Long Island City, NY–In conjunction with Socrates Sculpture Park’s annual celebration of the Summer Solstice, Socrates Sculpture Park collaborates with Norte Maar to present SOUND EVENT an evening of site-specific sound performances at Socrates Sculpture Park. For this event which will encompass the entire park, noted sound artists will create unique sound platforms through traditional instrumentation, amplification of objects, juxtaposition of voices, and experimental electronic sound.

Among the featured performances are Tristan Perich, a duet of Jacob Kirkegaard with Katinka Fogh Vindelev, a trio of Lesley Flanigan, Maria Chavez, and MV Carbon, a roaming chorus of voices assembled by Audra Wolowiec, and a special performance by Composers Inside Electronics of David Tudor’s “Rainforest I.” Additional performers will include Andrew Hurst and Shona Masarin and others to be announced.

Instrument builder, electronic composer and vocalist Lesley Flanigan and the indie band People Get Ready – praised by NPR’s Bob Boilen as “the best mix of performance art and music I’ve seen in decades” – share an affinity for generating sound through movement and objects. Using feedback, voices, choreography and bespoke instruments, they develop a new composition by exploring the physical qualities of their music. The resulting sonic landscapes can pulse with frenetic energy or hum with an immersive calm.

Hidden at first glance, Tristan Perich, Lesley Flanigan and Robert Henke share a significant pool of common ideas and working methods. Each artist derives their material and sonic results from technical processes they carefully shape and design independent from one another, focused to find 'the music within.' Tristan Perich's digital circuits, Robert Henke's software-based synthesizers, and Lesley Flanigan's intricate speaker feedback instruments do not distinguish between process and result, but rather oscillate in a constant stream of ideas and sounds that continuously amplify each other.

Doors: 19h, Concert: 20h, Tickets: 10€
