1 Day Away !

The big gig is tomorrow!
“ 
HYPNAGOGIA is the newest solo release from Nola Ranallo, mainly constructed from weavings, both dense and fragile, of her voice. Recorded at her home in Buffalo, NY during a vivid period of rehabilitation, growth, and redefinitions – this material came rushing towards Nola in defiance of sleep; in lieu of dream; as guides, as commands. 
Some of Earth’s greatest artisans helped this sound and vision to further flourish into a limited edition of 100 copies pressed onto Vinyl, self-released by Nola on her Moon Mask Records label.
This will be her record release show.

For this singular event, Nola will be presenting her music through the lens of a special ensemble created solely to transmit this nightmusic steeped in BUFFALO SOUND, featuring some of NY’s finest:

Nola Ranallo – Vocal , Lyric
Ana Vafai- Violin
Shannon Reilly – Violin
Katie Weissman- Cello
T.J. Borden – Cello
Ethan Hayden – Trombone
Steve Baczkowski- Saxes, Flutes
Madison Greenstone – Clarinets
Megan Kyle- Oboe
David Bailey – Pedal Steel, Processing, Gong

This musical component will be reinforced by a robust visual element; consisting of a new video projection by Filmmaker Jam Vafai featuring the horses so integral to this musical work, and a new steel sculpture by Artist Craig Sheperd, magnifying the feminine sigil that Nola has been developing over the past 5 years. These two works in tandem will create a focal “entrypoint”, mirroring the music’s initial conveyance to Nola herself. 

The poster art was created by long-time collaborator Daniel Galas. “
Pre-sale tickets are available online. 
No one turned away for lack of funds.
