The innovative music group, X: THC has confirmed an exclusive CMJ Music Marathon performance of the live music and film multimedia experience, X: The Human Condition at The Bowery Poetry Club, NYC on Wednesday, October 20 at 8:00 pm. This is an official CMJ showcase, so attendees with badges will enjoy free entry.
The band's hauntingly mysterious live performance is accompanied by X: THC's original film, X: The Human Condition, whose wistful and phantasmagorical imagery creates an inspiring and unforgettable experience. Citing Tim Burton, Michel Gondry, Darren Aronofsky, Jean Cocteau, and The Brothers Grimm as major influences, X: THC’s visual companion to the performance is a surrealistic, psychological trip inside the human subconscious.
Musically, X: THC combines chilled, shattered beats, soulful vibery, and edgy indie rock songwriting to create a lush, ambient soundscape. The songs conjure shades of new wave, electronica, and post-punk —yet they weave a seductive, hypnotic sound all their own. Just released several months ago, X: THC's music can be heard onboard Continental Airlines, Aircalin Airlines, on worldwide online radio, and over 100 terrestrial college radio stations nationwide.
Michael Nova, who created X: The Human Condition, has released X: The Human Condition, with a D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) aesthetic that persevered after over a decade of, at times, seemingly insurmountable challenges. During production, Michael lost his vision, but experienced a miraculous recovery, which in turn drove him to complete X: The Human Condition. Now he brings the work to the world, to inspire others to make a positive change as he did, and make a difference.
All proceeds from merchandise sales from this performance will be donated to The Jed Foundation (www.halfofus.com) and AFSP (www.afsp.org).
