August 29: Housewarming Party – The Institute for Art and Olfaction

A party in Chinatown, with nice people getting drunk, music and perfume.  I mean… What more could you possibly hope for, out of your saturday night?

Join us to celebrate our expansion into our new home in Chinatown! We worked hard to find this lovely space, we’ve worked hard to make it nice, we’re sharing it with the wonderful artist Bettina Hubby, and we want to party with you. There’s really not much more to it than that.

Well… Actually there is.

We have a special guest. The fantastic people from SNOWBLINK, direct from Toronto and just recently committed to LA, leading an aromatic slow dance.

It’s going to be a special night.



Date: Saturday August 28, 2015
Time: 8pm to late
Location: IAO HQ – 932 Chung King Road, Los Angeles CA 90012
RSVP: Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page. It’s free, but it helps us plan.

Snowblink_bigger'Snowblink has released two critically acclaimed records on Fire and Arts & Crafts. The band has toured extensively through North America and Europe, both as a headliner and as support for Jeff Tweedy, Bahamas, Timber Timbre, and Owen Pallett.

In 2012, Snowblink was invited by Leslie Feist to join her band at the Polaris Prize gala. The evening resulted in the creation of the seven-headed collaborative superband, Hydra, which went on to tour summer festivals in 2014. The band performs songs from the Feist, Snowblink and AroarA catalog.

In addition to featured soundtrack contributions (NPR’s Radiolab, Stand Clear of the Closing Doors (Tribeca Film Festival), The National Parks Project (NFB)),  2014 saw Gesundheit featured alongside Brian Eno on Owen Pallett’s In Conflict, and Zammuto’s  (formerly The Books) Anchor as vocalist and co-writer. She also staged Returning Current, a collaboration with acoustic biologist Katy Payne (The Song of the Humpback Whale), which assembled choirs in different cities in North America to apprentice themselves to the musicality of Humpback Whales and African Elephants.

Gesundheit has collaborated with and/or contributed to recordings by Ed Droste, Brendan Canning, Bahamas, MGMT, Thom Gill, Nat Baldwin (The Dirty Projectors), Joachim Cooder, Frank Lyon, and Tony Dekker, and Snowblink will be featured on Chris Hadfield’s forthcoming LP (Fall 2015 Warner Brothers), the first record ever to be recorded in space.
