Becky Ninkovic’s band You Say Party toured the world and long-listed for the Polaris Prize before the tragic loss of their drummer, Devon Clifford.
From this devastating moment, Becky found herself in the deep end of a mental health crisis. Wordless melodies and beats gestated through these years, though they were never intended for public release. Finally, Becky began to develop a sense of resiliency, hope for her artistic process—and for life itself-through therapeutic work, motherhood and the process of recording the Woe LP.
Now Becky is leading a community spirited initiative, including the formation of a multimedia-enhanced choir to perform Woe. A robust body of voices elevates these songs up, out, and away, while shadows turn to hypnotic repetitions of colours, and compelling visuals project a slow and intricate creative healing process through sound, movement, and textile art.”
