MOV presents Anna Baignoche's Album Release Concert for 'Becoming'The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) presents Album Release Concert for Local Artist Anna Baignoche's Newest Album Becoming. On Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 7:00, Baignoche will be performing songs from Becoming live on stage at MOV for the first time.

Becoming, is a product of seven years of hard work by Baignoche and is an amalgam of acoustic and electronic music, dirt and wires, paint over a photograph, love over hate, pure joy and deep sorrow. It is her 3rd studio album, and by far her most ambitious.

"I love when electronic music compliments acoustic music," says Baignoche, excited to play with new electronic music sounds and forms she had never experimented with. "We've had so much fun messing around with sound, colour," says Baignoche, "I'm not a painter, but I feel like we've been painting with sound, it feels very visual, cinematic."

Baignoche merges many aspects of her life and inspiration on this album and performance. Her life has been full of travel and other languages. She writes in Spanish and Portuguese, having lived in Brasil and Cuba for a period of time. On Avalanche Love, Baignoche sings half in English and half in Portuguese, telling the tale of one New Year's Eve on the Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro celebrating with millions of people all wearing white to another New Year's Day, lost in the mountains of interior BC on a ski trip. The musical influences on the album are eclectic to say the least, ranging from folk to jazz to pop to country, and latin music. Her musical mentors are Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Joao Gilberto, Stan Getz, Cassandra Wilson, Cat Power, MiLes Davis, Marisa Monte, Bebel Gilberto, Sigur Ros, and Miriam Makeba.

Baignoche's band features an impressive line-up of musicians working in Vancouver's pop, folk, Latin music scenes: Michael Simpsonelli - guitar (Jason Burnstick); Stephen Nikleva - guitar (Ferron, Mae Moore, Sarah McLachlan, Petunia); Simon Kendall - Piano/accordion (Doug and the Slugs); Niho Takase - Piano (Mazacote); Michel Bruyere on drum kit (Buffy St. Marie); Johnny Walsh - Bass (Brasstronaut, Dan Mangan); Elliot Vaughan (The End Tree); Martin Reisle (Maria in the Shower, The End Tree) and Malcolm Aiken - trumpet (Mazacote).

Opening for Baignoche is her musical and life partner, Andy Tabb and his band, The Andy Tabb Welcome Band, which includes Baignoche on cello, guitar and backup vocals along with Katheryn Petersen on accordion, Elliot Vaughn on viola, and Martin Reisle on cello and banjo.

This concert will be hosted in MOV's intimate 200 seat theatre. A drink bar will be offered during the opening set by the Andy Tabb Welcome Band in the building's scenic Joyce Walley Room.
