Postcard from the Badlands

w/ special guest Ravenna String Quartet

8-10pm

Atmospheric music ensemble Postcard from the Badlands, in collaboration with Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound (MIPoPS) and visual projectionist Torin Kovach presents: NAER VAER.

The band performs their music composed exclusively for archival film footage curated by MIPoPS and for the Fjord Hall space itself, a first for this icy geologic space. Much of the footage comes from the Nordic Museum's archives as well as the UW and Seattle Municipal Archives and even old home videos. The montage and music, echoing narratives from the museum itself, represent themes of creation, community, conquest, migration, labor and play. 

 Naer Vaer- Literally means "close dwelling"  and metaphorically conveys a feeling of togetherness, presence, attendance, and deep connection with someone or something. The film footage and musical pieces likewise explore our deeper and often contradictory connections to each other and the natural world.

Ravenna String Quartet will open the show performing modern and classical pieces from Nordic Composers and will be featured guests during the Postcard performance.
