The second performance of night three (and the first one to make use of the actual stage) saw Alexandra MacKenzie provide a short set of the transcendentally, operatically inclined chant-pop tracks from her Petra Glynt project. Having just released her first collection of songs—the Of This Land cassette EP—in June 2013, MacKenzie’s set was limited to tracks from that output of challenging soundscapes—with the exception of her soon thereafter released “This You Need” single. Always noted for the visual components of her shows, MacKenzie gave her Wavelength performance from the center of a massive psyche visual projection provided by Steve Reaume.
