The Shire City Sanctuary – formerly the Notre Dame church in Pittsfield’s Upstreet Cultural District – comes alive with electronic music duo Home Body and DJ BFG for the Fantastic February Frolic, an alternative dance party at 8pm on Saturday (February 13).
Part of the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival, the Fantastic February Frolic will be the acclaimed electronica duo’s Pittsfield debut. Home Body brings a fresh tangibility to electronic-based music, creating songs that are wildly original. Their sound has been described as new-wavy-electronic-a’pop’calyptic-shimmer-core that’s down to earth, vivid and visceral. An expert synthesist, Eric Hnatow uses old-school Korg synthesizers, drum machines, and note sequencers to build dark glitzy pop songs full of drive and surprise. Haley Morgan’s vocals are beautiful, bold and uninhibited, exhibiting playful raw soul. Magnetic live, their animated performances include exuberant dancing and dramatic manual light manipulation, resulting in an eccentric spectacle which amplifies their music.
