekers. The Artist Concert gave me the conditions I forgot I needed to share works that may never have seen the light of day. Professional and well themed out.–Wanlov The Kubolor.
