UPDATE: Sound/Source Features Dirty Projectors's Olga Bell's 'Krai,' Vicky Chow, Alvin Lucier, Tristan Perich, New Amsterdam Records at MoMa PS1
UPDATE: Sound/Source will also feature classical pianist and member of Dirty Projectors Olga Bell. Bell is set to perform her techno-experimental rock album Krai, her sonnet to native Russia. Also on the bill is Alvin Lucier’s 1969 minimalist classic I Am Sitting in a Room.
This fall, New Amsterdam Records will present Sound/Source, an all-day electronic music festival at MoMA PS1. Produced in collaboration with L3M, the Oct. 19 event will feature Tyondai Braxton, Paul Lansky with members of Roomful of Teeth, Vicky Chow and Tristan Perich, Holly Herndon, Alvin Lucier and Huerco S.
The event also signifies the release of Chow's new album, Surface Image, via New Amsterdam Records featuring compositions from Perich.
The day-long exploration of electroacustic music will be accompanied by a set of sound instillations by Nate Boyce and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), in the Boiler Room of MoMA PS1 as well as Daniel Wohl with Bell and Caroline Shaw in the Richard Serra Room on MoMA PS1's roof and Lucky Dragons in the MoMA PS1 elevator. Synthesizer extradionaire Moog will make an appearance by way of an electronic installation of handcrafted instruments.
The event focuses on the interplay between human and machine sounds with a live performance of pieces from Paul Lansky's series of "Idle Chatter" compositions on its 30th anniversary. This new version of the vocal arrangement will be performed by members of Roomful of Teeth as well as an eight-channel, surround-sound arrangement performed by Lansky himself. The compositions will be discussed by Herndon in a panel.
The event takes place from noon to 10 pm at MoMA PS1 in Queens. Tickets start at $20 and you can purchase them here.© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
