The Kitchen is pleased to welcome back composer, performer, and visual artist Arnold Dreyblatt in this shared evening with Brooklyn-based sound artist MV Carbon.

Among the second generation of New York minimal composers, Arnold Dreyblatt studied music with Pauline Oliveros, La Monte Young, and Alvin Lucier and media art with Kitchen founders Steina and Woody Vasulka. In the 1970s in New York, he developed a unique approach to composition and music performance, inventing a set of new and original instruments, performance techniques, and a system of tuning. He also formed and led numerous ensembles under the title The Orchestra of Excited Strings. Based in Berlin since 1984, Dreyblatt continues to enact these methods in his work as a solo artist, often percussively playing his upright bass along with electronic processing.

MV Carbon focuses on the physicality and vitality of sound and explores interchangeability, the human mechanism, perceptive states of consciousness and alternate realities. Her intention is to provoke an extrasensory awareness through distorting the boundaries of space and time. She uses cello, voice, reel-to-reel tape machines, oscillators, electronics, and amplified objects to weave together intricate soundscapes, sculpting raw synthesis into a mesh of hypnotic pulsations and melodic embellishments.

March 22, 8pm
Tickets $15
