Emotionality is a recording of a live performance by Strawberry at Or Gallery’s Dance-a-thon in Vancouver, Canada, produced and remixed by the band. Weaving together vocal samples, improvisational sounds, and discordant perspectives, the experimental dance record bids listeners to move their bodies among a mass of unruly voices. Words pierce with percussive insistence, forming rhythms that crest and disperse into order and disarray.

Emotionality is the fifth record released by Second Spring, an artist-run record label that aims to forge an alternative to the rhythms of traditional gallery programming. The record is the latest in a series of projects by artists whose practices extend beyond traditional music production.
