Dark Hand and Lamplight Come to Toronto

Dark Hand and Lamplight are in town this week as part of Pleasure Dome. Dark Hand and Lamplight are a collaboration of Toronto musician Doug Paisley and artist Shary Boyle. A truly amazing musical and visual project. They are in Toronto this weekend after a celebrated tour in the US opening for Will Oldham (PRINCE “BONNIE” BILLY, PALACE, WILL OLDHAM, THE CONTINENTAL OP). For the project “Dark Hand and Lamplight”, Paisley wrote a collection of songs which Boyle uses as the basis for live drawings. Dark Hand creates art that surrounds Lamplight. The two feed off each other’s material often coming up with interesting improvisations.

Dark Hand and Lamplight share the stage with Liss Platt. Platt will be premiering a newly edited version of “You Can’t Get There From Here”. The film will be projected using a bicycle-powered 16mm projector ( designed by Petra Chevrier and Martin Heath).

See Dark Hand and Lamplight this Saturday as part of Pleasure Dome – Live Projections!
