About the Event


Nepenthae’s slow moving and visceral sonic world draws upon diverse influences ranging from noise, doom metal, free jazz, and spectralism, invoking a full spectrum vibratory experience, oscillating between stasis and movement, and the materialintensity of low frequency sound.   Nepenthae’s unique instrumentation features: 17-string electric bass (Zach Layton), contrabass, (Henry Fraser), and drums (Greg Fox).

Le Son 7

Le Son 7, a sound art gallery based in France, on the eve of its first exhibition in New York (from 9 – 14 January, 570 Broome Street, 10013 NY) presents a one-hour guided listening session of multi-channel and stereo pieces. The gallery only works with audio, there is nothing to see.

On the program are two stereo pieces, a compelling study of climate change in California by Bernie Krause and a sonification of the oscillations of stars by Caroline Devine, a four-channel deep-listening contemplation of different cities by KMRU and two eight channel works: a supernatural evocation of the ancient symbols by Beatriz Ferreyra and a tribute to a departed friend from Stephen Vitiello.


HxH, a duo consisting of Chris Williams and Lester St. Louis.  We are an electroacoustic duo of trumpet, cello and electronics based. We have been working as a duo for almost 2 years now, where we’ve done performances throughout New York and little in Europe; sculpting and expanding our approach to electroacoustic improvisation.
