Synth Nights presents two artists active in the NYC electronic music underground, working heavily in tradition of “live hardware” moved by a contemporary amalgam of multiple machine music forms. Organized by C. Spencer Yeh.
Stallone The Reducer is Samuel Consiglio from Detroit, Michigan. Having previously operated in outfits such as Tamion 12 Inch and ADULT., his work is created on synthesizers, rhythm generators, samplers, tapes, and voices, with an emphasis on analog production techniques. Largely presenting in night clubs and bars and on vinyl, cassette and CD, Consiglio has also exhibited his sound work in galleries like Shoot the Lobster NYC, Scaramouche NYC, helper Brooklyn, Peres Projects Berlin, and MoCAD Detroit. His most recent full length Private Property was published in 2016 by EST. 83, a division of the FIT Sound label.
Lucy Lewis is an artist and musician based in New York. Her practice is, largely, an experimentation with analog hardware devices, often taming and routing feedback paths, which are used as a generative modulation source. Lucy is a founding member of the Opensignal collective, a group of artists addressing the state of gender and race in experimental electronic-based sound and art practices through technical skill-shares, critical discussion, and performance. Her performances have been included in programming for MATA Festival, MoMA PS1, Non-Event, and Goethe Institut, among others.
